Ramen with mapo tofu is not common in Japan. But I tried it in a Chinese restaurant chain.


Mapo tofu is a popular Chinese dish in Japan. Many Chinese restaurant chains serve it. Mapo tofu consists of tofu in a spicy sauce with minced meat. I tried ramen with mapo tofu in a restaurant for the first time yesterday. The restaurant also serves fried rice with mapo tofu in the picture above. These are hybrid foods which could possibly become popular in the future. The hybrid foods which have already been famous are udon with curry, curry rice with tonkatsu and so on. These names are curry udon and katsu curry in Japanese.
