This College Point Sichuan restaurant is currently only offering takeout and delivery, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to try their spicy mapo tofu. There’s less thin, oily sauce to coat the tofu than we’ve seen in other versions, and minimal pork at the party. But don’t let that fool you into thinking it’ll be mild or subtle. To say this mapo has heat is an understatement. There’s a lot of pepper involved, which makes us love the name of the restaurant even more.
