Green Garlic from Bai Jiao Yuan, Beijing
Here's some pickled garlic from Bai Jiao Yuan in Beijing. If I heard it correctly, they turn green as a result of that dark Chinese vinegar. I wanted so badly to eat a clove, but that would be a bad idea with afternoon meetings ahead. It was interesting trying the donkey meat dumplings though - they tasted a bit like corned beef but with a lamb-like muskiness.
