EAT EAT EAT and CHAT CHAT CHAT. What we had in one day.
▴ The notorious traditional Beijing breakfast drink: Douzhi (made of tofu residue, tastes like rotten cabbage or sewage water…)
▴ My soul food meat bun is back again. Chili oil is an essential condiment for maximizing the taste,
▴ Leek and shrimp is another popular filling
▴ Oh…what a temptation…包子对我的诱惑力应该是致命的了。。。
▴ Here the lunch starts.
▴ Super local eats.
▴ Japanese Tofu stir-fry…I never get a chance to learn why this type of silky tube-shaped tofu get its name – The Japanese Tofu. What’s so Japanese about it?
▴ Our dinner. The undistinguishable stuff is fish.
The highlight is not about the food we had but the conversation and love we shared sitting by the dinning table. Food plays a central role to unit people together. Especially good food.
A six hours long chat with XiaoQiang. Through his stories, I gained a lot of life advice, a few awesome gifts and several Russian illustration books to read on. I got so touched by the relationship we have. Their home is my home in Beijing. That’s how I feel.
