At least you're getting a bargain!
Have you ever heard the expression, “You’ve got to go to Chinatown to get that”? It basically implies that goods purchased in Chinatown are wondrously unique, something you can’t get anywhere else. Why? Because they sell really weird stuff.
Walking through your Chinatown’s bazaar, seeing vendors peddling strange fruit that looks like medieval weaponry or entire animals that you’d consider “pets,” is probably what it would be like to end up on Tatooine on Thanksgiving.
What’s really interesting about the Chinese economy is that it’s really similar to America’s. At a Chinese McDonald’s they have ‘McNoodles,’ which is kind of cool. In their Walmarts, they have giant bins of raw meat, right when you walk in… just hanging out in the open…
Chinese Walmarts have a ton of other weird stuff, too. Check out this gallery for a tour.
Great Value Brand Beef Granules
If you’re looking for a gravy snack on the go, look no further than these individually wrapped hot and spicy beef granules!
I wonder what the 3 yuan difference means, as far as the quality in the rice. The guy in this picture doesn’t seem to care, because he’s getting a deal! Everybody knows that rice is a major staple in the Chinese diet, but this is just way too much rice here.
Screw Chinese mom-and-pop butcher shops. When you want bulk beef, hit up your local China Walmart… at least I think that’s beef. It might be pork. Maybe fox? Who cares!?
Apparently, they let customers rifle through meats like the bargain DVD bin and I love it.
