This is one of the great treats of northern Chinese eating—a rectangular, flaky flatbread that is cooked in a skillet with a blanket of sesame seeds. It is classically a breakfast food, split and stuffed with a deep-fried dough wand and then dunked cheerfully into a bowl of hot soybean milk. At China Moon, however, we love it as a crispy sandwich bread. Stuffed with thin slices of any of our roasted meats and cut into diagonal lozenges for finger eating, it is a great lunchtime favorite.
