Carby Bites at Mei Yu Spring – NYC
If you aren’t low or no-carbing, may I introduce you to Mei Yu Spring?
If fried bread with chives, noodles, and eggs is what you’re craving, the Chives Pancake ($1; pictured above) is for you.
But keep in mind, it’s a lot of thick bread.
I prefer the Pan Fried Buns (6 for $2.75).
The amount of carbs is probably comparable, but when soaked with pork juice, it’s more acceptable.
The Bean Paste Pancake ($1) with its greasy, flaky layers flecked with crunchy sesame seeds and lightly sweetened bean paste filling, however, is what I constantly go back for. It’s rare sweet trumps savory in my book, but this baby does. Never a carby regret.

Oh. My. Gawd. I want all of that. Whatever. I’ll live off of carbs.
