Sweet-and-Sour Sauce

Uyghur food

Again at the Uyghur restaurant next to the campus. A paper with the German translations of some dishes helped us to order but our Chinese was good enough to ask if the things contained meat or not. It was the first time that I’ve seen sweet-and-sour sauce in China. On the left, with the green eggplants.

If I want to recharge the card in Shanghai I need to get a form, fill it in, wait and pay at the counter:

Hanzi
