Life in China 2016: A Picture A Day, July 13 – Beef Tripe, my new food adventure today! I know some people in the USA eat this, but it certainly isn't a common menu option there! However, in China, it is.... I've just always ignored it! Today we had dim sum with friends and beef tripe, or stomach lining, was one of the dishes ordered. I decided it was a good day to try it, and thought it was ok, slightly rubbery, and the taste seemed to come mainly from the sauce it was in, but I will eat it again. It was specifically honeycomb tripe, which is from the cows second stomach and is the most preferred.
