Some Dian Xing in Jiading, Shanghai

POST #    1640

While the first meal we had in China was some homemade won tons, the first meal we had out was at lunch at a restaurant where we ordered a bunch of small dishes. To order these, there wasn't much of a menu, but you would walk up to a table covered with food and order what you wanted.

Pictured are some sort of glutinous pumpkin item that tasted somewhat like pumpkin, smelly tofu that didn't smell that bad until you got it right to your nose, salted duck egg with mayo (yes, strange), fish, and some sort of wine in the last picture.

Looks Good. And the wine looks like it is being poured from a Jenaer Mikado Teapot. It just stuck out to me when you said it was wine. Was it infused in any way?

i don't think i've ever had tzoh (stinky) tofu. i never can bring myself to put something that smells that bad in my mouth. i wonder how they make it so stinky? i know some people swear by it.
