Food-loving as they are, Chengdu people have also shown great ingenuity in making food and boldness in trying new,
even bizarre inventions, some of which may seem unacceptable to outsiders.
Fried Pig's brain
Chengdu people are famous for their love of the brain.
It is not surprising to find brain noodles in Chengdu, but the fried pig's brain is rarely heard of to most people.
It looks not bad, and is usually eaten with mayonnaise or mustard sauce.
Pig's brain sushi
The match of sushi and the brain would sound incredible, but people who have tried this dish find the taste really good! They say it tastes like Foie Gras but stickier.
According to those who have tried it, the intestines sushi is well cooked and tastes good, without unpleasant smells at all.
Intestines in Chicken Wings
The intestines are stewed in marinade before being filled in chicken wings.
Baked over a fire for a while, the skin of the wings becomes tender and the intestines are tasty as well. By the way, you can only find this dish in Chengdu.
Crayfish in Hotpot
Spicy crayfish, garlic crayfish, steamed crayfish…dishes with crayfish are always people's favorite. But what about crayfish in the hotpot?
Ice cream dressed with spicy oil and mustard
Imagine Chengdu people eat ice cream with red oil (chili in it) and mustard! You can have the fantastic experience with only RMB12.
