Here’s what they had to say about this one – ‘Mapo Tofu is one of the most popular Chinese dishes you can eat in Japan. Chungking Chinese Szechwan Restaurant located in Yokohama’s Chinatown serves authentic Mapo Tofu with Szechwan pepper. Myojo has succeeded in reproducing the taste of that Mapo Tofu with their original techniques. Enjoy the hot and sharp taste of Mapo Tofu Ramen!’

The noodle block.
Loose seasoning and garnish from the cup.
A wet sachet.
A reddish liquid.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Noodles came out well and have a round shape and light gauge. Broth is like a gravy – thick and full of flavor. Sichuan peppercorn is just there – any less and it would be indistinguishable, and it teases from bite to bite. Included garnish of tofu is quite nice. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.
