  • Alright ready?

  • It’s not bad

  • It’s just a weird consistency

  • You hate it right?

  • I do not like that

  • I’ll be honest

  • I don’t like the consistency

  • The flavor is not that bad

  • Mostly cause the flavor is like seasame oil with Sichuan peppercorn

  • But the texture is weird

  • It gets pasty in your mouth

  • It’s like gooey and pasty right

  • After feasting on delicious fly restaurant food

  • We took a night train to the famous food Mecca of Leshan

  • Starting out with a street breakfast

  • Followed by visiting the world’s largest standing stone Buddha

  • Cheers

  • That’s really good

  • That radish is great

  • It’s super soft

  • And just a total filler

  • Oh yeah

  • Then we made our way to the largest standing stone buddha in the world

  • This is what most people come to Leshan for

  • So we visited it during our non-eating hours

  • We were hungry for our next street food since we hiked up the stairs to see the buddha
