I had eaten a massive breakfast this morning so big, in fact, that I was not even hungry when lunch rolled around. This proved to be a big mistake because after touring Lishen, a prominent manufacturing company of batteries, and then going straight to shopping, to then class at 2:30, I was starving by 5:00 pm. Luckily, Helen's is right across the street and a block down from the university. I had never eaten the food there but have heard great things so I decided to try it out. They had a wide range of non-Chinese food from pasta to salads, but I had to go with a cheeseburger. I had been craving one ever since my first plate of dumplings in Beijing. It was phenomenal! Thick, juicy, toasted bun; everything I love about a burger, they had involved it. They also had cucumbers on the bottom which I have never had before, but turned out to be great as well. That burger was long overdue but I was glad I got to avoid Mickie D's to get one. It was the perfect thing to remind me of home and the whole meal was about $4.00 USD. A burger and fries like that would be at least $10.00 in the states, man I love China.
