Loved the MAPO TOFU!! I'm in no way an expert when it comes to cuisine from China, but I can say with CERTAINTY that if you go here, you'll enjoy a good food experience! When you arrive it's a simple COVID set-up for takeout only. They greeted me after I was there for a few minutes. Came here for the mapo tofu which for some reason is under STINKY TOFU on the menu. It was delicious with the mala spice and a good level of heat. Not really enough for my palate, but it was still at a good level. Again, I'm not an expert but it did have a weird sort of taste that was present right when you put it in your mouth. Donno why but it was off putting. Cheers to mala!
