From the show-through where this black sesame and sticky rice cake ($1.75) had been sliced in two, I expected the Chinese equivalent of a marble rye. I also imagined that the sticky rice would be integrated in the crumb, not concealed as rubbery bands that, once bitten through, would slink back slowly toward the loaf. The taro cake, which promised no add-ins, might have been a less disconcerting choice.
