Beef Jerky Tire Fix

Oct 12 2014

Posted by:

On almost every street in China, you may find a  place to fix whatever is broke. This street was no exception. It took 3-4 different shops but we finally ended up at the guy who shoves stuff in flat tires. My buddy had rolled over some inch long hunks of metal that ended up working their way into his rear tire. The solution was to pull them out and jam in a longer piece of metal with these goopy rubber jerky sticks. They looked delicious but I wouldn’t recommend eating them. LOL!!!

Enjoy

No Banana for You

Oct 04 2014

Posted by:

Travellers from Thailand always want the damn chocolate banana crepes. These were much better. All curry, greasy, eggy goodness. What more could you want, besides a camera operator that knows how to use the manual focus.

Kengtung was our first stop on our overland travel from Chiangmai in Thailand to Mongla in Special Region 4.

Delicious Crispy Buns

Mar 30 2013

Posted by:

Oh god. Thinking about these buns is enough reason to go live in the middle of nowhere. This was perhaps the dirtiest city I’ve been in recent memory. Tianmen in the month of February is disgusting. A slow, piercing cold follows you everywhere. I did, however get the best haircut I’ve ever received and ate these buns. These buns are far and away the best buns I’ve ever had. Nothing can compare. They were so crisp on the outside and the inside, fully cooked with a moist but flaky interior that must be due to the lard. I am told lard is in them. Lard is something we are programmed to hate in NA but it is simply more delicious butter. We need to stop the madness. We must accept lard into our lives but first butter. Non-hydrogenated margarine is a travesty.

Please imagine how delicious these are with me. It’s all I have left. Also, note the fancy hand-work. This guy is a bun making god. I was really drunk having just left my friend’s wedding (congratulations!) and at the end of the night, informed the bun maker that I would never see him again and that I loved him. He paid me no mind at all. It only makes me love him more.

Jianbing is the Right Thing…

Jun 20 2012

Posted by:

…to eat for breakfast. Or any time of the day really. It’s just a delicious snack that the whole family will enjoy. Here we have a very intense conversation in Chinese. Roughly goes like this: “Do you want sauce?” “Want” “Hot?” “Want. Want this. Want this. Don’t want this.” “Four yuan.” A really rare and exciting chance to peep in on a proper conversation.

Oh and welcome back the return to HD!!!! That’s 720  progressively scanning lines of jianbing, people. Respect!

Who Tiao? Youtiao!

Jun 11 2012

Posted by:

Oh yeah. Don’t you just want to sink your teeth into some solidly oily strips of oily dough deep fried in oily oil?

Here we see some delightful youtiao. The breakfast bread stick commonly served with congee. The name means oil strip because of the greasy stains they leave in the toilet bowl.

A Lesson in Uighur BBQ

Apr 26 2012

Posted by:

The ancient art of barbecue is alive and well all over the world. This statement is rather unnecessary.

This succulent lamb is unnecessarily tasty. Imagine biting into a salty block of melt in your mouth fat exploding lamby flavour into your mouth. Now imagine that sensation wrapped in a flat bread that absorbs and enhances that salty fat flavour. Plus, it’s in a plastic bag so your hands don’t get all greasy!

Uighur people are a minority in China. They are Turkic and responsible for hash and the best food in China.

Oh yeah…and that next VMH is still on the way…

Noodle Carving

And here we can see the ancient art of carving noodles from a block of dough. Noodles are delicious in China. Possibly more delicious than in Italy. Take that, Berlusconi!

These dumplings were delicious. The lady was nervous. I was not impervious, to feeling scandalous.
