A salad topped with Pidan

A lot of lettuce and tomatos delivered straight from a farm.

As a member of food, I cannot resist joining them.

Actually, it is a photo in a restaurant’s menu and I‘m just sitting on it.

But, I feel as if I was in the middle of a vegetable farm.

By the way, do you know what is me, Pidan?

Pidan is also known as Century egg, is a Chinese cuisine ingredient.

~~From Wikipedia~~

Century egg or pidan (Chinese: 皮蛋; pinyin: pídàn), also known as preserved egg, hundred-year egg, thousand-year egg, thousand-year-old egg, and millennium egg, is a Chinese cuisine ingredient made by preserving duck, chicken or quail eggs in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, quicklime, and rice hulls for several weeks to several months, depending on the method of processing.
