Kenji Lopez is making a trip around china and sharing stories and pictures about that. You can find about that in the blog: http://kenjilopezalt.github.io
Just a couple of highlights:
I still haven't recovered completely from eating in Sichuan and Chongqing. I wake up in the middle of the night with crippling bouts of heartburn. My guts have been torn to shreds by chilies—I've exercised China's bring-your-own-toilet-paper policy in more places than I care to admit. When I sweat, my pores ooze out pure capsaicin. Adri long ago shifted to a basic subsistence diet of plain crackers, dried fruit, and milk tea.
