I went to what seems to be the now combined #24 and #25 stalls, stared at the woman making making the $4.00 salad listed on the electric board. I asked the young woman next to me what were the dressing components and she replied that the salad was great and I should get it, so I did.
The dish is based on rice noodle and gluten with crisp from cucumber and bean sprouts and dressed with eight liquids - vinegar, sesame paste, garlic water, sesame oil, chili oil, and three other items I couldn't identify. When finished it is a warm weather classic, great bright vinegar and chili oil accents, power from lots of garlic, all tempered by the sesame paste. A wow. Left feeling tiptop, ready to face the weather.
Stall # 24 now has a menu in Chinese and English.
