Taste of a Mule Posted by sasha on Oct 31, 2010 in Uncategorized
For a delicious, cheap snack in Beijing, look no further than a donkey meat sandwich, or 驴肉火烧. Although it may seem like a strange choice, put your fears aside and just dig in. You’ll find that donkey meat is quite flavorful, especially in this Chinese version of a submarine sandwich (which tastes surprisingly like a corned beef sandwich). At just 4 RMB, or about $.60, these are hard to beat. Pair it up with a bowl of donkey meat soup for 2 more kuai, and you’ve got yourself a damn good lunch for under a dollar. Sure beats that nasty processed $.99 hamburger from a drive-thru back home!
