Mapo Tofu- and "Wok-Style"-Inspired Ramen
Josh Reisner's mapo tofu ramen is a beautiful marriage of mapo tofu, the spicy tongue-numbing Sichuan dish, and Japanese ramen. It calls for chicken and tofu; use just tofu if you want to create a vegetarian version. Make sure to have chile oil on hand for the finishing touch. The Golden Assari Chicken Chintan Stock included here can also be used to make Reisner's Adobo-Inspired Ramen, which incorporates the flavors of Filipino adobo.
