( or Bing Tanghulu, 糖葫芦 )
Tanghulu, also known as Bing Tanghulu, is a typical winter snack for northern parts of China.
It is a "fruit kebab" featuring a mixture of fruits and coated in hardened sugar syrup.
Particularly loved by children, not only is it colorful , but also rather tasty (sweet-and-sour).
Deep Fried Bread Twists ( or Youtiao, 油条 )
Chinese answer to the doughnut challenge.
Youtiao has a long, twisted shape and is served with sugar and with a cup of hot soy milk.
Steamed Bun ( Baozi, 包子)
Baozi is a typically Chinese grab-and-go stomach filler. In essence, it's a steam-cooked bun made of heavy white bread usually filled with meat.
Baozi vendors are easily recognisable on the streets by those bamboo steamers filled with piles of freshly-made buns waiting to be consumed.
Tea Egg ( Cha Ye Dan, 茶叶蛋)
Tea egg is just one such uniquely Chinese invention that is widely appreciated as a snack on the streets of Beijing.
It involves an egg boiled in something similar to tea – a soup-like mixture of black tea leaves, soy sauce and spices. This gourmet snack is much loved by the locals for its cheapness and taste alike.
Old-style Beijing Yogurt ( Lao Beijing Suannai,老北京酸奶 )
is produced from heated milk mixed with sugar, nuts, raisins, and rice alcohol. It is meant to be consumed instantly and, therefore, it is made and retailed fresh every day all over the city. So, next time you're in Beijing, look out for those cute little glass jars, so as not to miss the excitement.
