Let these Sexy Chinese Dishes Seduce You

Chinese foods with sexy names


Sex sells, no doubt about it. So don’t be surprised if one day you walk into a restaurant in China and find yourself attracted by dirty dishes imbued with erotica.  Sounding like particularly racy cocktails, “One Night Stand”, “Red Light District”, or “Undressing The Virgin” can all be found on food menus throughout the country. Surely, it is only a matter of time until you can order a “Screaming Orgasm” for dinner. Whether the aim is to attract consumers, or just to increase people’s appetite is unclear, but according to Jiangsu Net, the use of sexual innuendo among Chinese dishes has been all the rage in Chinese restaurants recently and is a hotly discussed topic among Chinese netizens.

Nonetheless, the dishes themselves  remains “conservative”, regardless of the their provocative names. For example, “Virgin’s First Time” is nothing more than fried chicken legs sauteed in tomato sauce. What’s so sexy about that? While “Red Light District” is less about buying prostitutes and more a simple Chinese classical dish of diced chicken with chilies and nuts.

Below are a few dishes that might get your juices flowing:

The dishes’ names are often simply a reference to their ingredients and the way they are served.  “Prince Charming Riding the White Horse” is a dish consisting of White Tofu as the “White Horse”, served together with a picture of handsome male star picture inserted in it, as the the “Prince Charming”. Meanwhile “Undressing the Virgin” is ‘undressed’ cucumber served freshly as a cold dish.

Extraordinary names are not always in the realm of the sexual in China. Throughout history many dishes have unusual names, such as “The Scorpion Hotpot”,  which is actually a hotpot consisting of sheep’s spine that resembles a scorpion, chopped and boiled in hot spices.
