This man tempts me almost daily after work. He's cooking up a Chinese origin snack that took a while for me to develop a taste for. In this case location certainly was everything. After a day at work, a fresh snack is always hard to pass up. It was only a matter of time before he had me hooked.
Trouble is, I don't know the name. I've asked, he's told me, and I've forgotten. Typical. Also, he's almost always just finishing as I walk by, thus the cooking process is elusive. Any ideas on the green that is used?
Here's some a cookin'. On the right they sit next to some Kanom Kui Chai; dumpling of sorts filled with any number of things which include: Chinese chives, bamboo shoots, and or taro. They're all served up with a thick, black, soy sauce, and chili.
Do take care to eat them soon after ordering or they will soak up all the sauce and become scary blobs.
This is what happens when you take them to go, put them in a bowl in your kitchen, and take photos. Good for documentation, but not much else.
