Mala xiang guo from Tian Fu Ren Jia (天府人家)


I've never had much experience with mala xiang guo with the exception of a pretty unpleasant one once in town years ago. I thought this one was pretty tasty. These guys don't have the variety that many of the mala xiang guo shops in town have but it's definitely works for me as a convenient quick fix. The middling heat (中辣) was manageable, possibly turned down a notch or two to suit the locals. I like the combination of savoury heat, salt and spices. There's few options for meat, some bean curd products, vegetables and mushrooms. I can see us coming back.
