Diners in Japan are going crazy over mouth-watering “Chicago pizzas” deeper than a bowl of soup and understandably worthy for an Instagram post.
The “pizza,” which comes with a deep crust filled with molten cheese, is more akin to fondue and typically served with sausages and vegetables on the side.
If there’s one drink that’s winning lines of thirsty city dwellers across the globe at this moment, it’s probably a thing called cheese tea.
This rather unexpected concoction of tea with cheese on top emerged from the streets of Taiwan before making its way to China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, the U.K. and the U.S., to name a few.
China has recently imposed a ban on soft European cheese as local officials say they contain “too much bacteria”.
According to CNN, customs officials have now begun blocking the importation of popular French cheeses, such as brie, camembert, and roquefort, to the country. Suppliers of such cheeses lament that there is no compelling reason for the ban, as the products have been safely imported and consumed in China for decades.
