Why do Chinese restaurants usually not cut up Kai-Lan?

Pincus | Feb 25, 2010 11:40 AM

99% of the time when I order kai-lan/Chinese broccoli, it comes uncut, which makes it a test of skill when eating with chopsticks

Recently I was out with a business colleague and we got a side dish of it, and it was both delicious and cut into chopstick-friendly sizes.

Is there a deeper reason why often it is not cut up?
