Until yesterday I hadn’t had good nikuman for years; not since I lived in Tokyo. Last night, however, I discovered, buried beneath the escalator in Porter Square Station, a small newsstand selling freshly steamed pork nikuman.
Of course, I should really say baozi since these were authentic Chinese steamed buns. Served, oddly enough, in a plastic glove.
Oddness aside, they’re delicious. If I passed through Porter Square every day I could imagine a stop at the newsstand quickly becoming a breakfast habit.
