He pointed to an item on the menu and questioned, “What is this silkworm chrysalis?”
As though regarding an imbecile, Yun Shishi lifted her head and flashed him a judgmental look, which was teeming with disdain . “What else can it be? It’s the pupa within the cocoon formed by a silkworm . ”
Of course, I know what a silkworm chrysalis is!
The problem is: Can this thing be eaten?
“That’s a worm!” The man lost his cool . “Can it be eaten at all?”
“It tastes pretty good . ”
“What is this cicada dish, then?” Mu Yazhe’s obsessive-compulsive disorder was acting up . He felt as though a swarm of black bugs was flying in front of him, but before he could look, a wave of queasiness overcame him .
“This shop’s cicadas taste heavenly! A former colleague of mine brought me here and introduced this brand-new world of eating cicadas to me . I found them disgusting initially, too, but I quickly changed my mind at my first taste of them . ”
The world felt too mysterious to him .
He had no idea that insects could be eaten at all .
“Plus, cicadas are rich in medicinal properties . They pose no harm to us and are, in fact, very beneficial to our bodies . The thing about barbeque, though, is that we eat it for the taste . There’s no need to consider whether the food is nutritious or not . Since I’m not eating grilled meat skewers, then the cicadas are a must-order dish!”
Once she was done filling in the order sheet, she handed it over to this roadside stall’s owner .
Very soon, various skewered dishes were served up to them .
The moment the man saw the first dish, he immediately covered his mouth in disgust .
How hardcore this woman’s taste in food is!
Fancy her eating pig brains .
The grilled pig brains, garnished with spring onions, soy sauce, and garlic puree, smelled especially fragrant with the constantly bubbling oil on the surface .
However, the thought of eating the dish itself was already enough to daunt him .
These are brains!
The woman was rendered speechless . “Hey, what’s with that expression? Need you to react so exaggeratedly? You look like you’re about to puke!”
“I find them repugnant . ”
“Take a bite and you’ll be surprised to find that there’s such a delicacy in this world!” She encouraged him .
He, however, clenched his teeth tightly in response, refusing to give the dish a second look .
Just looking at it was enough to kill his appetite and make him feel sick . If he had to give the brains a try, there was a sure chance of him vomiting his guts out .
Perhaps, it was due to the westernized education he had received from a young age, but it led him to be fussy with food and have a picky taste . He was considered fine now, but when he was younger, he dared not to take a bite of fish if it was served up in whole on the dining table .
Westerners tended to find meat dishes served with heads particularly repulsive, and this was more apparent when it came to them eating fish . They found it especially frightening to have the fish’s dead eyes staring up at them .
However, since returning from abroad, he had gradually learned to embrace the food culture of his fellow countrymen . It was just that, even now, he could only look from afar and dared not to eat exotic dishes, like brains, feet, and worms .
Unfortunately for him, the woman was bent on having him try the delicacy as she incessantly urged him to take a bite . “Don’t think of it as brains . Just tell yourself that you’re eating a piece of tofu . ”
“I’m not eating these . ”
His attitude was firm and unwavering .
She pouted at that . “Oh, please . Can you just man up? Even I dare to eat it; why don’t you have the guts? What’s the big deal about eating brains? You even eat snails!”
Those remarks successfully provoked him .
Squishing his brows together, he took a long look at her before shutting his eyes determinedly and allowing her to feed him a spoonful of mashed pig brains .
Inwardly, he constantly brainwashed himself into thinking, It’s just tofu… It’s just tofu…
The man endured his discomfort and swallowed the food straight down without savoring it .
“How is it?”
“Nothing much . ”
“Did you just swallow it straight down?”
Disgruntled, she went on to say, “You should slowly savor the taste . You can’t taste anything when you just swallow it down . Come have another bite!”Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
