I imagine in every Chinatown of every major city there are redskinned chickens and ducks hanging in the windows. Ive always been fascinated with how delicious they look. But never ventured to go in and buy one to eat.

Hi Selvin

Indeed a good "street" perspective of some delicious looking fowl! I'm also hungry!

Bynx, I'm surprised you have not ventured to actually go in and try some... I would have thought this sort of adventure would be up your alley?! But rather you strap cameras to bikes and go wizzing through forests? :?

Thanks for sharing Selvin. It's always good to see reflections of people doing every day things.

Paul

Mugmar, Bynx, Pj1974,

Thanks for your kind comments.

Bynx,

You need to open your mind to the possibilities out there. Although I must confess some of the stuff borders on the bizarre at times even for a veteran Chinatown visitor like my self. e.g. pig entrails, chicken heads andfeet, and other "fifth quarters".

Pj1974,

Like you I'm an avid people watcher and Chinatowns across the world are a great place to start.

Mugmar,

Places like these are not for the faint of heart or those on a diet. Too much variety of food, too much food, too much sodium, and a blast of sensory delights.

Aloha

Your picture of redskinned chickens hanging in the window is a vision from as early as my childhood walking through Chinatown. Ive never thought of buying one. I was either too young to do it on my own. Or later, as an adult walking through the area it was just never an opportune moment to walk around carrying a chicken. I was always a visitor passing through the area on my way to somewhere else. And to go down to buy one was always just not worth the time and effort. I promise though, the next time I am ever near the area I will drop in and bring one home. I will be thinking of you when I munch away.

That is a delicious picture. Chinese roasted duck is good but greasy. It can be served on a bed of rice to help absorb the grease.
