Yiqi Chen ’21’s Taste of Home: Beijing fire tripe


Animal intestines, although unappetizing to many, are a delicacy to Yiqi Chen ’21, an international student from Beijing, China. Beef tripe in particular is one of Chen’s favorite foods from home. “Among the many Chinese ways of eating innards, Beijing’s ‘ re tripe’ is very special,” said Chen. “It is typical of Beijing-style street foods: simple and plain.”
