This Tribeca snack shop is so bare-bones, you'll walk by thinking it's still under construction. There's nothing skimpy, though, about the kitchen's tasty sandwiches ($4 to $4.75), all substantial specimens served on homemade mantou, the doughy steamed bread of northern China. Reminiscent of the buns you can get at Momofuku Noodle Bar and at Chino's, Province's version is sesame-seeded, griddled, and layered with meaty slabs of braised or spicy pork or grilled chicken, pickled cucumber, cilantro, and lashings of hoisin or sweet bean sauce. There's a good, if slightly chewy beef-short-rib-and-kimchi version, too, and exactly three other items on the brief menu: a tofu salad, a beet salad and one of the best, non-gloppy bowls of cold sesame noodles in town.
