I just came back from a couple of days in Beijing, and what would a trip to Beijing be without some local delicacies. Alas, there are not weird dishes here, just nice simple meals which were very delicious.
Firstly we had jellyfish, and salted pork with yellow beans (though these are obviously not yellow).
Following that, we had (and I've forgotten the chinese name) "Four Happy Balls", well, that’s the direct translation. These were pork meat balls the size of tennis balls. Delicious.
Lastly, we struggled through a steamed fish. The fish was so tender that even though my colleague and I were already full, we ate every last morsel.
