Jellyfish Soup?

Adam and I were invited to a special dinner in Albany.

Chinese - but not American Chinese food- REAL Chinese food.

It was amazing, and slightly scary (when the wait staff doesn't speak the best English, and when you ask "What's that?" and they say "Fish".... well......) , but overall AMAZING! Adam will try almost anything - and when I say almost - it's close to he'll try anything. So I just took a deep breath and dove right in.

Oh, and before I forget - the chef - from China - picked up our ingredients from New York City - this morning!

We started off with jellyfish soup.

I cannot even begin to describe the texture and flavor of jellyfish. You just have to try it.

Then came out the chicken and duck (with the head still on).
A cold plate of pork, squid, and beef.
2 different types of fish (with the head still on).
Squid - I have no idea how it was prepared.
Fried squid - YUM-O!
And eggplant something...
I know I'm forgetting a few things
(The food just kept coming and coming!)
Finished off with orange slices and a sweet red bean soup.

I just love that I can now say - "I've had jellyfish!"

Peace & Blessings!
