Feeding gailan to a Mexican

Last night, I brought a Mexican friend over to Fufu Cafe over on Bellaire and Beltway 8, who then left it up to me to order the food. When I ordered the spicy beef noodle soup, he inquired if it was a thick soup or a brothy one.

I told him it was like caldo de res with attitude.

Then came the crispy rice noodle pancake with beef and gailan (Chinese "broccoli"). Which he said reminded him of a very tasty sopes or huarache.

Perhaps there are more analogs in Mexican cooking in describing Chinese cooking than I thought.
