Pizza in China

If you live in China {really, Asia} for any length of time, you'll find that their idea of western food and yours don't exactly match. You might go to an Italian restaurant and get olive oil soaked pasta with canned peas and bacon if you order carbonara. Or you might order mashed potatoes only to get a potato salad concoction with celery and carrots. 

But, by far, I find the weirdest stuff to be the pizza. There is some weird stuff on pizza here. Fish {not sardines}. Chips. Apricots. Whatever. 

The other day we went to a Korean chain, Mr. Pizza to say goodbye to one of our teachers. The Chinese staff went gaga over this pizza:

Not seen but listed on the menu: meat mix {we think sausage and bacon}, peppers, mushrooms, and sweet potato mousse in the crust. 

This was definitely not my favorite pizza.

What strange foods have you encountered abroad?
