“Chinese”

Hot and Spicy Shrimp

I first encountered this mouth-watering dish at the Hunan Garden in New York City’s Chinatown. This is the closest I’ve come to duplicating that restaurant dish.

Chen Ma-po Tofu

Ma-Po Tofu is an authentic Szechuan dish. Enjoyed by Chinese on top of a bowl of white rice, it’s spicy heat makes it a favorite to warm up from the cold. The Chinese say “Ma-Po-Toe”, leaving off the last syllable. I once had such a craving for Ma-Po Tofu that I visited 14 Chinese restaurants in Tucson, AZ – one every night for two weeks – to see who had the best! This dish can be made with or without the pork.
