Sichuan boiled beef / Mapo tofu at Asia Room in Paris

Sichuan boiled beef (水煮牛肉 – “shuizhu niurou” in Chinese; “marmite de boeuf piquant” in French).

This is a classic dish from the province of Sichuan in southwestern China. It was very spicy and really good. It was only my first time eating this dish and, after Asia Room, I had it at many other restaurants in Paris.

Above, there were soy sprouts and tofu below the meat.

Above, I also had nems.

I came back to Asia Room some time later to eat another classic dish from Sichuan:

Above, mapo tofu.

Above, ravioli.

Spicy Noodle Soup at My Noodles in Paris

Spicy noodle soup with beef (N1 on the menu). The noodles are handmade in the shop and have a pleasant chewiness.

Above, I came back a few weeks later. This time, I tried the spicy beef with noodles in soup (N2). It was pretty similar to N1 (although with a different kind of cut of beef, as well as some tofu and bean sprouts, hidden under the noodles).
