I love Chinese food. As in Western Chinese food. You know, like, baked pork balls. Or fried noodles. Or juicy duck. But when we went to Shenzhen a couple of weeks ago, I… let’s just say I’m not used to eat real Chinese cuisine. Asian people seem to like cartilages in their meat, feet on their plates and bones in their fish. And it’s hard to appreciate these delicacies when you’re truly hungry.
So here’s a short list of things we ate (or tried to eat) in China: Spicy bullfrog, green tea roast chicken, shrimps, stir-fried cabbage, burgers, tofu and thousand-year-old eggs, steak, frog legs, boiled chicken in chili sauce, sweets, duck tongue, tea tree mushrooms, fried eggs oysters, a so-called “flame of love”, chicken feet, lobster, spring rolls and matcha mochi.
Truth is, while most of that food was absolutely amazing, sometimes we had to head to McDonald’s afterwards, because we just couldn’t still our hunger with cartilaginous meat and bony fish. But hey: Eating at McDonald’s is not the worst thing you can do, when you visit another country, is it? At least now we know how a Chinese Snoopy burger tastes like. In fact good.
