Now, I’m not a big fan of lettuce, so for years I never tried Sang Choy Bow because I thought that is all you could taste.
Imagine my surprise when I did finally taste it – now it is a ‘Friday Night’ food with things like tacos or pizza – and the kids love it! I love food you can eat with your hands!
