yoshiko17 Super delicious ginormous #friedsesameball from #qiaojiangnan. Not sure I've ever had one before with a black #sesame filling...and walnut bits! First time at #俏江南 but would not really recommend the other dishes we tried.... #Beijing #pfpchina2015 2d

yoshiko17 Somehow my bowl of #fen had 3x the amount of #ricenoodles as everyone else...couldn't eat it fast enough and it soaked up all the soup. Still good! #fresh #sanxian #三鮮 #fish #beef #chicken #zhufen #煮粉 #yulincuisine #nanning #pfpchina2015 #lastmealinnanning 3d

yoshiko17 #Guangxi is known for its #ricenoodles, aka #fen. This particular dish is served up cold with scallions, cilantro, roasted peanuts and soy sauce. So simple yet so delicious! #Ludaoyangguang is definitely one of the better restaurants in #nanning (yes, I went there two nights in a row), and their cold cut fen, as this dish is called, is especially tasty with the right texture: light and chewy without sticking to your teeth. #nofilter 4d

yoshiko17 Crispy fried duck! A #Guilin specialty here in #Guangxi. It's a much smaller duck than the ones used for #pekingduck. They serve it with a wonderfully tangy #lemon sauce that cuts the grease. The skin was fried to a perfect crisp--better than a lot of Peking duck places! #nanning #ludaoyangguang #綠島陽光 #pfpchina2015 5d

yoshiko17 I succumbed to the allure of the legit #frozen #grassjelly treat...wish me luck. For the record, it was delicious! I hate to say this but possibly better than my fav #meetfresh in #taipei because it's a more manageable size and duh, ice-cream! I would have liked some more #mochi balls though... #taro #taroicecream #sweetpotatomochiballs #shavedice #pfpchina2015 #nanning 6d

yoshiko17 I trekked far and wide to find these #sweetpotatomochiballs! Actually I technically found it by accident because the map made no sense...almost got it two nights in a row but resisted. Not as large as the ones in #Taiwan but still deliciously #chewy, or as we Taiwanese say, #qq. (Qq is way more appetizing than chewy!) I really wanted the legit cold version but went hot to be on the safe side. #nanning #pfpchina2015 #xianyuchuanqi #仙芋傳奇 #mallsnacks 1w

yoshiko17 Bubbles that stick to the side of the cup indicate an aged, high quality #tea, according to the deputy chief/mayor of #Jingxiu in #Guangxi. This particular tea was made by frying up wild tea leaves and then dried on the kitchen ceiling beams over decades, repeatedly smoked from cooking and drying out through the weather changes. Basically #priceless and impossible to buy--he had to drink with a buddy from the #Yao ethnic minority group to get a bag as a gift. The Yao would make these leaves for the next generation since they say it cures many things, from cutaneous infections when applied topically to an upset stomach when ingested. It tasted smoky at first but slightly sweeter with each batch (a little goes a long way!). #pfpchina2015 1w

yoshiko17 Fresh #longan from the mountains of #Jingxiu in #Guangxi province. This autonomous county is home to the #Yao ethnic minority group, and one of the villagers who started the village preschool offered these to us in her home. #fruit #sweet #pfpchina2015 #nofilter 1w

yoshiko17 Old school #Chinese #popsicles! Supposedly an accidental discovery back in the day when a worker accidentally put in 30% less milk for a batch of #icecream. Delicious, sweet frozen treat with a hint of creaminess (think #creamsoda but less cloying) on a hot summer day in #Beijing. Only 2 rmb a pop! #pfpchina2015 #binggun #laozhongjie #798artdistrict 2w

yoshiko17 The #Chinese version of #Taiwanese minced pork over rice at #食上坊 down the street from #bnu. Not terribly authentic--meat wasn't fatty enough, flavor slightly off--but still tasty! All for less than $3 USD. #luroufan #shishangfang #pfpchina2015 2w

yoshiko17 Meat #skewers galore...the safe version for prissy western stomachs, aka not of the street variety. #Xinjiang #beijing #lamb #lambskewers #bnu Being taken around means not knowing the name of this place.... It's down the street from #beijingnormaluniversity and these super cute xinjiang mei meis would come in and greet us and tell us they were going to put on shows for us (they really just sang one old school c-Pop song for us....) #pfpchina2015 2w

yoshiko17 That #sear...otherwise the #steak is just decent but not awesome. That's two 20 oz too, so small! #striphouse #nystrip #boneinribeye #steaknights 2w
  •   p.dubbbs You thought the steak was small? @lou_duree and I shared the 20oz bone in ribeye too and thought it was perfect for two. 2w
  •   yoshiko17 @p.dubbbs it didn't look like 20oz to me but I guess that's pre cooked and jncl bone. But look how small it is! That's two steaks! Each steak was maybe like 5 or 6 pieces...I feel like the 18oz I got last time to cook at home was waaaay bigger. And I think bone in too...... 2w
  •   p.dubbbs Go to mwells in LIC. They do this cote de beuf that's $160, but should feed four, with sides and all. 2w
