Sweet Tooth

P1000887, originally uploaded by yellojkt.

Dessert is not a traditional part of a Chinese meal. At best some fruit are served, but the standard last course is soup. A large bowl of soup is served and everybody takes a bowlful.

As a special ocassion, the group had a birthday cake ordered from a bakery. The cake was excellent and equal in quality to a fancy wedding cake. There was also a small pastry shop right near our hotel. so there is hope for the Chinese to develop a sweet tooth.
