Freaky food

September 20th, 2007

They eat a lot of things and parts of things here that we usually do not in the U.S.  They’re all like “so you like chicken?  Here’s some chicken for you!” and it comes out mostly like skin and the spine and the head and stuff.  The beef’s usually all gristly and fatty.  Boy, they sure think Americans love beef a lot.

They’ll eat pretty much any part of a pig.  And oh yeah, they like to see the dead animal before they eat it.  On the plus side, tofu is cheap (a big block for about 1 kuai…$0.13 or so…would probably cost $2-3 in the U.S.) and plentiful.  But then sometimes you get tofu and it’s seeped in the most pungent, overwhelming chili ever.  I’ve tasted kinds of spicy here that I did not previously know to exist.

There’s a place just outside the gates of the school that’s great because you can look at all the ingredients and choose exactly what you want and how much you want.  One of the other foreign teachers also brings them some canola oil to use with our meals instead of the lard.  Beyond that…you can go downtown and get KFC, Pizza Hut, “Pizza Fun”, or Dicos (which is kind of like KFC except it’s native…you can get chicken sandwiches, pop, ice cream sundaes, fries…all that good stuff).

I can also cook up a storm in my apartment with my rice cooker and hot plate.  I buy out the grocery store for chicken breast and freeze a bunch of it.

    Hey mike, I’ve been reading your law school notes and I was wondering why you quit going? The notes are helping me out quite a bit so far and it looks like you were doing excellent. Anyway thanks for leaving them up so i can go over them.
