This will be my second trip to China. China was a country I instantly fell in love with and could not wait to go back to. My love affair with China started in 2017 and I can assure you it will continue the rest of my days.
Then I watched Anthony Bordain visit Chengdu on Netflix and quickly realized I am pretty screwed.
I quickly realized, the Sichuan province is different from Beijing. Truth be told I am more nervous about the food than I was before we went to Beijing. Why? Cause it is known to be hot as hell.
I have said over and over and over I am not a foodie. I don’t travel to eat, I really just eat to keep moving and to stay healthy. If food was not a requirement in life I would likely never eat. I do not eat spicy foods at all and also I can’t use chop sticks. I suck at it actually.
So back when I decided to go on this trip… I realized my co-workers eat a lot of Thai and Chinese… I made sure to order spicy dishes. Now I have to admit the first time I did this, I thought I was going to die. It was horrible but I kept trying to eat spicy food.
Now while I am not a foodie person I can eat spicier food. So maybe just maybe I can survive Chengdu.
