8 Taste of Chengdu part 2 Street Food or should I say "Snacks"

When we say snacks we think chips, peanuts, cheese and crackers but in
Chengdu, it's anything on a stick. Some easily recognisable others leave
you wondering. BBQed and deep fried morsels heavily marinated in soy,
chilli or a thick sweet substance. Steamed buns, dumplings and all that is
just the savoury.

The bakeries are amazing and I could easily survived on anything filled with
custard.

Just as we would have water in China you are served green tea with every
meal. Popular drinks are ice teas, fruit juices, milk teas and bubble
teas... Bubbles you ask, think warm milky tea infused with beads of jelly
that don't necessarily give it flavour but texture.

As much as I have been enjoying the fabulous lip numbing flavours, there are
moments where I craved simple tastes of home.... Well until the next yummy
thing was in front of me!!
