Starting with China:
Everything i ate at Mr & Mrs Bund
|Yak Milk Drinking Yoghurt|
|I couldn't go to China without drinking bucket loads of tea. This was my favourite teapot and pu'er my favourite leaf tea. I am currently addicted to ginger tea!|
|My favourite dish in China. Yunnan flat rice noodles with mixed vegetables and chilli. From Naxi Snacks 88 in Lijiang. Coincidentally this restaurant was the best of the trip - local food at local prices - $7 for 4 dishes and drinks.|
|Best breakfast! Yunnan rice noodles with vegetable pickle and chilli.|
|Best street snack - Baba. In various forms - savoury with an egg cracked on top or sweet with rose jam and red bean paste.|
|Best (and cheapest) lunch. From Xizhou market. Cold rice and yellow bean noodles with peanuts, chilli, shallots, bean sprouts and a delicious tangy dressing|
|I wish i could make: fresh rice noodles!|
|Egg fried rice and vegetable jiaozi from Din Tai Fung|
|This is KiBa - cherry and banana juice. Sounds gross but was delicious! Tasted like a Nudie. Germany had so many more juices on offer than we have in Australia.|
|So i never thought i'd be posting a picture of something from McDonald's here after not eating McDonald's food for about 10 years but in Germany they have a veggie burger for 1.99 euro and it isn't too bad.|
|Mmmm Gluhwein. The perfect antidote to a -20 degree day!|
|Leipziger Lerche. These delicious little tarts were filled with cherry jam and almond paste. Delicious!|
Overall it was a great trip and i wish i had taken more photos! Other delicious food included ma po tofu, fish fragrant eggplant (it does not contain fish), milk tea bubble cups, hot pretzels, mezzomix - coke & fanta combined, fresh tomato soup with homemade bread and i'm sure i'm missing some things!
Anyway now it's back to reality and hopefully a bit more cooking!
