Pork-Stuffed Pocket Bread at China MaMa

What China MaMa lacks in atmosphere it makes up for with its extensive menu of Chinese favorites. While the steamed dumplings rightfully get much of the attention, the pork-stuffed pocket bread is definitely worth ordering. Pan-fried sesame bread is folded into a pocket and stuffed with minced pork seasoned with basil, forming an alternative to the basic sandwich. It’s perfect for a quick appetizer or lunch on the go. $7.50 for 4 pieces, 3420 S. Jones Blvd., 873-1977.

Grilled Filone with Duck Egg at DOCG

Don’t let the low price fool you—with a nice glass of wine, this hearty appetizer could easily be a meal unto itself! Still, meant to be shared is this heaping plate of ciabbata bread, sliced thick, brushed with olive oil and deeply grilled. All that’s left is to dip in the fonduta (melted semi-soft fontina cheese with chopped, preserved black truffles and truffle oil) and a delicately poached quail egg topped with another drizzle of olive oil and just a pinch of Moldon sea salt. It’s enough to make you wanna do the Truffle Shuffle.
