I told mom I wanted to go out and get breakfast from the 茶室 (coffee shop/food court) outside. She stared at me and said: “茶室？吃什么？又去吃猪肉粉？？(Coffee shop? What you going to eat? Pork Noodles again??) … Tsk!!!”
I did not confirm her assumption with a response and just turned around and left the kitchen quietly.
To prevent me from having pork noodles “again” (my last indulgence was more than two months ago on my last trip back), she prepared this meatless sandwich in doubly quick time. Shredded purple cabbage, white cabbage, cucumber, carrot and spicy mayo, in between two slices of flour-less bread.
