stumbled upon the deluxe food market in chinatown. its a grand foodbloggin experience.  everyone is chinese. after paul mckenna made me confident, i stand up and say “bahk fahn” and “yut gah”. otherwise i have no idea how one would order if not a chinaman.  after seeming chinese they go ahead and charge me only $4.35 for my lunch box and scallion bun. “mh-goy!”
