We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Fried pig intestines

Fried pig intestines (葫芦头), the special snack of Xian, actually takes pork intestines and tripsas the basic material. The pork intestines look like a gourd, hence the name of “gourd head”. While taking, customer primarily breaks the steamed bun (mo in Chinese) into pieces, then chef places pork intestines, chicken, sea cucumber, squid on these pieces and water bone soup for three or four times, taking sweetened garlic and chilli space to cleanse the palate.

Fried pig intestines has a long history. As early as Tang Dynasty, it had been the flavor food already. Sun Simiao, the famous doctor in Tang Dynasty, was good at food therapy. One day, he ate fried pig intestines in a special store of pork chopsuey by incidentally. After a few mouthfuls, an offensive smell disgusted him.


















As a result, he left some medicines that could both cleanse the palate and invigorate the stomach to the shopkeeper. After the shopkeeper put these medicines into pot, the flavor was greatly increased as expected. From then on, his store was crowded with visitors and the cooking was handed down from generation to generation.

Around 1935, the army force of Zhang Xuelliang transferred to Xi’an from the Northeast. Soldiers suffered from cold, diarrhea, leg weary owing to the different diet and climate sickness. Since the sick soldiers were lack of appetite for the mess-hall food of military camp, they tasted the fried pig intestines in the restaurant of “Chun Fa Sheng”.


















Unexpectedly, after several deals, the diarrhea and cold were gone and the appetite was increased. The camp chef could not cook fried pig intestines as delicious as Chun Fa Sheng, so the army preserved 20 diets every day from Chun Fa Sheng to take care sick soldiers. After hundreds of years’ development, fried pig intestines of Chun Fa Sheng has been viewed as a famous Chinese snack.
