More Steam Tablin’ from Han’s Deli (645 Broadway 212-473-8596)

The man behind the counter, perhaps sensing that the steam table selections were not so great at this hour, asked us to name our price for said container. We said five bucks, and he said: “No, that’s too much. Give me two.”

We did.

He was right.

The lo mein(?) wasn’t too bad — it sated — but the meat dishes had acquired a wood-liked texture.
