Go ahead , Steam your buns....

The New Kam Nam market in Chinatown on Canal Street is just an amazing market for me. They've got enough food products there for anyone with a cooking passion to experiment for months at a time. When I shop there , I always pick up ingredients , that often I combine with non Asian ideas.

Last Saturday, I picked up a pack of fresh spinach buns, thinking that I would make a simple spice and soy sauce to top them with once steamed. Well today , things ended up a just a bit differently. My playful urge to experiment woke up.

I knew that spinach and mushrooms went well together, so I decided to make a mushroom cream based sauce.   The two combined perfectly and the dish surprised everybody . It's now part of my oer d'oeuvres options.

Longer days than usual, and lots of New York Metro pressure than I would like on a daily basis. So,  with the weatherman telling me that we would have some fairly nice outlooks for this weekend,  I decided to spend less time playing with my computers.

Given that Little Italy is also right next door to Chinatown, we would stop there too. If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.
