Tasty Sunshine Country

This is a post all about food.  As is the case with the consumption of most great dishes, there will be few words.  I'll only mention that, as China is an enormous country, it plays host to a broad range of cuisines.  As a city of 14 million migrants, Shenzhen is a jack of all of these cuisines, but master of none (though it does get pretty darn close sometimes).  I've been saving these for a while, I hope they are as delicious and strange to look at as they were to eat.
