Delicious Sandwiches (sānmíngzhì)


Bad English aside, sandwiches (called sānmíngzhì, 三明治) in China have unusual fillings e.g. sweet corn, Chinese mushrooms among them but it goes to show how much they love vegetables. A case in point are the sandwiches below:

I love sandwiches and my cheese, lettuce and tomato are my all-time favorite but my colleagues and ayi looked stared and asked, “How can you eat THAT?”

For the traditional Chinese, vegetables should always be cooked e.g. tomato and egg soup or stir-fried tomatoes and eggs with leek.

By the way, can you spot the spelling mistake?

Banana and peanut butter sandwich

Did you know that this was Elvis Presley’s favourite combo? He was from the South and one of his cooks, a Black lady, would deep fry it! No wonder he died of a heart attack…

Hahaha, I guess one man’s meat is another man’s poison 😉

Here’s the strangest sandwich I’ve ever eaten:

It was lovingly prepared by my husband on Valentine’s Day (a working day, incidentally) and I was rushing out the door to catch the bus 🙂

I had to cut the sausage into half before I could pop it into a food container.
