Yesterday night was all about the fine dining experience. At the end of the meal, they brought out a dessert that looked just like Dan San. (Dan San is a fried dough, coated in honey that they have been selling at Mei Lai Wah for years.)
My date saw me playing with my food. I examined the fancy plated pastry... and then took a bite. OMG it's dan san with a little sprinkled sugar.
Huge portions of dan san are available at Mei Lai Wah for about a dollar. Everything is a bargain in Chinatown. Sometimes I wonder why I venture outside!
