There are many good reasons where you may feel uneasy i might add, but it depends on where you eat and how critical and aware you need to be as in any situation, buying out on the streets or a small side cafe or restaurant will offer more chances of such problems

From my personal experiences, and i am still alive and healthy and kicking Still years later to tell the tale,[touch wood!] you didn’t see me do that right, OMG!

What is more important is making sure don’t make a habit of eating out at stalls and crude shopping centres offering foods in market like halls. Of course trying out snacks with the locals is fascinating and interactive to see foreigners, chewing on a chicken wing or contemplating some spicy meats on a stick, this approach is exciting and attractive.

Some cities and provinces are less likely to give you stomach upsets or bugs due to cleanliness and preparation, and my recent trip in 2018 for 8 months i noticed many eateries are now showing the kitchen area through a transparent glass window. Alternatively TV screens place Comfortably in the dining areas so that the kitchen can be viewed.

Be smart be aware and eat in bigger establishments to be safer! Are Rumours on Fake Organics in Chinese Food true? it is difficult to say! just ensure you visit he larger and cleaner looking restaurants, also with friends as you are better looked after they know the ‘NO GO’ places

Cities are obviously likely to be under video cameras in kitchen and more governmental control as i see it here in Shenzhen where i live the majority of the time,

however when i go to Hong Kong i still find myself being watchful and careful as over there you have dubious places if you try all and sundry,so rule of thumb, check it out see the environment then decide but go for larger malls and shopping centre’s
