Heaven for foodies- Xiamen
As mentioned in my last post about Xiamen, I am going to write an article separately about the food there. In my opinion, this is the heaven for foodies, especially for those who love seafood. There are so many choices in the food street. Everything looks so good that somehow you may feel lost of what to choose. Hereby, I would share some of my favorite ones for your information.
 
Fried Oyster with Egg
As you can already guess by the name, it is a mix of oyster and egg. Some people also call it the oyster omelet. Usually, the local people eat it with a home-made special sweet & spicy sauce. The sauce helps to cover the strong smell of the oyster.  
 
Zehe Huang Peanut Soup
Yes, don’t be too shocked. It is literally soup made of peanuts. Originally created by a dessert master Chef Zehe Huang, this peanut soup won the gold model in a dessert competition in 1986. Although it sounds easy to cook, it actually requires a lot of technics to prepare. The most famous shop for peanut soup is named after the chef himself. You can find one of their shops easily on the food street on Zhongshan Road. It tastes sweet but not greasy.
 
Jelly Sea Worm
I agree that this name does not sound tempting at all. They are made of sea worm. And it is only available in this region, nowhere else to find in other parts of China. So I would say that it is worth having a try. Last time I tried it and it was not bad. Just don’t think too much about the ingredient when you are trying.
 
Barbecue of all kinds of seafood
Obviously, you should not miss this chance to enjoy the seafood. You may even feel overwhelmed by the choices on the food street. Because they are just too many. Word of advice? Please always ask for the price before you order anything and double check your order and the price after you finish ordering.
 
I think Xiamen is really one of the cities that I would never be tired of. Nice weather, blue sea, and amazing food. The best months to visit Xiamen are March, May, September, and October.


PS: March is actually quite close now, ready to pack and go?
