tastes like chicken.....not!

I was invited down to Chinatown yesterday to have lunch with my little SeaKyung(my foreign exchange daughter who lived with me for 2 years on and off while she was in high school...hmmm I should blog that story) and her Chinese boyfriend who is from Beijing. They thought it would be nice to have a real authentic meal like Gregory eats and Eric just RAVED about the food in Beijing when he came back from a visit with Greg...so I said, " OK".

All food was orderd by Bean( the boyfriend)
All food looked interesting...
All food was good....

We had soup that tasted like grits.....very good . I would eat it again
rice cooked in leaves...good
shrimp wrapped in rice wrapper....ok
beef wrapped in rice wrapper....better....I think it was the wrap part that was not so good...too wet/sticky
babecued pork in a roll......VERY good would have every day
potatoe puffs....very very good
and something that looked like chicken wings.

Keep in mind that they had NO forks....just chopsticks....
I try to pick up the wings with my chopsticks.
get it halfway at my plate and it falls in to my tea....
finally....after a half a dozen times I get it to my mouth and start to chew.....

Just so you know.

Chicken FEET do not taste like Chicken......
not now.. not yesterday... not EVER!!!!

I guess you can take the girl out of West Virginia but even the West Virginian doesn't do FEET
*ugh*
