I've had fried horse beans before but not that kind. It sounds really good. And that cumin lamb!! Can't wait to read about what you'll be cooking with all the other items!


cumin lamb and those beans sounds so good!


hi kirk - cool pix of the snacks! i love looking at candy/snacks from other countries (and sometimes eating them too!)...

been enjoying your posts so far.


Hi Carol - That broad bean snack is quite addicting.

Hi KAt - Thanks!

Hi CC - There was so much stuff I hadn't even heard of before..... and so many different flavors of potato chips.


If only food trucks and banh mi joints had your creativity Kirk! SD would be setting trends and not following them..


Hey Dennis - I don't know about that..... what I do know is that many things tastes great in a Banh Mi! ;o)


Looks like Szechuan peppercorns in second to last photo (red)


Hi Rockingham - Yes, it's Sichuan Peppercorn.... from Sichuan. It's much better then the stuff you can buy here in the states.


I don't post much but I always like your travelogues. I bought some Sichuan peppercorns here (Florida) and I didn't get much of that famous numbing sensation. Maybe they were old. I actually bought them at a Chinese herbalist and perhaps they had been sitting there for a year or two

I can easily believe you bought a superior product in China


Kirk, three words:
Sichuan Taco Truck!!!


Hi Rockingham - Sichuan Peppercorns do lose their pungency over time. Imported Sichuan Peppercorns are also irradiated, and I think that might have something to do with it as well.

Hi Hao - Yes, I can see it now..... Saliva Chicken Tacos!
