My Impression of Chinese Food

A century egg

A century egg

Two weeks ago, I went to a Chinese restaurant with my friends. At that time I ate a "pidan" (Century egg) for the first time. This food is a dish using a duck's egg. It looks black and it doesn't look like an egg, so it seemed not to be delicious.

But I challenged it, and its taste was that of an egg and had a peculiar flavor. I thought that the food was very mysterious.

Many aspects of Japan's culture comes from China; for example, Kanji (Chinese characters), religion, etc. I think that Japan and China look a lot like each other. However, I think that each culture's food is unique.

The Century Egg
by: Gary Wolff

Thanks for the interesting story, Yasuaki.

I dated a Chinese girl 9 years ago, and we often ate century eggs. It was one of her favorites, but I always thought it was a bit strange.

I prefer just a regular hard-boiled egg with a yellow yolk. :-)

Thanks again...
