* Pigs Blood
* Fried Bee Larva
* Pig Liver
* Whole Fried fish - eat them in one bite
* Stinky Tofu
* Deer meat - the rump roast sliced very thin and cooked in front of us at the Korean BBQ. It was pretty chewy
* Whole pig leg - We only ate the pieces of meat inside, the chinese only like the thick layers of fat and think it is odd that we don't eat that. They say it will make you strong
* Raw Horse Meat - At a sushi restaurant, Liz wouldn't eat it because she said it was from a miniature pony
* Ham Egg and Cheease sandwich is our normal breakfast as the Time Coffee restaurant...and a plate of bacon
* Pig Kidney
* Gooose Liver
* Tuna Salad Sushi - One of Liz's favorites
* Tofu - at almost every meal and it is one of our favorite dishes
* Bitter melon - Not overly tasty and is esasily mistaken for peppers, it's a big surprise when you get the taste in your mouth and you think it should be a pepper
* Street Food in Qing Xi - Every night this one area becomes filled with these carts of food. We went to this one cart that had a grill and a table full of raw meat and had them grill some chicken legs and wings. They also put an eggplant on the grill for Liz. Then we went to another stand where you get a basket and put the type of noodles we wanted and then anything else you want them to put into your soup. We had quail eggs, tofu, seaweed, green onions and dumplings in ours. A two foot high table was set up for us just outside of the noodles area and we ate right there. It was delicious and something we will do again.
* Snake Liquor
* Pigs Ear
* Razor Clams
* Chicken Testicles...when Mike told me what they were, I said "NO WAY these suckers are bigger than any human beings"...but they really were chicken balls...They weren't too bad and something that I would eat again
* Leopard - When we were told we would be eating Baozi, we thought the translation was lion, but it wound up being a soup that had leopard in it. It was extremely good and was apparently a leopard that was hunted from the wild.
* Pigeon - we ate pigeon while in Chengdu and then we had it again at a restaurant near Qing Xi that specializes in pigeon. It was very good and much meatier than you would think. We wore plastic gloves to eat them, just so we didn't sticky hands.
* Beaver - this was at the same place that we had the leopard and it was one of the best dishes of the night.
