While I was in China, I ate as much as I possibly could. There are so many delicious dishes that if I wasn’t sitting down for a meal, I was picking up a snack from a street vendor hoping that I’d walk it all off by the end of the trip. 🙂
One of the dishes that I discovered while in Beijing was 老醋花生 lǎo cù huāshēng, or peanuts soaked in vinegar. I wasn’t particularly hungry on the day this dish was brought out to our table, but my friend insisted that I try them, so I did. And then I ate almost the entire plate. They were that delicious.
Upon returning to the US, I tried to find restaurants that served 老醋花生, but didn’t have much luck so that same friend suggested that I just make them myself at home. I laughed and rolled my eyes at myself, the answer had been so obvious!
So without any further ado, I present to you one of my favorite snacks from my trip to Beijing!
What about you? Have you discovered any awesome dishes while on your travels? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
