Iced gai-lan

Item: Iced gai-lan, 冰鎮芥藍

Location: Zhuhai, China

Previously we’ve featured the Chinese “choi sum” but here, we have the “gai-lan” (or kai-lan), which is translated as the Chinese broccoli or Chinese kale. As I’ve never had kale, I don’t know if it’s an appropriate comparison, but comparing gai-lan to broccoli doesn’t seem to me to suit. Anyway, at a restaurant in Zhuhai, my friend and I ordered the simple iced gai-lan in an otherwise very meaty dinner. Very necessary!
