It’s a traditional delicacy in Malaysia, where it’s known as Malacca Bluebird.
Its flavour is tangy, and its crunchy bits are a favourite of many Malay people.
But in China, its reputation is one of the worst.
The dish was invented by Chinese settlers and became popular with Malay food lovers when the country was under British rule in the 19th century.
But its popularity has declined since then, and the Chinese government has been trying to clamp down on the foodstuff.
The new crackdown comes as China’s central government prepares to sign a new trade deal with the United States and other nations.
The move comes as the United Nations’ World Food Programme warned China was turning its back on its people.
The government has said it will not allow its citizens to eat Western Bluebirds, a product that originated in China and now is in demand in Southeast Asia.
Its ban on the traditional dish will come into effect from November 1, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organization.
