Chinese Gastromony!

The food has been top notch with a wide variety of international foods. We were on our own the first night. Being exhausted and not wanting to venture to far we found a burger joint of all things and sat outside (the locals were in the air conditioned inside) where we had 2 for 1 Heineken and Tasmanian beef burgers. Go figure!

The Ritz Carlton provided a five star breakfast with everything from congee (think Cream of Wheat), to dim sum, to fried noodles and smoked mackerel. Of course there was also the traditional eggs and bacon.

We have dined at casual Chinese restaurant and had Mongolian barbeque where you pick your meat, vegetables and sauces and they cook it on a big grilled. I passed on the goat but everything else was yummy. All of this is washed down with very large bottles (600 ml.) of Tsingtao beer. Think Coors Lite.....need I say more.

The cruise ship food has been tasty and plentiful. I have particularly loved the home made yogurt, green tea flavoured is good but mango is my favorite. The jars they are made in and served in are so cute. I may have to do some research on making my own yogurt when I get home.
