Silly Strange Sichuan Foods
There is a Chinese saying, “Shi zai Zhongguo, wei zai Sichuan,” (China is the place for food, but Sichuan is the place for flavor.) (Lonely Planet China Guide). So Sichuan Province is known for its hot and spicy food. It has noodles that will numb your tongue, and “hot-pot”-that is spicy hot and hot temperature hot!
Places like Chengdu have fantastic street food, some of it very unusual. This is a brief collection of pictures of interestingly different, sometimes silly, Sichuan foods. We did not try any of them…maybe another time…?!!
