Random food 7-3 莲白炒肉

Random Chinese food Looks: 2Smell: 2 Spiciness: 4Satisfaction Factor: 4 Overall: Once more Price TAG: 10 RMB I am here in China already 4 months…And after that time you simply get used to different standard…like the take away food. It is not packed and delivered in separate boxes full of advertisements…You get always the same paper cup everywhere you go and half of the sauce will leak before you get home. Not to mention they put even the soup into…

Random Food once in the lifetime

Random Chinese food Looks: 2Smell: 2 Spiciness: 5Satisfaction Factor: 2 Overall: No Price TAG: 12 RMB Once after work, I was really hungry and searching for some fast food to fill me up. Flor took me to one of her favorite food stalls or a local Chinese fast food – Lai de quai. You can get this fried meat or vegetable on sticks in there, or just a simple soup. Or…this famous spicy noodles. For just 4 RMB you can…

Qijiang – Sanhui trip

Chongqing to Qijiang to Sanhui For the Sweeping tomb Holiday here in china, people are gathering with their relatives at the tombs of their ancestors to pay them respect. Lucky me, as I encountered yet another friend on Couchsurfing which was eager to share this spiritual experience with some foreigners. Kelly and me exchanged QQ numbers and eventually agreed on a date to join her and her family in not-closely specified rural area of Chongqing province, Qijiang municipality for the…

Random Food Finger-point 我想这是一个鸭腿

Chinese Food Finger-point Alfa Looks: 4Smell: 5Spiciness: 2Satisfaction Factor: 7 Overall:  Good Price TAG: 13 RMB I guess it was a Duck leg. Honestly when I came into the restaurant i was totally definitelly decided to go for my usual – Jiao zi(饺子). But when i marched inside the restaurant, I saw a guy sitting over there at the first table eating something reminding me a full-fledged dish. I really miss the European style of serving meal.  Chinese dining style…

Baguette is better than big nose

Baguette comes from France Last week I had the opportunity to enjoy a good diet. Plane bread. Crackers. A lot of water, just warm, not hot nor cold. Plain rice with rice and sprinkled with some more rice. As I was suffering with gastroenteritis. Lovely little intestine issue that arisen probably from poorly grilled shaokao one evening. I think I know exactly how it happened. George called me out for a beer, he had a new camera to show me…well…

Random Food 3-4 土豆肉丝炒饭

Random Chinese food Looks: 4Smell: 3 Spiciness: 0Satisfaction Factor: 6 Overall:  Good Price TAG: 9 RMB Although it is just plain rice with no spices, this food can surprisingly fill you up well. Even if it does not look like, it is quite oily and all the vegetables, not plentiful, are stirred in oil. It is hard to find here in Chongqing any food that would contain no or just a little bit of oil. Chinese literally bath the food…

Random Food 2-4 鱼香肉丝套饭

Random Chinese food Looks: 2Smell: 4Spiciness: 1Satisfaction Factor: 5 Overall:  Ahmm… Price TAG: 10 RMB Sour, too much leek and vinegar makes the taste very characteristic. Looks like someone already had it and recycled it…though the actual taste is pretty good and your stomach can rest from spiciness. Go for it in any restaurant and you will not make a mistake with filling your belly but don’t expect to be happy about it. More Random Food…

Chinese Internet is simply lovable

Chinese Internet… …I love it. Because it makes me feel like I am back in 90’s. Like I am young again. It takes me back in time. Beat me up, the Chinese Internet is practically a time machine. The only think it misses is the sound of dial-up modem while connecting. Apart from that it behaves pretty much the same.  Especially in times when I have to prepare a class really fast. That class is about to begin in 35…

Random Foood 4-7 泡椒腰花炒河粉

Random Chinese food Looks: 4Smell: 5 Spiciness: 2Satisfaction Factor: 5 Overall:  GoodPrice TAG: 11 RMB Wide noodles with ginger and vegetables mixed with pork kidney slices. I have never been fan of intestines. This is actually the best choice with intestines so far. The pork kidney is little gummy and you have to chew more, but those noodles are great. In addition you will not burn your mouth. In Sichuan and Chongqing is harder to find such food. Honestly I…

Random Food 2-8 泡椒牛肉丝套饭

Random Chinese food Looks: 5Smell: 5Spiciness: 5Satisfaction Factor: 6 Overall:  Very Good Price TAG: 11 RMB Sliced beeeeeef with ginger, celery, and spicy peppers. It looks innocent and tasty (it actually is tasty 🙂 but prepare for a mouth burning experience. And not to forget also tongue burning experience…I had to ask for kuai zi – chopsticks, cause the lady was assuming this white boy doesn’t know how to use them. WRONG lady! – she was probably just being nice,…
