Angelina, Those are very similar to what I used, maybe the same. Many different regional names for these young, tender, bamboo tips. They are sold here (in Kunming) in a pickled form as well as in a fresh form that has just been peeled and steamed. The latter are usually called 白笋呀 in my experience.


I have sometimes run into them at restaurant meals just served steamed with a few of their outer leaves. You peel them individually at the table and dip them in a spicy vinegar sauce. Considered a delicacy. Particularly popular in Dai Minority 傣族 restaurants 傣味 here.


Did you like them? How were they prepared?


I remember another thread in which you were talking about maybe opening a restaurant some day. So perhaps you are an excellent cook. Eager for your insights.
