|First street food, in Shangers. I had grilled aubergine, Dave had|
mystery meat on a stick. Lots of bones in the meat but not bad.
Served to us by a guy who looked like he belonged in a film
about Chinese martial arts gangs or something!
|Bike power! Fried noodles on the back of a bike - didn't try|
them but there were a lot of different types to choose from.
|Dave eating a kebab in snack street. Nothing weird. Just a kebab.|
|Dumplings! We ate them for breakfast every day in Beijing.|
These were standard pork ones that we took to eat in a park.
|No idea what this was but it was delicious.|
Potato, meat, crispy tofu coating?
Spicy and amazing, I want more!
|Green tea ice cream oreos...I thought they were mint and was|
very disappointed but I suppose they weren't that bad.
|BOURBONS! What a find! Sadly most of them were eaten|
by the mouse in our hostel room...
|Pot noodles. Nothing special, we are used to them|
in Korea. However, Dave's came with 4 different
sachets of flavour to add! 2 powders, 1 paste and
1 packet of dried veggies etc.
|"Walkers" in China has various categories of crisps.|
These were "Cool & Refreshing" - Lemon Tea Flavour!
Tasted just like lemon tea, which was very odd.
|"Intense & Stimulating"|
Numb & Spicy Hot Pot Flavour. Nothing special.
I think the dude in the corner is famous.
|"Cool & Refreshing"|
Blueberry Flavour! I'm not a fan of blueb's and so
since the flavour was pretty accurate, I gave them a miss.
They were as weird as you'd imagine really.
|The crisps still left us with change so at the very last minute we|
bought this little snack-feast from a vending machine, right before
we boarded the plane. Challenge completed! Less than 1p left!
|Luckily, the train journey we bought the water for|
wasn't one of the long ones, or we would have be
screwed. It was the end of our trip and we decided
to buy the cheapest bottle of water we could find.
It tasted like vodka. We didn't drink it.
|We saw people everywhere drinking these. They looked like|
clay pots with a cloth lid on. It was shockingly expensive and
was just really sweet plain yoghurt. Wish I'd bought a Coco.
Coming up next we have an account, or two, of our trip to Tokyo last month - don't miss it!
