3. Try out food that you never heard before

Has anyone tried eating Blacksmith Beef before? If not, this will be a good chance for you to try one here in Xi Jie Shopping Street. After all, the store owner did mention that "no good no pay". Although in reality, I would think that the store owner will at least scold you if you do not pay.

Or you can get drunk later at your hotel room after you bought this bottle of Chinese wine. The alcohol level in these drink is pretty high. Some Chinese martial arts movies even show people who can fight after drinking these alcohol (the Drunken Master, anyone?).
