SJB sounds delicious though I probably would burn my mouth/tongue on it, and I wonder where you will be adventuring to next...

Hangzhou Hero

If you ever get the chance to go back to China, there's a place in Shanghai that has what I thought was the best SJB I've ever had. Though I think Suzhou has some of the best cuisine in the mainland if you play your cards right.

And speaking of which, aside from your guys general looks and stuff, another reason the lady probably knew you weren't from around the mainland is cause of your decency to give her your seat. That kind of basic care for others has been lacking in the mainland for a while.


Deja vu I saw this episode on No Reservation ;-) you didn't try the XLB across the street? I feel like I have to travel to China to experience this treat now I just need my wife to freshen up on her Chinese and I'll be set and very happy.

Great post. Love the travel posts. You get to places I will never see.


Unfortunately for me, Im the impatient hungry eater that always goes to all the sucky places with no lines. Sign me up if you decide to have a food tour and I promise to be patient


Hi Kat - We've got a couple of places in mind. This year, it's all up to the Missus.

Hi HH - Welcome, and thanks for taking the time out to read and comment. I'll actually mention an observation of ours in a later post that addresses your comment.

Hi Bill - I think you'll love eating in China!

Hi Ed - I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

Hi MikeW - I'm that way too...... I hate lines and waiting. But the chance at some good SJB over-rode the desire to walk away.

my heart just skipped. i love carbs <3


Hi Judy - LOL! I hope all is well.... and I'm waiting for a new post! ;o)


That sounds like a wonderful visit, the green canals look electric! and those buns! there's nothing quite like a well seasoned pan...


Hi FH - That is a pretty bright green!

I had SJB in Taiwan at a night-market and loved it! These look sooo good! Speaking of which, I should really post about it... It's been over half a year - talk about procrastination! Love your China posts!


Hi Christine - Yes, you should post about Taiwan.... I'm sure we'd all love to read about it!
