Mapu doufu is simply delicous.
In Portland, Maine, there is a restaurant called the Honey Paw; their mapu doufu is my favorite! It is spicy, it is comfort, it is everything. When I moved away from Portland, I was sad; and one day, I was craving the mapu doufu so much. I decided to figure out how to make it. I went to my local asian grocery store to pick up ingredients listed in a recipe that seemed promising. I followed this recipe from omnivorescookbook (minus the wine because I couldn't find it and I opted to add in some spinach). The result?! Absolute brilliance! It was soooo good and my family thought so, too! **grainy picture below**
However, if you do find yourself in Portland, Maine, definitely stop by the Honey Paw!
