Still hungry after lunch so we ordered some noodles. They came in a fancy pot. 5Y
Spicy noodles and bak choi from a Muslim restaurant in Chengde. 7Y
Feeling peckish, Thinnking of "Jiao-zi," which are about the size of an egg or so, Mingyu orders ten fist-sized "Bao-zi." Language lesson learned. We at them all. 1Y a piece!
He likes the lamb skewers.
Tomato and egg Jiao-zi
Not filled up by the dumplings, I get a giant yam on the street. Cost one dollar and was not too far from the size of my head. I ate it all.
We passed through Chengde, a city famous for its almond milk. Actually, it's not all that great. Tatses a little chemically, like it's made from a powder. Still, sweet and cool and somewhat creamy and rather refreshing and not animal-based. 12 bucks for a case of 24.
Beans and ginger and other hot stuff! This dish would have knocked my socks off, had I been wearing any.
My first meal in Beijing: cold noodles in a Sichuan garlic sauce with julienned veggies and crushed peanuts. That, a pumpkin donut, and a big cup of soy milk. $3.
