Year of the Takeout Day 196: House of Vegetarian
Hot and Spicy Dried Bean Curd with Black Bean Sauce from House of Vegetarian (68 Mott Street, 212-226-6572)
More like deep fried than dried, this $8.95 tofu dish features a simple, savory black bean gravy and plentiful vegs. It's hearty without being greasy, and unpretentiously satisfying.
