In Qibao, Southeast China, is a tiny water village that is very well known for its tasty street foods which are probably also the best in the whole world. Even though you may not be familiar with Chinese cuisine, there’s no doubt that you’ll find these foods delicious just by looking at them.
This may look like just a small village but wait until you see what they have to offer.
This is called “beggar chicken”. It consists of a whole chicken that is wrapped inside a mud shell then baked.

Maybe you’re thirsty and want some Chinese drinks that are made from grapes, citrus jello, grass jelly, coconut bits or watermelon.
In China, these are called malatang. They consist of skewers of giblets, tofu, seaweed knots and mushrooms that are dipped into spicy soup and then eaten out of paper containers. Sounds yummy huh, spicy food lovers?

Or maybe you want some hot sticky rice cakes. The purple sticky rice is red bean flavored, the yellow one is durian, and the green one is Chinese medicinal herbs.

Chinese fries that are not deep fried but rather stir fried with green onion.
