Wondering about pea shoots

howdini | Aug 9, 2012 07:50 PM

Just ordered from Grand Sichuan on St. Mark's, and l can't help but wonder: what makes pea shoots (which l dearly love) so expensive? Most restaurants price them starting at at least $12/order. Are they very rare? Difficult to grow or store? What gives?

Also, who does your favorite pea shoots?
