Street Food

Just wrote an article on a small food stall that serves up some of the best Chinese vegetarian dishes I have ever had. This is the same couple that cooks for the temple and I hope thier business takes off, not just because I know them but because I'd like to see more street food.

In Korea and Europe street food is pretty common, here not so much. The little food stalls give a person a real taste of the country and it's fun to watch the food being prepared. It would be nice to see more of it here in the Far West Valley, soemthing beyond a hotdog cart or unlicensed ice cream truck.

As it turns out, I thought it was a lost art, too.
But then I visited San Francisco for a couple days, and wow. Everywhere there's street chow.
In Indy, 'street food' is chow tossed on the sidewalks.
Then it dawned on me...SF doesn't have bugs the way Indiana does.

Cripes, in Montreal street food (even ice cream) is banned outright! Bastards!!

The other thing I miss is the open markets. I never had so much fun shopping.

When Doug and I visited NYC recently, we noticed that it's getting easier to get Middle Eastern fool from street vendors. I like falafal a lot!

Street food is best eaten outside. Never mind about the bbq'd lamb cart.
