Ma Po Tofu with Crab at China Village [Albany]

Had this yesterday. It was incredibly delicious with an amazing amount of crab from one plucked fresh from the tank, the silkiest tofu I'd ever had, wide slices of ginger and scallions and, of course, lots of spice. At $24.95 it served us as a main dish for lunch and then for my dinner that night, my breakfast the next morning and also for lunch. In addition to the crab we had pork dumplings in homemade spicy sauce, xao long bao (which are always delicate, so delicate that I can't taste much when they come with the spicy items. But my daughter loves them) and spicy tan tan noodle soup, which has sauteed crumbled pork on top, a few bok choy, and dark and complex spicy/sesame broth.

If you're a crab + spice lover, get there while they still have this dish!
