Food market in Xi’an

On the way to the hostel we decided spontaneously to look for the mosque. We had a map and a plan so nothing could go wrong.

The nuts were also sold cracked and slightly caramelized.

The dark eggs are tea eggs and they taste wonderful.


And these here were potato chips.


And fried crabs.


This we thought was liver.

This seemed to be quail eggs sunny side up on a stick.
