夫妻肺片

I’ve recently rekindled my love for this fiery hot and savory mix-it-up streetside snack which originated from Sichuan Province. KY first introduced me to it a few years ago when we were flatmates. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a stall selling the snack and guess what, I couldn’t resist.

It’s an easy process: Let the stall owner know which ingredients you would like in your snack – from a selection of mostly sliced beef, beef offal to processed food – and she will weigh the portions (so you know how much to pay) before mixing everything skillfully in a large wok with generous sprinklings of condiments, coriander and roasted peanuts. It should cost about RMB 10+ and definitely under RMB 20.

I’m not a big fan of beef or beef offal so my version is usually more a combination of crunchy things such as cucumber, jellyfish, seaweed, pig ears, transparent noodly things and Jew’s ear. While I’m quite certain it doesn’t sound very appetizing to the non-Asians among my readers but trust me, it is ! Crunch crunch, om nom nom nom !

  1. Looks AWESOME!! I can imagine the sound of peanuts all together! Oooo!

  2. Tastes AWESOME too, mouth-numbing nutty spiciness balanced with the refreshing crunch of coriander (assuming you don’t hate it).
