Mantao Chinese Sandwiches
Mantao Chinese Sandwiches gets its moniker and its modus sandwichi from mantao, a traditional Chinese steamed bread common in the country's northern regions. This chic-casual eatery updates the favorite by stippling mantao buns with sesame seeds and then toasting them over flames specially imported from the face of the sun. The menu includes a fried-egg sandwich with Chinese sausage ($3.50), a spicy pork sandwich ($3.95), and a black-pepper chicken sandwich ($4.50); tofu and mushroom sandwiches are also available. The sandwiches run a bit on the smaller side, so diners may want to order Mantao's combo box ($9.95), which comes with any two sandwiches, a side of Chinese slaw, and shrimp chips, the beloved ballpark snack.
