The food people eat is different everywhere in the world. Some people may think other cultures’ food is disgusting. Others are willing to try anything they come across. Here is a list of crazy foods to try in China.
Century Eggs (Pidan)
Century eggs are a Chinese delicacy originating from the Ming Dynasty, and they take seven weeks to five months to make. They are soaked in a saline solution made of clay or ashes, black tea, lime and salt. The yolk turns dark green and is creamy, while the white transforms into a dark-colored jelly texture. They do taste good, as long as you can get past the pungent smell.
They are usually served as a snack with alcoholic beverages, or as a main dish in several regions of China. They can be deep fried, then stewed and simmered in a sauce flavored with black fermented beans, bean paste and sugar. They can also be simmered with soy sauce, Sichuanese peppercorn, clove, garlic, star anise, cinnamon and chili flakes.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
