Black egg, Guangzhou, China.
China blocked access to Tumblr shortly after I started this blog—no doubt in order to stifle my exposé of their quirky food. But I’m back in business, with more strange eats coming your way.
Here pictured inside a dumpling with sweet red bean paste, this treat is just egg white, turned black. Slightly eggy flavor, consistency of jello, only slightly denser. Somehow this simple white to black inversion causes it to be regularly featured on top 10 lists of the most disgusting foods, as judged by Westerners. Get over it guys.
(though I’m still there with you on stinky tofu)
