Ah, I miss China. Not the spitting EVERYWHERE part... but definitely the amazing food. Those ma xiao look killer good. I'll have to keep an eye out for them on my next visit. Fabulous post!


Gui Jie rocks - so pretty!! And I can't believe you ate the scorpions...

Thank you so much, Sharon! The ma xiao are awesome, especially if you're a crawfish fan. (And YES - what is up with the spitting?!!)

Love your Tsukiji post! I wish we were going to Japan this trip...

Ling! Logan accounted for all of them... except one. I can't say it was my favorite thing ever, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I'd feared. I still prefer ant eggs. :-)


Hey this is Paul from Paul's Travel Pics. Great blog! You're a brave dude for downing that whole platter of Ma Xiao ... that's certainly more difficult that any scorpion or grasshopper!

Those little cubes of hawthorn jelly is probably Jingao (金糕), which are cubes of hawthorn with Guihua sauce, though usually without the peanuts.

Hi, Paul - thank you, and thanks for your terrifically helpful blog!

How funny that you say that about the crawfish - we LOVE crawfish and eat a fair amount of them here in the southern US!
