Great Sichuan cuisine - in mid-town

Wu Liang Ye Restaurant is a find for Sichuan cusine in mid-town.

The ma pao tofu (also called ma bo dofu, ma po dofu, etc. ... on the Wu Liang Ye menu as Chef's Ma Paul Tofu, which includes tofu, ground pork, green onion, green pepper, black bean sauce and spices) is the best we have had - anywhere ... spicy and served hot .. the tofu is fresh .. cooked just right ... try the razor clams cold appetizer ...

338 Lexington Avenue (between 39th St. and 40th St.), 212-370-9647.

That ma-bo tofu looks great! Bet it tasted great too!

We have a place in San Francisco called "Spices" that specializes in the spicy cuisines of China and Taiwan. There are two locations; the one that does the ma-bo tofu is on 8th Avenue.

How do I know they're legit? Besides the fact that it's one of my fave places to stuff my face, when I was in Beijing recently and asked to go to a place that specialized in spicy food, I ordered this dish and it was pretty much the same as Spices, both in heat and in appearance.

Looks like your place is the same! Will have to visit next time I'm in NYC...
