Ma erh tsai mao tan ch'ing was a Pai culinary dish. It mostly resembled a soup concoction filled with talons and spider-webs. To the Pai it was an unparalleled dish, though offworlders saw it as revolting and the smell alone would tarnish the pot containing the substance. Peasants who played a small part in creating this dish would honor the Dragon and see him enjoy it. (TNG novel: Dragon's Honor)
