Dinner was a group affair in a private room at a large round table with a lazy susan in the middle of the table and much served family style. I opted for rice as I couldn’t quite wrap my head around the selections live in the tanks we were shown. They had everything from live eel, to angry lobsters, slithering snakes, to slippery fish, snapping turtles to a baby crocodile (or was it a gator?)
The Chinese waste nothing in their meals and eat an enormous variety including internal organs, bone, and skin. For a palette that is accustomed to boneless, skinless and no organs, it was a bit of a challenge!
