Oriental and Asian cuisines are known for their peculiarities in different parts of the world. Everybody has seen photos of bizarre delicacies, such as insects, worms, bugs and rodents.
A young woman from the Chinese province of Fujian was forced to "enjoy some exotic food." The woman, Chen Fuzhou, posted a photo of her breakfast that her mother served her one day. In the bowl, there were a few boiled mice in a brown sauce.
Chen's mother explained that it was "mice soup" and offered the daughter to take it. Chen refused, but her mother told her that one cooked mouse was as nutritious as three chickens. She also told her daughter that it took her a lot of time to make the dish, and Chen was forced to eat the mice not to upset her mother.
According to Pravda.Ru, mice are considered one of eight types of most unusual delicacies of China's Fujian Province. Local residents believe that mice dishes contain a unique complex of vitamins that improve hair structure and prevent hair loss.
