So who's going to Beijing
 
One of our food wholesalers sent this series of photos of a food court they visited in Beijing in the lead up to the Olympics. Click on the photo to expand it then read what culinary delights you lucky people could be in store for if you visit this popular eatery.

I am afraid much on offer is not to my liking but then we live worlds apart, this gives a total new meaning to "fast food".

EWWWWW!!
We saw a lot of this the other night on Andrew Zimern!! Sometimes I can't watch!! LOL

You eat at these stalls and you are basically working for the local exterminator!

Actually, they're not so bad once you grill them.

Who needs a diet? Just move to Beijing for a couple of months, you'll loose all kinds of weight in a very short time...will power won't even be an issue! :ohmy:

As a business woman in the horticultural field, I was once invited to join a group of other women like me on a tour to China, to give advice and help to Chinese women who were starting their own horticultural businesses.

I had a little boy to take care of at the time, and did not accept the offer.

Ah! It's way out of our league right now but would surely like to visit that part of China one day. We've been watching Samantha Brown during China week and most of those places are beautiful and the food...oh my, it looks absolutely tasty.

I'd go for goats lungs, the rest you wouldn't be able to pay me to eat that stuff. I wouldn't even consider drinking juice that has food coloring made of beatles.

Oh Goodness - you folks are watching the wrong tv shows. Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" is the only way to enjoy the real China as far as food goes. ;) Sam Brown whitewashes everything & Zimmern is just sensationalism. Half the time he cringes at the stuff he's "supposed" to enjoy eating.

If those were the only items to choose from, I would be living on the grilled corn and ginger sauce. Some of the foods didn't look bad until I read what they were. If I had to eat it, I don't think it would be a good idea to ask what it is!

I will be visiting Beijing via my TV (which I will watch on my computer, since I will be on vacation during the Olympics), so fortunately I will have foods more to my liking available!
