A fulfilling weekend day out

Mapo Dou Fu Restaurant, is an authentic Szechuan Restaurant located along Sin Ming Road which serves a tantalising steamboat that uses Yuan Yang Stock... This traditionally-decorated restaurant is not only famous for their 'mala' steamboat, they also serve authentic Szechuan Cuisine. Baby and I decided to order the a la carte items from the menu.

This restaurant is an outlet of the famous Mapo Doufu Restaurant in Chengdu, China, reputable for its authentic Szechuan cuisine dishes and the waitresses are polite, patient and helpful. A couple of them are the natives from Chengdu.

I ordered the Szechuan Hot & Sour soup for myself... The peppery-taste was overpowering and it made the soup taste like a pepper soup.

Baby had Crabmeat Soup... It tasted pretty light and delicious

We ordered the signature dish in the house, Mapo Doufu. Being an authentic dish from Szechuan, it tasted powerfully spicy with both conventional spiciness and the characteristic 'mala' (numbing spiciness) flavor of Szechuan cuisine.

Kung Pao Chicken originated from Szechuan Province ansd Map Dou Fu Restaurant use the original Szechuan version to prepare Kung Pao Chicken. The diced chicken meat was well-marinated and was seasoned with Szechuan Style chilli peppers and Szechuan peppercorns, and stir-fried with onions and peanuts

We had Fried French Bean in Szechuan Style with garlic and peppercorns. Tasted pretty alright but it was kinda too salty for my taste buds.

 The damage was SGD53-ish. After finishing my meal, I realized that the most important component of the Sichuan dishes is the Szechuan peppercorns, as they will give a distinctive numbing flavor to your taste buds.
