TITLE: GOAT BRAIN AND 黄酒 (YELLOW BOOZE)
LOCATION: UNKNOWN RESTAURANT, XI'AN
MISSION: EAT THE UNEATABLE
DATE: 2009-07-05

Today Nicholas and I tagged along two Japanese friends to a graduation-celebration-dinner-party (something was definitely lost in translation between Chinese/English/Japanese, but whatever). When we got there this really old Japanese guy (probably rich) and his super hot (and young) Chinese girlfriend were throwing a big party ordering everything and anything there were on the menue. How about some goat elbows? Sure. Goat brain? Why not? Wine used by normal people for cooking (except for people from Shanghai)? Absolutely. I have NEVER tasted anything that hits you that hard. One sip of that "yellow" stuff and you were ready to call it a day and go puke. Not sure how we got home but I guess by taxi. All in all, an interesting night out.

"I have to say that you are a group of brave ones. Usually foreigners are very cautious about these ‘funny’ things. I failed to persuade my Swiss supervisor to try pig tail which is a famous dish of Hangzhou but I fully understand his reluctance. Obviously the Swedes beat the Swiss in terms of braveness and innovativeness.Haha..."
