Fried Enema

From Sanam, who returned from her good will trip to China with proof that Chinese food over there really is different from Chinese food over here:


And here’s the delicious dish in the context of the original menu. No clue here. If Sanam ate the fried enema, she lied to us and said she didn’t.


Chinese-savvy readers: any clue as to what the menu writer was going for here?

  3. It's a kind of fried wheatmeal sausage. The same characters as "enema", but pronounced slightly differently
