Phenomenally Mind Bogglingly Spicy Sichuan Tofu at Jujube Tree, Chengdu, China
Since we did not manage to try the MaPo tofu on our first visit , we decided to make a 2nd trip to this eatery. It was definitely a tongue-opener trip, read on to find out why....

Mapo Tofu
Phenomenally Mind Bogglingly Spicy are the words that comes to my mind when I think of this dish. Immediately after my first mouthful, a weird sensation fills my entire mouth. It was as if I was undergoing a dental procedure that required a hundred local anesthetic injections. My entire mouth was numb. Then all of a sudden, I experience an overwhelming gush of pins and needles. Never had a weirder feeling in my life! Amazing what a few Sichuan peppercorns can do, though I do not think I will be craving for this dish in the near future!



Chili oil and rice vinegar to go with my dumplings and wonton!


This time we tried the mixed dumplings


The wontons were so good we ordered them a 2nd time.


The toothpicks are not made from wood, but from glutinous rice. I was told it is edible, weird I know, but one would have to have really strong teeth to eat them.


Chong Qing Hot pot
We actually prefer the Sichuan hotpot, but this is still worth a try! This would be a great option for those of you who have a low spicy tolerance. The chef used a wide variety of mushrooms in this dish. One of which is not available in Malaysia. We found a dried version of it at Carrefour in Chengdu. In fact Carrefour is a great place to shop for local products.



Appetizer. Black Fungus and walnuts, drizzled with a generous amount of sesame oil. Just one word, YUM.
