Chengdu Trip #4 - Food Pics

Chinese people like to eat so I've been taking pictures of food and food related stuff...

Curry Chicken at a department store cafe. Chinese people don't like white meat so it was mostly thigh meat with a lot of bones. Not too good. The reddish brown stuff at the lower left is the ubiquitous "Szechuan" preserved vegetable that comes with every meal and is available worldwide. I get mine at 99 Ranch Market in Irvine.

Packaged chicken feet... yum, not!

More spicy hot pot ingredients: pig blood cake, beef, and Japanese soft tofu (very weird texture). The dipping sauce was a bowl of oil in which you add minced garlic and cilantro. This is quite different from what I'm used to and made the meal very greasy.

Sushi cart in Wenshu Temple. Since Chengdu is 1000 miles from the ocean, you gotta wonder if the seafood is fresh.

Bowl of spicy rice noodles with pig intestines (RMB4.5)

Liver... not sure from which animal

Strange mushroom and other fungi


"Fresh" seafood... one of the fish is dead and floating upside-down

Dinner on HKG-LAX Cathay flight: tilapia

Breakfast on HKG-LAX flight: pork with rice rolls (they were out of the omelet by the time they got to the back of the bus)
