    So after living here now for 2 plus years I’ve been exposed to a lot of different foods and even some of my tastes have changed. So I thought I’d share some pictures I’ve taken of food.

    Chef LupLup at her finest! A typical meal especially when I’m the one cooking. Eggs and tomatoes and then a tofu dish in brown sauce and of course a bowl of rice!

    Here in WenShan the rice noodles are amazing and amazingly cheap! This rather large bowl (which includes meat, mushrooms, cabbage, and some other veggies) is six Chinese dollars or less than one US dollar! It’s usually pretty tough to finish the whole bowl without feeling stuffed to the brim. It’s made fresh right in front of you and makes it pretty hard to want to cook at home when you know that this is an alternate option!

    Here are some dishes from when I was in TianJin. They include things like bamboo shoots, white turnips, and black fungus. In TianJin every dish was a little sweet. Every area in China tends to have a little bit different flavor. Kind of like how in the south everything has a fried butter flavor or everything at my cousin’s house has a bacon flavor. In Kunming or WenShan things are usually salty or spicy and sometimes sour.

    Snacks here are also different. Kids are often seen snacking on chewy spicy oily tofu sticks. In TianJin I was given this honey sugar substance on a stick. It was um….. sweet and very sticky. You are given two sticks so that you can spin it and help to prevent it from slowly dropping down.

    Well if none of those are appealing to you I guess you can always go with the other option….

    Throw your pig in the river.

    I’ll try to throw in more food photos in the future!
