A Hot Pot Specialty......


I think...... some of the restaurants are way ahead of you.

But we are talking hotpot restaurants so we are never sure because everything looks and tastes the same after 5 minutes on the boil.

The time to get nervous is when they have ''meat'' on the menu.

HAHA! Some of those photos are hilarious!

Yeah, the Cicadas are really noisy in China in the summer, I remember them well.

Quote "I heard that cicadas are full of well digastable protein. Like water beetles.
Not that I am up to give any hints..."

Yes, anything that lives, breathes, moves, grows, looks at you funny, or is just a weird color, will get EATEN in China :)  (I'm sure you guys could find digesable protein in a housebrick of you tried hard enough!)

Joking! Joking! You guys have got great food also! :)

I go to these restaurants and shuffle things around my bowl with my chopsticks. If I can make enough of a mess in my bowl then a waitress will come and give me a clean bowl.

The beer is good though.

My favourite Chinese restaurant in Chengdu is a vegetarian restarant. The food is visually attractive, beatifully presented and looks and tastes just like meat without the bones and the eyes and the feet and the beaks etc.
