Did, and still do. I've unknowingly have had some for lunch. Found out late it was Rover stew.

Eaten dog, cat, rat, snake, bird, scorpion, tiger, giraffe, sea slugs, silk works, various bits and organs of more species than I care to count and I have even eaten stuff that to me is so vile, I won't even mention it.

'Did' is past-tense.   So, the answer to your question is yes, the Chinese people by and large did eat dog meat.

You may be interested to know it is still done today, not just in China, but in many countries.

 

I once happened to be walking by local restaurant that specialized in dog. The cook was dragging a dog back to the kitchen, had a rope around it's neck. I'll never forget how scared that dog looked/acted. It knew it was about to get whacked! I thought that was amazing that it knew. Perhaps other animal species are more sentient than we usually give them credit for.

sure. and dog's meat are quite good

I tried once, on the purpose
spotted it in small restaurant near Xiaoshan (Zhejiang), and asked my host if I can try

just meat

 

this one was probably smoked, because meat was quite dry, and dark
we ate it with the salt (mixed with some spices)

They still eat dogs. In Jixian, Tianjin, dog is very popular dish.

 

I ate it once last year. It looks and tastes similar as beef or venison. Chinese with me at the table, they told me about dog after my third try. I felt like am lab mice...bastardi

They did and still do, it is considered a delicacy in Guangxi and Guangdong.

 

However, they breed a particular type of dog for food, it isn't just a case of 'grab a poodle shave it, spit it and eat it'.

 

Personally that is one animal too far for me and in my time I've eaten most things, but I draw the line at dogs and monkeys. (No I haven't seen monkeys being served in China, that was somewhere else.)

Don't be so shocked, I am pretty sure that you have done so without your knowledge.

 

Have you ever tried this small grilled barbecue stick sold in the street......if you have eaten one of those, there is a small chance that you got to eat dog meat too. If you're lucky enough to have avoided dog meat....well, cat meat is also used sometimes.

Yes, unfortunately they do. they should eat more rats, There is a flood of them in China.

 One night in Guilin I saw steel crates full of puppies being loaded on a cycle truck. the pup were so crammed in , they could not stand, The men were pushing steel rods through the cages to pick them up, puppies were just screaming. I asked my Gf several times about this , never got an answer. I knew where the puppies were headed. I later saw pictures of puppies in these type crate for meat. they were not just the street type dogs I see, but a mix of long and short haired dogs. i am very much against eating companion animals. They are smart and evolved to live and help us, not to be eaten. Dogs and cats were never domesticated, they evolved to live with us as partners.

In Jilin province we saw quite a few dog-meat restaurants. It seems to be a Korean dish but not only the ethnic Koreans ate dog meat but also many Chinese enjoyed these places.

Not all Chinese enjoy eating dogs, and many people love dogs the way the westerners do. Chinese in the South do in colder days believed it is good for health, and people in the North do by the influence of the Koreans.

 

FYI. Almost every Korean eats dog meat I believe.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
