We continue our tour of my culinary (mis)adventure(s) in China . . .
Sea snails seemed particularly popular in Beijing's wet market. I'm told they're even tastier than escargot.
Summer fruit was a major hit; I had my first waxberries in Shanghai. Think plum meets strawberry meets pleasantly strange fibrous texture.
Preserved and packaged seafood is an increasingly popular delicacy. Here is a very expensive box of preserved abalone. It doesn't have much flavor, but it's awfully chewy. . .
