There is probably a Pizza Hut in Beijing too Simon, to help you with your home sickness. I at least saw one in Shanghai when I was there. :D
People thought I was joking when I wrote this list in my Pingyao blog...
But I was not joking. Id still love to know if this list was edible.
Marital affair with fragrant bull penis

Hi, a few of our favourites in pinyin
tie ban niu rou (sounds: ti yeh ban kneeyuh roe) its skillet beef and onions with black pepper, our favourite dish
suan la tudou si (sounds: swan la too doh suh) fried potato sticks with chilis, reminded me of hickory sticks kind of...
niu rou mien is a good standby - beef noodle bowl

After six months traveling all around China I found myself ordering one dish every single night: Chao qie zi. It just means fried eggplant and it changes from city to city but I never found a bad one anywhere. It's nothing like eggplant back home, it's simply the greatest food in the world.
For the truly adventurous, head to Shangrao, they cook it the best, along with the best non-veggie Chinese dish.
Yu Xiang Qie Zi (You shee ong chee eh zeh) is another good eggplant dish, its in a thick sauce, a little sweet and a little spicy.
La zi qie zi - spicy eggplant!
If all else fails, just ask for qie zi, they will name off a few, just agree to one...its 99% of the time a safe bet.
Chao qie zi
Is that the one in the black sauce. It is so delicious. I had that one time in China. I didnt understand any Chinese so the food they brought in the restaurants was generally a surprise. I am a vegetarian and had that written in Chinese to show the restaurant people. They then brought me whatever vegetarian food they had. 😊
Here are the details for "Chao qie zi"
酱烧茄子 Braised Eggplant with Soy Bean Paste
This is zhejiang Cuisine, it combines eggplant, cooking oil, sweet paste, sugar, soya sauce, salt, corn flour, ginger, shallots, garlic.
Thank you Beijingspectator 😊
no worries man, if you are not a vegetarian, you can try this (also with eggplant):
Braised Cat Fish with Eggplant 鲶鱼烧茄子
It combines Cat fish, eggplant, 50g port, caraway, salt, vinegar, pepper powder, shallots, ginger, sesame oil, and port demi-glace.
I think much chinese food has got no english name, if some has english name, I think the waiter can't follow you, I am always on business trip in China, and I found many high-end entertainment venues or restaurants can not provide original chinese food, if you wanna taste chinese food, you must go to muture residential area, there are many small restaurants locate all around, they cook delicious food, but price is low, and many of them can not provide you invoice as the cost is so little. and I think you can go to Haidian District in Beijing, there are many first-class universtities, students are from every corner from China mainland and some from Hong Kong, many local flavor serve them, the better is, many students there can make basic communication in English, if you are luck, you may come across a very warm-hearted student who can also speak beautiful english, he/she can help you. Now I am in Dongguan located at the middle of Guangzhou and Shenzhen, I have just eaten delicious food in a large residential area, the flavor is Chaoshan (潮汕) , many are only named in chinese, so I advise you invited a city guide in differernt city, he/she can help you.
