Best Green Beans (2003)
Kam's Chinese garlic beans
The first time a friend ordered the L-2 lunch special of garlic string beans at Kam's, we thought she was insane. Maybe all the hot yoga she was doing was melting her mind. Who would order just a plate of green beans for lunch? Have one, she said, as we munched on our lemon chicken. We ate one. Then another. Then we tried to pawn off our chicken dinner and take all of her lunch. It's like the owners of Kam's hijacked Jack, stole his magic beans and planted a special super-flavorful beanstalk in their kitchen.
