The eggs are just mixed in with the dough perfectly Let’s take our first bite Oh yeah Oh, Beijing That is just fantastic That is a perfect start to the day Bye bye Awesome Nothing like deep Hutong street food What Chuchu brought me to next is one of the most enjoyable things to eat on the street in Beijing And the locals love it There really is nothing better Than eating this miancha sesame paste porridge in a Hutong alleyway Let’s go outside Look at this That sesame paste is so Xiang de A little salty Oh it’s so powerful That is pure powerful gloop Not much sweetness at all to it It’s quite salty And that is a thick thick enjoyable porridge Cheers It’s really like a sesame butter porridge but salty and powerful If you want to try something really unique in Beijing You can follow along with Chuchu’s tour And hop in a taxi And try the classic Beijing fermented stinky fermented soybean drink That’s stench fills every restaurant it’s made in As we started getting closer Chuchu started getting really nervous OK let’s go Let’s go try it out Oh it’s stinky in here There is a definite odor That is nasty That is really bad and strong It smells like socks, like wazi Let’s order one up I think it’s going to be a stinky bowl of douzhi So let’s just get one bowl, OK? Let’s order up This smells like burnt socks Oh that is stinky, here, smell it No no no no no Come on, here, give it a smell So we have douzhi, and what else?

Let’s go get something else to eat Oh that was nasty! So that was quite a strong dish It was not that good I thought it was kind of gross But I can see why people would like it It’s one of those things kind of like durian or stinky tofu Some people love it And some people hate it And that was one of the things that we both didn’t like It was kind of like stinky socks But we are going to make our way to another lunch joint To have some famous Beijing Zhajiang mian (Zhejiang noodles) After a quick ride on the subway We made our way to a famous little Beijing noodle joint (zhajiang mian) And, organ soup joint with the lineup out the door Gotta lineup, awesome As soon as you step into this luzhu joint You can smell the simmering intestines and lungs that green you As you line up to take a bowl from the huge cauldron that’s full of rich organ broth Organs, soaked pita bread, and smoky tofu The chefs are quick at work Chopping up the intestines and lungs with intense energy for a seemingly endless lineup And that’s when you know something is really good He’s just chopping, oh that’s a lung That’s a whole lung he is just chopping up He’s just mincing He’s just chopping that lung into little pieces And he is going to do that with intestines He’s done it with the pita and the tofu already And just filling each bowl completely Oh yes Organ delight Organ delight Oh yeah there is intestine It looks like there is some lung Pita bread, and tofu in a rich organ broth Everything looks so sloppy The juices are just flying The juices are just flying everywhere And he is just filling the bowl here with broth Here comes the broth That’s going to be rich Nice Oh that is beautiful Crazy in here It’s so busy After picking up your luzhu soup You need to get your famous zhajiang noodles Texture sliced thick noodles served plain with an assortment of sliced cold veg And a specialty secret bean paste That gives the dish it’s backbone essential flavor Ok lets go find a seat This just looks magnificent Oh look at all these ingredients In a rich broth This is just magnificent So start with the sauce? That looks so beautiful That is the most beautiful colorful bowl of noodles And that’s the real secret, the Jiang, right? And then just mix it up That is just going to be colorfully good I think the real secret is going to be that bean paste Oh it’s a thick bean paste And my mouth is completely watering right now Are you ready? That bean paste is magic It’s like a perfect mix between salty and sweet With nice bits of pork in there Shall we try this This is their specialty I’m going to get a nice big one with an intestine and a lung Can I get a double, triple combo? Intestine, lung, and pita Cheers It’s definitely strong And the organ flavor, the intestine flavor is overpowering But if you like that It’s actually really good Well that was fantastic Beautiful noodles It has been a wonderful day hanging out with Ting and Chuchu We’ve had a lot of good food We are exploring the old hutongs of Beijing now And we are going to make our way for Beijing duck Oh yeah, can’t wait!
