CHINA – Gulangyu Island


seafood restaurant

The round, red tubs out front are full of freshly caught seafood, most of which is still swimming. We take a seat inside the restaurant and watch as the cook takes our order out of the tub and into the kitchen.

A few minutes later we’re peeling the shells of prawns and tugging clams out of their shells with chopsticks.

We eat these big oysters with thin noodles. There’s a jar of snake wine sitting on the bar, which we ask to try, but the server tells us we really don’t want to.

tea room

Silly Girl Coffee My Home Hotel

It’s really a hotel lobby. Also, fyi the “strawberry muffin” is actually a waffle with strawberry jam. 🙂 If you’re looking for a legit cafe, maybe check out Angelique coffee roasters or one of the milk tea shops on the island.
