Fried pork ribs with chilli and cumin – Guyi Hunan

Fried pork ribs with chilli and cumin - Guyi Hunan
¥32
Guyi Hunan, Shanghai CHINA

These ribs were super flavorful, but a bit dry and tough. You really had to scrape off the excessive amount of cumin seeds to get at the ribs, but the seeds were actually kinda fun to eat. Overall, this dish was a miss because the protein wasn’t cooked very well.

Served in bamboo tube. ¥88

This was an interesting dish. The bullfrog legs were generally bland, but these took on some of the flavor of the slightly spicy sauce. The legs were difficult to eat with chopsticks (I wish I could have used my hands but it seemed like a nicer restaurant). There were also some large starchy balls in there, but I don’t know what they were. They had a really soft texture that I didn’t like very much though.
