Sichuan Dining

They brought this dish out during one of the business dinners I attended in Chengdu earlier this month. There were red peppers, green peppers, ginger, and green onion. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to eat for this dish... so I didn't. The green stuff at the back was kind of like mochi and it was pretty good.

Array of drinks at the same dinner. Left to right: red wine, some juice like drink, and baijiu (白酒). The baijiu they poured was about 52% alcohol... it tasted horrible.

Ladies making wontons at the shop downstairs from my friend's apartment. I ordered a medium this time and still it was >20 wontons for ¥5. The cheap homey food was much better than the expensive restaurant food for me.
