I mentioned in my last post the astonishing variety of foods in China. Someone told me a legend that explains why the Chinese have such a huge assortment of food options. An ancient Chinese emperor apparently gathered the chefs in the kingdom and asked them to make him meals for 1000 days. The only catch was that they couldn’t repeat any of the dishes if they wanted to stay alive! This greatly taxed their creativity and resulted in the great range of culinary options.
I typically am pretty adventurous with food and had a great time sampling different foods in China. But even I have limits! Here are some of the foods I opted to pass on 🙂
