The mapo dofu here is served in a hot earthen pot so as not to damage the flavour of the Sichuan peppers. The large dish (¥1,100) features a hearty amount of sauce and an equally generous helping of rice, and is seasoned with dou ban jiang paste and chilies. Couple that with the quality of the ground meat and the exceptional 'ma' and 'la' components, and you have an ideal match for the rice. They also cook up a mean tantanmen.
