Street food



This fried rice looks awesome. His outdoor station is kinda messy, but he probably cleans it at the end of the day.

I like the sound of the spatula/ladle hitting the wok. An order of fried rice probably costs 30 Rupees or so -- or about 40 cents in American dollars.

You really think so?

Yep, it's interesting to watch, although I'll pass on eating it.

That looks really good, but the guy does make a mess. You could scoop up another order just from what's against the backsplash.

That's only 10 rupees.

The way he tossed it from the pan into the ladle to serve right at the end - that's impressive!

Heh. All that mess probably contributes to the wok hei!

I think I'll pass.

I've had street food in Pusan, Korea, Hong Kong, and in Olongapo. Each time it was cooked in a screaming hot wok over a blow torch, and everythng was clean. They also sold monkey meat on a stick in Olongapo, though I suspect it was really chicken. All I know is that it was all really good, and really simple food. Of course the spread they put out at the resort I went to in the Phillipines was the best food I've eaten, anywhere.

But I make better chili.

He should clean up the mess sometime during his slow and down time. It is a definite turnoff.

I wish they had followed the person that bought the fried rice, I'm curious about the packaging they used, I wonder how far you could travel with it and how you would eat it from that sheet of paper, 1st world problems!

They'd probably eat it out of the top of paper using their fingers (the most common utensil in India I think) or a fork. In the UK, I think they used to serve fish and chips in the newspaper, too.

I am curious about the fellow who started up his own seafood truck. We haven't heard from him in a long while. I hope he is doing well and very successful.
