Dao-miu and Chinese barbers
Last Tuesday afternoon, I was in Chinatown to visit my dentist for a "deep cleaning" procedure. While there, I purchased from the vegetable vendor on East Broadway and Catherine Street a pound of "dao-miu" (a leafy green vegetable) for home cooking for $2.50 ... I made a delcious risotto with jasmine brown rice and left-over Cantonese roast duck. A pound of "dao-miu" can make four portions of vegetable serving. A very good tasty and economic means to enjoy good food.
Also made a new discovery walking north on Eldridge Street - a brand new Chinatown of barber shops where you can get a hair-cut for $5-$6 ... a pastry shop for egg tarts, almond cookies, spoonge cakes, coffee and tea for $0.50 each ... numerous fresh noodle eateries from the province of Fukien ... very good Beijing fried dumplings, fried sesame bread, hot-sour soup, boiled pork-chive dumplings, etc. eatery. (Eldridge Street runs between Canal and Division Streets in Lower Manhattan. Eldridge is a one-way street that runs north. It is three blocks east of Bowery and one block west of Allen Street (First Avenue below Houston Street)
