Great shots. What is going on with those walnuts in the mixer? They look like they are still in their shell, but then there is paste surging around them?!?


What a fantastic range of snack foods! I really enjoyed the Chinese-Muslim food I had in Beijing; now I just wish we also made it to Xian!


How were the skewers?


Hi Heidi - They are being roasted in salt. That's how they roast walnuts.

Hi Su-Lin - You know, I do have a pretty nice Uyghur post from Beijing coming up....I hope I manage to get it done before the next year! ;o)

Hi Jason - Amazingly.....they aren't much better than what I make at home! Really cheap though....

Passionate Eater

What a plethora of street food! Sometimes you can get really lucky, and sometimes, you end up getting greasy and rancid dough like you did. :( I am bookmarking this in case I ever go to Xian!




Hi PE - It is a crap shoot of sorts. I don't think you'll have much problem finding the Muslim Quarter if you're in Xi'an, it seems like everyone is there!

Hi Bill - It was a fun place to visit!


I just got back and ate LOTS of those dried crispy chili peppers (I have a high heat tolerance!), but was sad when I could not find them in either Beijing or Shanghai - do you know where to get them here in the states via mail-order??? (the photo I mean is of the tilted "sheet pan" full of just chilis with a few peanuts)

Thank you for the wonderful trip photos!!!

Here are mine:


Hi Andrea - Love your photos. We saw those type of chilies in Jinan, but not Beijing, though it could be we weren't trying hard enough! Let me see if I can find at least the Chinese name nad we can start there.
