Unconventional chinese food

Unconventional chinese food in China? This is a wrong sentence by definition because Chinese people would eat anything without hesitation! Seriously, they would eat everything! 😯

Hot pot is very popular in China. It is specially fun to eat with friends in cold days.


few appetizers


some conventional ingredients: shrimp balls, frozen tofu, dry bean “paper” and fish balls in bamboo


Da da da da!!! the “conventional ingredient”: loaches


I couldn’t do it! My friend finished it all by herself.


Yesterday we drove 1.5 hours to eat at a restaurant that is constructed above the lake that they breed crabs. Look what we had



do you know how to eat it? suck it! 😯

In addition to eating-out a lot, I shopped even more. πŸ˜† Like my red boots? I love it! πŸ˜€


Less than a week until I go back. 😦

  1. You and your shopping habits, I love it! I wish I could go shopping as much as you do. Those red boots look great on you, and I love that “relaxed” picture of you on the couch, you look so in the moment and …well..relaxed!

    The fish balls in bamboo sound very interesting. I would love to take a trip with you and eat some of these foods. While they are very different from what we eat here, I love the adventure of eating new and unusual foods.

  2. Looks like an interesting culinary experience, for sure. I’m a little wary of any food that still looks like…animals, so I’m not sure I could have eaten some of that seafood. πŸ™‚

    Love the new red boots! Now you’ll be all ready for snow! πŸ™‚

  3. I’m so glad you’re having so much fun! Oooh, so many new foods to me, I love seeing new dishes like this! Your new boots are adorable, Coco!

    I absolutely LOVE your posts because you’re so enthusiastic and have so much fun :). I also think its because of the Korean in me; the food, even though it’s Chinese, seems absolutely DELICIOUS.
    Have fun in China :))

    I’ve never seen loaches before in hot pot O: Did you try any at all? I’d imagine that it tastes like eel.

    Happy (late) new year, btw. πŸ™‚

    The loach … Eek! 😯 I couldn’t have eaten it either. I’m also not a big fan of eel. When my dad catches eel (he loves fishing), he smokes them or pickles them in jelly. Gah.

  10. Love Love Love the boots!
