At the outdoor market on East Broadway and Forsyth under the Manhattan bridge, they sell Chinese breads and other fried stuff. I noticed two different pre-wrapped sandwiches. One with beef and one with Chinese Broccoli (Kai-lan). Which pill to take? I wasn’t sure how safe the meat one was, so I went with the veggie, plus it was colorful. Then I thought, “Why would a Chinese Broccoli sandwich be a good idea?” Sounds gross. That is until I ate the whoofed down the whole thing. It’s awesome! Surprisingly delicious! It was stir-fry oily style which soaked into the sesame seed bun. $1.25 holmes. My reality has been shattered.01-outdoor-market-east-broadway-manhattan-bridge02-chinese-broccoli-sandwich

    That’s an interesting concept…It’s like a salad sandwich, except the greens have been cooked. I think I still prefer greens over rice though.

    pretty sure its not chinese broc. but mustard greens. maybe. right at the same stall there is also a char-siu bun; it’s pretty unique; looks like a round knish (similar dough finish) but instead of stuffed with potato, it’s stuffed with chunks of non-red-food-dye char siu. tastes really good when taken home and thrown in the toaster oven. also $1.25 I think. STEAL.

    Generally I don’t read post on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very compelled me to try and do so! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thank you, quite great article.
