View Full Version : Pacha

I was recently at a REAL chinese resturant and their vegetarian menu had "mixed vegetables with baby pacha". This is one place around here that actually has a vegetarian menu but I have no idea what baby pacha is. Has anyone ever heard of this?? Many of their other veggie selections had tofu (not for me!) so I am hoping this is something that I could convert to raw.
Oh--they don't speak english very well so that did not get me very far.

One pacha I know of is a little variety of banana.
I did a search on the word and the other thing that popped up was that it was some type of edible camphor used for seasoning.

are you sure about the spelling? Pacha doesn't look like being converted into English correctly and I have never heard of that veggie (and I live in China).
Maybe check the spelling again or have them write down the Chinese for it and send it to me.

Rowan- banana is interesting & a camphor seasoning--I did not find that at all--well I am open to a dish with both of those raw so maybe I will just go for it.
Madmel- I am almost sure that is how it was spelled, but maybe their english translation was off. Thanks for your help, I'll see what I can come up with!!

Ok so Pacha is another name for baby bok choy!!!!! It is all over the place here. I was strolling along downtown and four restaurants with their menus in the window had a pacha dish.
I had a dish of pacha & baby bellas with a curry type sauce over top--it was so good!!! I am trying to recreate the sauce myself right now....I found curry leaves-which I have never seen before in the states. I'm excited!!
