VIDEO: Going Local in China, Part 4: Food of China

This is the third post in new video contributor Kelley Ferro’s five-part video series on China, the first of many series covering destinations across the globe. The first part is here, the second part is here, the third part is here, and the fifth part is here.

Some speak of China’s food with fear and others while drooling, but after having been myself, I side with the latter. The food surely was foreign but it also made each dining experience exciting! I sampled street food at the markets of Shanghai, tucked into homemade noodles in Xi’an and I was able to partake in the legendary Peking Duck in Beijing (make a reservation at Da Dong).

China has a passion for food that’s similar to my own. Some of my favorite moments from my trip were tasting exotic delights offered on sticks from the street stalls. I’m not going to lie: As you’ll see in this video, there were certain bites that I just couldn’t bring myself to stomach.

Watch the video above, and see below for more!
