"Yummy" Jiupin Street @ Chengdu
This will be my 2nd last post about Chengdu - China and it covers the yummy snack food sold along the famous Jiupin Street. Its existence dated far back to the Qin Dynasty during the reign of The 3 Kingdoms. Some granite paths and concrete walls are still there.
1. This short food street is located outside the areas of the Emperor Liu Bei's Mausoleum. It measures at a winding 200 metres long and attracts thousands of local Chinese folks who would throng the narrow lane daily.
2. This is the prominent landmark arch that connects to the next trendy hub of Jin Li Street. I will not be posting it because it looks similar to other ancient streets in China. You can google "Jin Li Street" images.
3. The food sold here were all Sichuan's hot and spicy snacks besides the roasted exotic meats of animals.
4. They have sweet tooth! They eat lots of sugar coated snacks after having the fiery spicy hot pots that could spit flames from your mouth.
5. The skewed fruits sticks were dipped in caramels.
All the fresh fruits are unbelievably very cheap there.
6. The Sichuan folks love to eat Rabbit Heads everywhere.
The poor Bugs Bunny's heads would be chopped into halves and deep fried! Argh!
7. They also eat roasted young & wild birds.
8. The Fried Peanut Crackers. Very sedap & bagus!
