When I was in Asia I did something I should have never done and that was eat the street food. Everyone told me not to touch the shit they were making on the backs of their bikes because they had no fridges, there was no way of telling how old the food was and I guess I could have landed anything from Feline AIDS to SARS to Avian Flu to whatever else the Chinese are spreading….
I read somewhere that the oil they use to cook with was found in floating on the water in the sewers and that worrying about them coughing on the shit was the least of my fucking concerns. But since I am broke and since I have eaten out of dumpsters, I have eaten rat and other things I’ve randomly come across for survival, I figured it was safe.
After spending 3 days locked down on a toilet thinking that I shat out my heart and even had to look to see if any other organs squirted out with it, I realized that the warnings were probably worth listening too but that doesn’t mean the shit didn’t taste good.
Here’s a video of some homeless lady who probably is the best damn homeless chef out there. She probably brought her kitchen skills from the abusive home she ran away from with her and I am just helping her reach her dreams of teaching the world her craft with this is street cookin’ show.
