    This post made me hungry. I love street food and there are no better places in the world for that than Asia. Such a great place for food (and a whole lot more).

    Great guest post. I love xiao long bao the most, the soup that’s inside is so delicious. I wish I can visit xiamen too. 🙂

    Grilled Squid and Stuffed biscuits, I remember eating these. So good! The Chinese certainly have a huge variety of food on offer. The fresher food being much better to me than the long shelf life stuff 🙂

    Great to see I am the Witch out and about!!

    I’d love to try some of these foods – but not the grilled squid, I’m sorry to say. This is a lovely post. Wonderful photos.

    Very nice photos of the food, made my mouth water. I love the little steam buns, those are the only ones out of all the food listed that I’ve had because they’re readily available in the Chinese restaurants here.

    Great list. One that brings back many happy memories of the 6 weeks I spent travelling through China in 2005.

    I’m planning to visit Kinmen, the island under Taiwan, which is very close to Xiamen. I would love to hop over to China and see this interesting city. Your post made me curious 🙂

    Maria A: Those steam buns are really addictive! One was never enough! LOL!

    Cathy: Oh you don’t like squid? But it’s super yummy! 🙂

      Thanks Ciki! Mei’s post peaked my curiosity in China’s street eats. I’d love to visit and try them out if there are any vegetarian picks!)

    I love bao. We have a restaurant here in Chicago called Wow bao. Good stuff. The squid satays look interesting.

    Tasty article – I’m another Xiao Long Bao addict. For the stuffed biscuits I prefer the savoury options – pork and preserved egg is a favourite.
