Chinatown Breakfast Feast $5.65 2/11/12

AubWah | Feb 11, 201209:21 AM

First stop was Century Cafe. These guys are the real deal purveyors of Congee. $1.65 buys a healthy serving of chicken congee, which comes packed with flimsy bean curd sheets and slivers of fresh ginger. Next stop was Sun Light Bakery, cheung fan experts. I ordered it with watercress, a superlative combination. The fresh vegetable cooked to a beautiful shade of green. I also got my sticky rice stuffed with chicken, sausage, maybe some mushroom..these guys are your breakfast kings on this lawless stretch of East Broadway. This stop set me back $3. Last I found myself on Mott south of Canal, at the open window offering steamed pork buns. Last time I went they were 90 cents and now they are $1, but thats 2012 for you. I don't see myself having lunch for another few hours
