China has to have the biggest variety of food in all the world, there´s a saying in China: We eat everything with legs except Chairs and Tables. And that’s probably not far from the truth.
I eat everything, but for obvious reason will I not post photos of dogs in the market.
Unfurtnetly so have I also had Shark Fin soup, but to my defence so was that a big mistake. I ordered a 6-course meal in a fancy restaurant on new years eve, and the shark fin soup was one of the courses.
I absolutely don’t support eating Shark Fin soup. It´s fu**ing disgusting and horrible what the humankind is doing there.
I did also try FUGU while I was in Japan.
Here´s just a short list of some of the strange and less appetizing things you can eat while you’re visiting China.
1. Chilly Rabbit Head.
Actually pretty normal in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.. 4/10. Not much meat on the head and extremely greasy.
2. Some Kind of bugs
Dunhuang, Gansu Province. 4/10 crunchy.
Lanzhou, Gansu Province. 1/10. Not sure of the chef was jokeing with me or not, but it tasted disgusting.
4. Duck Stomach.
Shenzhen. Guangdong Province. 7/10. Not bad, Not bad at all.
5. Goat Head Soup.
Kashgar, Xinjiang Province. 2/10 Horrible.
6. Thousand Year Old Egg.
Beijing. 3/10 Strange salty jelly tasting.
7. Shark Fin soup.
Hong Kong, 0/10. Absolutely disgusting, we are the humans doing this.
8. Chicken Feet
1/10, Why just why. Chicken feets are available all over China in all types of food, deep fried, boiled, bbq and even as candy.
9. Pig Brain.
Beijing, 1/10. Just Disgusting.
10. Beijing Night Market.
One of the easier places to try some strange food is the Night Market, just north of Wangfujing Road in Beijing.
Here is there numerous street food stalls catering directly to tourists, both locals and foreign with strange street food snack.
11. Strange flavour Potato Chips.
Even the potato chips in China got strange taste, what about some blubbery taste, lime taste, or what about some hot and sour fish taste chips?
