Facing down the alley…

Facing down the alley (just turn around from the above picture), and you’re looking at the snail man’s stall. That big cauldron is full of snails bubbling away in a savory broth.

You get a nice scoop of them ladled into one of those red plastic bowls and sprinkled with herbs of your choice. Notice the orange. It’s got huge safety pins stuck in it which the diners use to pick the snail out of his shell.

The smell is really very savory and not at all fearsome. No, I didn’t eat them. Yet.
