I love eating local food anytime I travel. Beijing has been no exception. Some of the food I've eaten here reminds me of Chinese food I've eaten in the States: meat, veggies, rice. Some is a little different.
Last night we went to a restaurant called Hot Pot where we cooked our own soup right at our seats.
Here Sarah adds ingredients to her soup. Each person selected a base for their soup - I had curry - and then added ingredients.
Vegetables, noodles, tofu, an egg, a gelatinous square of duck's blood, and some "fatty beef" were all available for cooking. We ate the noodles and other ingredients with chops sticks after dipping them into a sesame seed sauce. Yum!
