Odd Chinese Diets


Imagine a person going to a restaurant and asking for monkey’s brain. What will be the response of the staff? I can visualize a surprised face and a sudden burst of laughter in my mind. A wacky need they would say and may grab the person by collar and haul him out of the restaurant saying he is MAD.

But that’s not the case in China. If someone asks the same there, he will be given a plate full of monkey’s brain; as monkey brains scooped from a live animal is one of the much loved foodstuffs in Guangdong, in China. Doesn’t that sound gross? Just go though today’s CNN-IBN’s webpage and you will be shocked!

Do you want to know about another favorite dish of Chinese? Its chicken ‘bitten to death by poisonous snake and cooked up’, for an allegedly detoxing meal. The dish which was served in Guangdong and Chongqing in China, generated a lot of controversy in media and public that they are about to get banned, by the health authorities of China. A video that showed live chicken, being killed by snake bites has generated immense anger from far and wide.

Startling! it’s totally startling.But people are still hale-and-hearty after having such odd diets!God’s grace!
