The Circle Is Now Complete

Yesterday was a very Chinese day for me. I've been feeling very confused lately, so perhaps China's part communist, part capitalist system symbolized the inner turmoil I am going through. Regardless, after all my talk of authentic Chinese cuisine at Ollie's, I ventured down to Manhattan's Chinatown for some pork buns.

I went to the fabled Mei Li Wah, which recently re-opened in a new location after a scary and abrupt closing. Anyway, here is a photo diary...

I took this picture outside of the bakery

Uh, I took this picture inside the bakery

This is a pork bun

This bun is filled with shredded coconut -- it was awesome

On an unrelated note, this is the entrance for the Manhattan Bridge on the Manhattan side
