I just read travel blogs from an Australian couple, they are funny and really enjoy street food in China. I copy some their blogs here, it might be informative if you want to visit China.

China Tour ~ Shanghai
中国之旅~上海-第一部分

Our bellies do flip-flops as we rocket into Shanghai from the airport. And it's not because the train is doing over 300kmh (seriously). It's because we're in freaking China! China and it's five zillion year culinary history has directly influenced all the Asian cuisines we love so much. Even though we're a pair of skippy non-Asian Australians, we feel like we're coming home to the motherland.
当我们从机场那边冲入上海时,我们的胃翻江倒海。这不是因为高铁在以300kmh(说真的)的速度疾驰着,而是因为我们现在就在中国!!中国和她5千年的饮食文化直接影响了我们所喜欢的全部亚洲美食。即使我们只是一对啥都不知道的非亚裔澳大利亚人,我们仍然感觉我们回了老家。


We get off the train in Shanghai to discover that we can't escape Christmas, even in China. We're a bit lost and some random stranger sees us struggling with a map and helps us find our way to our hostel. What a nice bloke, and what a nice welcome to China. Chinese folks we know back in Sydney were convinced we would be mugged, extorted, poisoned and possibly eaten as we backpacked China. But within five minutes of the holiday we've already had the exact opposite experience, and continued to do so throughout out the trip. Folks were super nice and helpful and we always felt at ease. Though once Shawn was slightly molested on the bottom, unfortunately by a bloke, but that happens to him all over Asia. Nothing so exciting happens back at home.
我们从高铁上下来之后发现即使在中国,我们还是逃不掉圣诞节 。我们有一点迷路了,一个路上的陌生人看见我们手足无措地看着地图,他帮我们找到了去青年旅社的路。真是个好人,真是中国对我们友好的欢迎。我们在悉尼认识的中国人都坚信我们在中国背包旅行一定会被骚扰,敲诈,中毒甚至被吃掉。但是在我们假期开始的5分钟内,我们就已经有了一个完全相反的体验,在接下来的一路上这个感觉都一直伴随着我们。中国人超级友好和乐于助人,我们总是感到很安心。即使有一次Shawn的屁股轻微的被人捏了,不幸的还是个男人捏的,但是他在亚洲总是遭遇这样的事情。在澳大利亚从来没有这样刺激的经历。



We're superstitious about the first meal of the holiday: it sets the standard for the rest of the trip. We could have eaten at one of the dozen too-tidy looking primary coloured Japanese/Taiwanese/Hong Kong style chain joints as we left the subway. But we held out until we found this: northern style cumin lamb kebabs cooked on hot coals and served in fresh flat bread. This is the last thing we were expecting and the best thing to find as the temperature was dropping down towards freezing. We paid 15 yuan, less then $3 Aussie. This is going to be a good trip.
我们对于假期的第一餐是很迷信的:它给我们整个旅程的欢乐程度定调。我们可以在离开地铁之后在那一堆色彩鲜明的日本/台湾/香港主题连锁店里挑一家吃 ,但是我们坚持着直到我们发现了这个:北方风格的用煤烤的茴 香羊肉串,夹现做的饼。这根本不在我们的预期之中,但这却是这个几乎零度的天气之下最好的食物。我们付了15元,不到3澳元。这个旅程将会很愉快。

This setup is permanently affixed outside a Northern style halal restaurant. We guess it keeps the smoke out of the restaurant, saves space and catches extra takeway business.
这个摊位固定在一个北方风格清真餐馆外。我们猜这个装置排出餐馆的烟,省空间还可以提供一个额外的外卖服务。



We wander around a little more and find some street hawkers selling bbq skewers and noodles.
我们到处走了一下,发现了一些街边小摊卖烤串和面条。


This simple noodle stir fry was devine, made by a one-dish master. Our thick egg noodles were mixed with egg, bean sprouts, chili, green veggies and a bit of salt. We go back to our hostel to learn that Kim Jong Ill just died, Chinese TV said he was a real swell guy who expressed some interest in economic reforms.
这个简单的炒面是神级的,一个大厨烧出来的。我们厚鸡蛋面条加了鸡蛋,豆芽,辣椒,蔬菜和一点点盐。当我们回到青年旅馆时候,发现金日成死了,中国电视上说他是个胖胖的家伙曾经表达过进行经济改革的想法。



We awake to find we're staying in pleasant neighbourhood with relatively calm, tree-lined streets. We were near the French Concession, on the Ji'an Temple side.
我们发现我们在一个令人愉快的地方醒来,清净,路边覆盖着树的街道。我们在法租界,靠静安庙的那边。



For breakfast we judiciously pick the first place we find, and it's a beauty.
对于早饭,我们决定选我们能找到的第一家店。真的英明的决定。



We figure this is a real Shanghai style joint, the trays of ready-to-go dishes remind us of the Shanghai joints back in Ashfield in Sydney. The restaurant is squeaky clean and served by a cheery army of aunties and uncles. They weren't sure about us the first visit but on the second visit we were greeted like long lost relatives.
我们估计这是一家真正上海风格的餐馆,一盘盘的熟食让我们想起在悉尼艾士非的上海小店。这家店超级干净,一群开心的阿姨和叔叔们在这里工作。我们第一次来的时候他们对我们不是很熟悉,而当我们第二次走进来时,我们就像他们长期失散的亲戚一样的被欢迎了。

We want to transport ourselves back and dive into the bainmarie of love. Lonely Planet tells you never to eat pre-prepared food, which would mean missing out on the best stuff. The trick is to find it fresh, that's usually when it's crowded with locals.
我们想穿越回那家店并浸泡在充满食物之爱的温泉之中。《孤独星球》告诉我们说千万不要尝试事先烧好的食物,这意味着我们就会错过这个好地方了。诀窍是要找到新鲜的餐馆,而这通常意味着当地人拍长龙的地方。



We could spend half our trip in here.
我们可以在这里度过一半的假期。



If any germs make it through the hygienically sealed chopsticks the fiery chili paste should kill them.
即使是有病菌残留在这些密封的一次性筷子里,这超辣的辣椒酱也会杀死它们的。

There's no finer breakfast than noodle soup, especially when there's a pork chop involved. The broth is dark and sweet. The noodles are perfect. The tops old auntie sitting next to Alison burps all cute and lady-like. If Brad and Angelina can adopt overseas kids can we adopt overseas old ladies?
没有比汤面更好的早餐了,特别是当里面还有一块猪排的时候。这个汤是深的,带点甜味。面条简直绝了。那个坐在 Alison旁边的阿姨,很女孩子样的打嗝,好可爱。如果Brad和Angelina可以领养外国小孩,我们可以领养这个阿姨吗?



As we eat a production line appears out of nowhere behind us.
在我们吃的时候一条生产线悄无声息的在我们背后出现了。

A hundred or so lunchboxes are being made up. We see folks eating these everywhere.
在制作上百个饭盒。我们看到到处都有人吃这样的盒饭。



For breakfast the next day we pick from the bainmarie of love. Chopped tofu, pickled cabbage, slow stewed five spice pork, pork schnitzel and a soy egg.
第二天的早饭我们又沉浸在爱中了。切片豆腐,酸白菜,五香猪肉,猪排和一个卤蛋。



Much the same selections only add an egg for a breakfasty touch. The stewed spare rib added a spare tyre.
As we eat all restaurant activity suddenly ceases and all eyes are on the TV. Howls of laughter erupt as the 'Good Morning Shanghai' type show plays the 'ultimate dog tease' Youtube clip. Some things are universal.
这份基本相同,只是为了早餐的感觉加了一个鸡蛋。一个大仔排给我的腰围又增加了一圈。
在我们吃饭的时候,突然所有的活动都停止了,所有人都在看电视。在“上海早晨”播放youtube“终极狗狗调戏法”的时候,一阵阵的笑声响起。一些事情是全球通用的。

We hit street food gold.
我们找到了路边小吃之王。



Google tells us the lady is making a Taiwanese pancake. A large freshly cooked savoury crepe with a splash of egg and (hoisin?) sauce and filled with a fried bread stick, herbs and luncheon meat sausage.
谷歌告诉我们这个妇女在做台湾煎饼。一个很大的现做咸薄饼加一个鸡蛋和海鲜(?)酱,加上一个炸过的饼,香菜和午餐肉。


It's all rolled up into one big pile of starch, fat and carbs.
卷起来的一个淀粉,脂肪和碳水化合物的组合。



It's not art but my god it's delicious on a cold Shanghai morning. Sydneysiders can find these rolls at Red Charcoal BBQ in the Eating World Food Court.
这不是什么艺术品但是天阿,在一个上海清冷的早晨,好吃极了。悉尼人可以在食府美食苑的大堡礁烧烤找到这样的煎饼。

We'd read that Shanghai is no good for walking, which is our next obsession after food. Shanghai is brilliant for walking, especially in late December when it's quite chilly but pleasant, as long as you're rugged up. The main threat is crossing the road. There's all manner of vehicles, from Mercs and Audis to scooters held together with sticky tape. A green man at a pedestrian crossing simply means it's time to play chicken. We much prefer the Vietnamese style of crossing the road - just walk slowly and the traffic flows around you.
我们读到上海不适合散步,这是我们排在吃之后的第二大爱好。实际上,上海超级适合散步的,特别是在12月底的时候,当天气有点微凉但还宜人,只要你包紧了。最主要的危险是过马路。车开成什么样的都有,从奔驰到奥迪到用胶带绑的小摩托。在路口一个行走的小绿人告诉你现在可以冲了。我们更加喜欢越南过马路的风格,只要慢慢的走,各种车辆会在你身边慢慢过。




Random fun looking Shanghai eat street.
随机照的有趣的上海餐馆街。



This fine hound stopped chewing his bone to come and say hello, what a gent.
这个猎犬停下舔噬自己,过来跟我们打招呼,真是个绅士。



We find an open air wet market on Taiwan Road, a few roads up parallel to Nanjing Rd, and far more fun than endless Gucci stores.
我们找到个台湾路上的菜市场,在南京路平行过去几条街,一个比只有看不见尽头的Gucci商店更加有趣的地方。

Man that bird looks so good but there's no room in the tum.
老兄,那只鸡看上去超级好吃,可是我胃里已经没有空间了。



Smooth bakery operator.
祥和的烘烤店老板。



Crispy deep fried cake with a sweet filling, possibly sweet potato. Looks good but the plain cake was better.
脆脆的油炸饼带甜甜的馅,可能是甜薯。看起来不错但是普通的饼更好吃。




Is that a bear or a dog? Alison stupidly tried to pat him and nearly lost an arm.
这是只熊还是狗?Alison愚蠢 的想去摸摸它,差点被咬掉一只手臂。
