One of the interesting things they eat here is the Lotus Root. It is very unique! If you look below you can see what it looks like :)

You can learn a lot of interesting things about the Lotus Root if you click here. There is one snack that I really like to make out of the root. First you use a peeler and peel the outside of the root. Then you slice it very thin (using a v-slicer or mandolin is helpful!). Then you deep fry them and salt them. They're a fun yummy snack!
I forgot to take an "after picture, so this is from Google Images so that you can see what they look like ;)
