Anecdotes: Mapo doufu can also be found in China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan, where the flavor is adapted to local tastes. In Japan, where the dish is called mabo tofu, was introduced by Chen Kenmin who opened the first restaurant of Sichuan in Tokyo in the 1950s. Instead of using only bean paste salty and spicy, Chen has also adopted the sweet bean paste in the recipe and make it less spicy and less greasy. In Hong Kong and Taiwan, similar variations can also be found.
