Year of the Takeout Day 177: Jin Jja Roo, Food Gallery 32

Mapa Tofu from Jin Jja Roo at Food Gallery 32 (11 West 32nd Street, 212-967-0077)

Though the eateries at Food Gallery 32 feature almost entirely Korean fare, there's a fair amount of Chinese and Japanese-inspired dishes, too.

Enter mapa tofu, which is Jin Jja Roo's take on ma po tofu.

For $6.99, you get a steaming plate of silken tofu that's not too different from the Chinese variety, save for the woody nuttiness.

That's from the many black mushrooms in the stew, which give this dish a meaty vibe.
