As some may know I’m not such a big food-hero as I would like to be. A bit scared for “strange” unknown food. Which will let me quicky choose for the well known “save” options… A.k.a. hello Mac Donald’s. 😛

Besides my poor and pathetic fear there is the general advice to don’t eat street food in these kind a countries. Because you one: you don’t know how the hygiene is, and two: you don’t know how they dealing it with the meat and heat (climate wise). Well you don’t know that from a restaurant either. So either way you are never safe 😉

What you know for sure is that the street chefs know what they are doing because that’s what they grew up with. But there were a Chinese wants to cook western food, the change is bigger that something go’s wrong because the change is bigger that they aren’t familiar how to fix the food properly.

With all that in mind I thought, well maybe good to just try some stuff then. It’s kind a street food 1.0 because I didn’t go all weird with it and left all the stuff like octopus tentacles and scorpion on a stick where it was. That is something for next time 😉 In the end I have to say that I have eaten the nicest things at a street cart. So nice food for less money, that seems the way to go… right! So I can recommend trying it to every one, just start easy and work your way up 🙂

And before I forget… enjoy the market pics 😉
