"Food stalls" Food & Drink Tip by K.Knight

Food & Drink, Shanghai: 7 reviews and 12 photos

by K.Knight

I must say that the one thing that I never saw anywhere in all my time in China was a food inspector from the health department!

Food stalls are everywhere in China, and as was the case in Xian, Shanghai is no exception. Anne and I frequented these stalls on a regular basis to stock up on bottles of water and, Anne?s favorite, peach juice.

Although some of the street food looked very nice, and the prices were even nicer, I kept thinking of those adverts on television about the traveler holed up in a dingy hospital somewhere with food poisoning. (And the thought of Anne?s voice ringing in my ears for years to come, ?I TOLD YOU SO!?)

You see, when I was in Zimbabwe I got salmonella poisoning, when I was in Uganda I got food poisoning, when I was in??the list could go on?just ask Anne LOL:))
