The strange and wonderful world of the butcher in Chinatown. The greasy drip of fat from duck and chicken. The crispy crunch of roast pork, cut to order. How many pounds? Crispy or fatty?
Chicken with feet? Turkey tail?
Charsiu whole or chopped?
If you know the butcher, they may offer you a piece that never makes it to the scale. A tempting morsel that passes lips and teases tongue. Yummy and delicious and so very bad for you…
Don’t stare too long or it will disappear before your eyes.
