Soy Kitchen brand - pre-packaged mapo tofu

Shaddup! Blasphemy, you say!

No, this stuff is actually really good when you need a quick fix. I got some in the tofu section at Kam Maan, near the barbecue meat area.

Its packaging is identical to regular tofu, i.e., a big brick in a white plastic container with peel-off top, so you may miss it easily. And when you open it, it looks exactly like a block of tofu. You wonder if there is some sort of "sauce packet". But on the bottom is a layer of peppery-red oily ground TVP "pork", and when you invert it, it looks like some kind of mapo flan. Fruit on the bottom.

But, yeah, this is some good shit, especially after you've been working at the hospital since 4:45am, and too lazy to go across the bridge to Thailand Cafe in Cambridge, that dreadful Thai place that sells delightful Sichuan food.

Only 360 cals for the entire package, too. Good food to have on hand.
