An Only In NYC Snackscovery?

A recurring KKNY theme seems to be how much I love how this wonderful city o' mine is a complete cultural mashup. And to show how much it's influenced how I think...the other night, when I was craving some sort of quick snack, the crazy light bulb went on. I ended up with an American/Chinese/Jewish beauty: almond butter with Sichuan chili paste on matzo.

Sound weird? Well, it's awesome, a sort of sibling to a high-quality dish of cold noodles with sesame sauce (like the ones at Szechuan Gourmet). And the combo is a bit of a revelation: it must be so easy to make a sort of "from scratch" version of those noodles at home...I must try.
