It’s handy when your best friend is Chinese, because then she can guide you through the weird and wonderful dishes. I’m a picky eater in the sense I’m limited by my food allergies, but nothing really grosses me out (except rice pudding, but that’s a different story altogether).

More shrimp dumplings:
Chicken feet in Chinese sauce (these were actually pretty good):
Dessert (steamed tofu with ginger syrup):
My favourite dish was duck tongues with vermicelli, but I didn’t get a photo of them.
