More From South Beauty in Beijing

Some oily Sichuan pot with Wonder bread

Yup - this place seems to be a regular lunch place for our office given that there is an outlet of these guys in the same building. They ordered the usual spicy stuff, but the thing that was interesting to me was this big bowl of oily stuff that came with sliced Wonder bread on the side. The idea was that you could use the bread to soak up the excess grease that was dripping off of whatever it was that you scooped out of the bowl...kinda like the way you might use paper towels with bacon. I am assuming that one was not supposed to eat the bread itself.
