Q: Foodie cities in China?

Hey, i'm kinda new here. Was wondering what are some 'foodie cities' with decent travel destination near them in China? I want to spend the last bit of my vacation eating some good food but also see some sights.

haha,, wanna trip out your 'foodie' buddies back home?  Go to the Yang lin (sp?) Dog Festival.  you will have bragging creds over all your compatriots nigh on forever.

of course you will also be mentally scarred for life. hard to believe humans are so cruel, but you can see for yourself first-hand that we* are.

Everyone knows that all Chinese food is 'very delicious' and 'very famous', regardless of the fact that most of it tends to be over-salted, doused in cooking oil when cooked, may contain toxic ingredients and (in some provinces) they use way too much chili pepper.

MSG is the preferred added cooking ingredient (yum yum)

 

Want good Chinese food?

Try Hong Kong and Taiwan as Englteachted suggests if you value your taste-buds and long-term health.

Beijing - there is a convenience store called April Gourmet that has a good range of imported deli products that are both tasty and safe.

Just go to any tier-1 and you will have a vast selection of food from all over China. Still going to eat gutter oil and tons of MSG though, China food tastes great but standards and quality are the bottom of the low. For quality Chinese food hit your local Chinatown or go to HK and Taiwan.

A:Weird jobs you say? China has plenty. The guys who work in bath houses and whose job it is to scrub guys down... that's got to suck.I've seen it. There will be a (usually fat) naked dude lying on a table, and the scrubber who is also near naked goes over him top to bottom with what looks like a scouring glove. They get right in there..lift the nuts, spread the cheeks and everything. God knows why anyone would pay for that but it seems they do. Then there are the eunuchs who became high-ranking public servants back in the day.Nowadays I don't think it's very common for them to be high-ranking, I think most just became wumaos - but a lot of them self castrated themselves to get the job.It must have been a hell of a decision to make...if you decide you'd prefer to be a plumber or rickshaw driver after a couple of years on the job there's no reversing the surgery. The people who stand in front of a shoe or clothing store and clap to attract customers- sometimes they will chant in unison - that's another job I always thought was bizarre. The supermarket staff whose job seems to be to stand in groups of three gossiping and blocking the aisles so you can't go down them, you have to turn around and go down the next aisle that probably has a sale on shampoo or expired tofu that day. The 'English Teachers' who can't communicate with the foreign teachers, or even their students in English but will tell anyone who listens how the foreign speaker is 'wrong'.Their jobs seem to be to unteach whatever English the kids are able to pick up.It's strange, but they do exist. If you're really looking for a great career though I suggest being the worthless lazy offspring of someone with good connections. Being stupid will help your prospects a lot.You'll be given a job with a decent salary, pension etc and all you need to do is play with your phone all day and be you. You'll never be asked to do anything or probably even show up at the office. In fact they'd probably prefer it if you just kept out of the way.      -- Stiggs
