Many travelers are scared to death to buy something in the streets. Actually the truth is that it doesn’t matter where you eat but it is a very important thing what you eat.

The food should be well cooked, and you must avoid raw or not cooked food. Smoked and grilled pieces of meat are better to sidestep. Unlike egg noodle seafood soup, it is an ideal choice from the safety point of view. Firstly, all the ingredients are boiled, then the main product of the dish is Chinese noodles. A traditional and very popular soup Tom Yam is not in the list of infectious street food either.
