Taste Buds

In Wuhan, the food is definitely your friend.  It tastes delicious, especially the street food.  The ironic part is that a lot of the food is served piping hot, even in the middle of summer!  Here’s a quick view of some of the best:

At $.08 each, the fried "Mian Wo" (literally "Dough Nest") hit the spot.

Wuhan is famous for its "Re Gan Mian", and this place is hands down the best, as the constant line of locals proves.

June is cherry season in China, and we rarely passed an opportunity to eat a handful.

During our stay, we also tried to eat dinner with Tian’s local friends.  On the night of our legal marriage, we went out with a group of Tian’s former colleagues from Wuhan University for a formal dinner.  It was my second time meeting many of them, and we had a great time.

Tian's former colleagues joined us for a celebratory dinner. It was the first of a long series of huge meals that week.



  1. Food: the way to celebrate the world over, just different foods but the same warm feeling of friendship and gratefulness.

  2. Joan! Thanks for reading AND commenting! It’s been such a busy summer, I’m just now getting back to posting. There are a lot of wonderful things to write about.

  3. Cherries, yum. I never dared to eat street food on any of my trips to China but I do remember street food in Prague (mulled wine, oplakty) and Greece (souvlaki and roasted corn on the cob) and those are great memories. And of course roasted chestnuts in NYC.
