One of the most popular bowl recipes in Japan is of Chinese origin. Mabodon
is inspired by a great classic from Sichuan cuisine: “Mapo Tofu” (also: Mapo Doufo, Ma Po tofu), tofu cubes served in a spicy minced meat sauce. What makes this dish so special is the mouthfeel resulting from the interaction of the main ingredients, as well as the really invigorating „spiciness“ of the original recipe.
