Beijing fish beatdown

Did some hiking out in the Beijing Haidian suburbs over the weekend, and got some 农家 country-style food afterwards. Like many such restaurants in Beijing, this one had a shallow pool of water with a dozen or so rainbow trout swimming around. The entertainment as we sat outside and ate our lunch was to watch as groups of Chinese came by and ordered fresh trout, after which the chef would beat each fish with a wooden stick.

Here's a video:

Wouldn't have guessed that this entertainment can be found outside of the Beijing suburbs.
