A Taste Of Harbin In Harbin

China has no drinking age.

Z and I are always offered beer or wine whenever we go out to dinner with other Chinese people. We usually decline and fill our cups with tea or soda.

In Harbin, though, we heard of a restaurant where they give bowls for you to drink your beer out of. Daddy's Harbin student had said that Harbin beer is much better than the beer in Beijing, so he was ready to try it.

When we got to this local dongbei (northeastern) restaurant and Daddy ordered a bottle of Harbin beer, the waitress brought over the bottle and four for each of us! This was Z's and my chance to taste Harbin pijiu.

Ganbei! (Cheers!)
