Best Blast of Heat

Mapo Dofou at Xiao Bao Biscuit

Staff Pick

Psst. You. Yeah, you. Shh, shh. Do you like it spicy? I mean, do you like it really spicy? Do you want your lungs to heave and your nostrils to swell? Do you want your toes to curl? Do you want to have flashbacks to that time you dropped acid and wandered the scorching hot desert for three days and met your spirit animal? Of course, you do. I can tell by just looking at you. You're a capsicum freak, a hot head. Well, I've got something for you. The Mapo Dofou at Xiao Bao Biscuit. It's this soup, see, made from Sichuan peppercorns, chili oil, broad bean, and tofu, and it'll numb your mouth and your lips. No lie. The best part: It's tastier than an Andy Warhol Campbell Soup painting dipped in Taste No. 5 Umami Paste. And if it's not the single hottest dish in town, it's the most addictive.
