It would not be in my nature not to post about the food I have been eating here! As you can imagine, most meals consist of either rice or noodles with lots of meat and not so much vegetables.
A Chinese banquet meal is served at a large table seating 10-12 people, with a big lazy-susan in the middle. Dish after dish comes out of the kitchen, filling the table. Each individual setting includes a small plate, small bowl and spoon, and chopsticks. It is appropriate to reach your chopsticks into any dish to serve yourself! ;)
Doing my research on traditional Nanjing foods, I have been on the prowl to try as many as I can! Here is what I was able to try:
I was not, however, brave enough to venture to try Duck Blood Soup or Balut (fertilized duck egg).
I look forward to discovering the different cuisines among the many provinces of China!
