Well, in terms of street vendor food anyways. ;-]


At first I wouldn't eat the stuff, because I thought, man, I ain't going to eat pork that's been sitting out in 34c weather for the last 5 hours!  

But I can't stop eating them now and they are so cheap, why should I?


What is it?  It's thinly sliced pork with some pepper seasoning and if you like, green onions.  This is a must for any foreigner visiting China.

So many good foods in china hard to choose but went to su zhou and had peanuts with chicken and chilli and that tasted amazing.  Every province has rich and wonderful foods just not enough time to eat lol

Isn't that tool that spreads cement on bricks? Oh well whatever that gets the job done huh hahah. To add to that, I also enjoy Yang rou chuan (Lamb kabobs Xinjiang style) the pepper which they put creates this insatiable aroma that reminds me of the essence of indian spices and the raw flavor from Gobi desert.

What am I writing here? Don't ask...because I don't even know anymore haha.

back on topic! mmmm food *drools*...*salivates*

here's another favorite....the bowl in the middle is rice noodles, cucumber, some chili sauce perhaps with a tad of soy sauce, fried tofu, peanutes, cilantro, chil, and bean sprouts.  not sure, but maybe some vinegar too.  this street vendor food was only like 2-3rmb i think...for the middle bowl.  maybe i'm easily pleased, i don't know.

My son eats meat-on-a-stick all the time, he's been very brave with food here, I'm very proud of him. What do you call it (CHINESE PEOPLE HELP)? SOmeone told me to call it "yang rou", but that just means mutton, it doesn't say anything about a stick, and when he asked for yang rou once somewhere else, he got a plate full of nasty meat that was nothing like it. And what if it's other kinds of meat on a stick?

I got jianbing a few times, I like it a lot - the big round 'pancake' thing - not like what I know as pancakes at all actually... they spread the batter on the big round hot surface with a tiny hoe. Then the egg, same thing. Then they spread some sauces on (don't know what they are, I just eat them) with PAINTBRUSHES fromt he hardware store. Yes, they are totally from the hardware store, big flat wide paintbrushes.

That cement spreader - actually I've seen that type of thing used on grills in the US, to squash down grilled cheese or burgers. The difference is probably that in the US some company discovered they could cash in on making identical tools but for "food only", and they have a deal with the hardware store & they change the labels out back, then charge more because now it says "Squash-omatic-3000" on it (name courtesy of spooky).

oh god my head hurts from thinking so much.
I am not rich.  :L
