Compared with Haute Cuisine served in those up-scale restaurants, I found some people are fonder of the street food. Especially when I hang out with my friends, we would prefer those street stands food for dinners.

We don’t have to wear official suit or fancy dress. The atmosphere around those street stands is easy and cheerful.

More than that, I find it is weird. These small restaurants can be dirty but delicious. Is there any street food which has ever impressed you? If yes, I would be glad if you can share or post photos here.

I like to taste many street-food snacks, sometimes as a snack on the go, and sometimes as "more serious" dish (breakfast, lunch, dinner...).

If it is just a snack during shopping, or recreational walking around - I choose something "on the stick" if possibe.
Meats, meat balls, dough balls, fried vegetables (like small potaos), fruits (my favourite fruit in the stick - slice of pineaple)...

When eating as a dish - I choose almost any that I can find, and seems tasty.
Noodles (in soup, or fried) and dumplings, baozi, mantou, pancakes, fried eggs, fried or steamed meat...

The "key of the selection" is:
- where a lot of (local) people eats (longest line of waiting people)
- where the smell is pleasent for me (I stay away from dofu for example)

When eating "streetfood" I prefere disposable plates (or mentioned sticks), trying to avoid "washed" dishes and chopsticks. But there is no other option - no problem


I prefer "street food" over "restaurant food" in most cases, but sometimes local food is hard to be served as a street food - in that case I try to find smal, local restaurant."Fancy restaurants" are not my favourite places to eat.
