During a luncheon to celebrate a fellow teacher’s wedding, I tried chewing on a boiled and pickled chicken foot. It wasn’t to my liking. Even if I fancied the taste, there is really no meat on a chicken’s foot, just a covering of skin that turns limp and a bit slimy after boiling. But here in China, many people like to eat chicken feet, either as a snack or as a side with a meal.
I took this picture in a snack store in Hangzhou, China. Hangzhou is an affluent city not far from Shanghai. Seems that even those with money don’t lose their taste for a well-seasoned chicken foot.
