Century egg, also known as preserved egg, hundred-year egg, thousand-year egg, and thousand-year-old egg, is a Chinese cuisine ingredient made by preserving duck, chicken or quail eggs in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime, and rice straw for several weeks to several months, depending on the method of processing. After the process is completed, the yolk becomes a dark green, cream-like substance with a strong odor of sulphur and ammonia, while the white becomes a dark brown, transparent jelly with little flavour or taste. The transforming agent in the century egg is its alkaline material, which gradually raises the pH of the egg from around 9 to 12 or more.[1] This chemical process breaks down some of the complex, flavorless proteins and fats, which produces a variety of smaller flavourful compounds.

Oh me oh my

Hamburger chips YES
Blueberry Pringles NO


oh my god! you know about wikipedia too!!!!!!!???!!!


Aside from sitting in huge US shopping malls and watching people float by, going to a foreign supermarket is so fun. You are in bizarro-world.


turtles are already slow as molasses with a limp. being a turtle and that small is like god playing a really cruel trick on you.


The arrows on the market sign are a good symbol of how you feel when you go in there. Clusterfucked.


I can imagine stumbling into each taste as you gasp for the latter taste to relieve the shock and awe of the previous taste.

@Oh me oh my

it's a hamburger in a bag, not hamburger chips although that might be a hit. i'm still holding out for bacon flavored sunflower seeds.


Since when does anyone want their Lay's to be "natural and cool?" how about industrial and sloth?


Who cares about wrapping the meat when the butchers don't even wear gloves?

Where is this China place?


If you're in Shanghai, and find yourself along The Bund, you should take that awful looking, touristy glass ball ride under the river. It's kind of like an underground, neon-infused gondola ride to trippy music. Such an unnatural experience while riding along under a disgustingly polluted river. It can be really interesting what other cultures interpret as modern and/or tasteful.

I also thought the bird and insect market was rad, but don't go with someone who's a pussy about bird/swine/whatever flu.


Fuck Yes!

Dave Carnie is writing for you guys. That shit is hella puke. Whale Cock asian invasion 2009!!!!! Keep it up.


Canale, Do you mean like the train in Gavin & David Explore China from the Vice guide to travel dvd, Einstein?


hey canale can you tell me details? i live in shanghai and want to go there. do you mean the normal river cruise or actually a submarine made of glass?


I bet it smelled like shit in there too.
