From the Test Kitchen

Taiwanese bok choy is a type of Chinese cabbage with long, thin stalks that are just as tender as the wide leaves. Chinese cabbage can take on many forms, and “bok choy,” which translates to “white vegetable” in Cantonese, is the name used to describe many different varieties. We found this variety added a slightly mustardy kick to the earthy soba noodles with the sweet sesame-soy sauce.
