msians are triggered n rightfully so. as a singaporean, first thing i ask is, wheres our street food? our hawker centres are considered as street food? well it used to be out on the streets until the government decided to put them under 1 roof.

Ceoworld reported that the ranking was conducted based on four parameters:

  • Number of street food vendors,
  • Affordability,
  • Number of street food experiences, and
  • Food hygiene.

perhaps for Caucasians visiting the cities, hygiene should be placed quite high up on the list. generally asians are used to "street food" but for an angmoh they may not be so accustomed to it. with the number of flies... msia have lots of street food but they're not number 1 on the list for sure.. i love msian food. cheap n good but not so much of the street ones if we talkin abt night markets etc??

where's considered street food? jonker street considered?? ipoh? penang? jb night market considered? Jalan Alor considered? night markets? cameron highland night market?? bought street food from jonker walk many times alrdy n real disappointed each time.. 

my list for asian countries

  • Taiwan
  • Thailand
  • Hong Kong
  • Vietnam
  • China

Sheltered Chinatown Street Food .

Food stalls there mostly operated by Ah Tiongs. So, should be considered as Ah Tiong food instead.

I find Penang food nice la but not machiam out of this world.

I think hawker food is considered street food and rightfully so. Even HK has less bona fide street food now as compared to yesteryears.

I also like to commend Singapore's street (read hawker) food to be generally affordable, clean and tasty. High turnover means food contamination is unlikely, low rentals esp for 1st generation hawkers keep prices affordable although 2nd generation ones pay a premium and unfortunately, this is passed down to us consumers. Tasty recipes often give even restaurants a run for their money so overall it's [thumbsup] and so kudos to all the hardworking hawkers for making this possible!

China taste good meh?

Taiwan street food has variety and is generally good but I find their pork dishes has a strong, piggy smell. Not sure if I have described it correctly but what I mean was that Taiwanese pork has a strong stench compared to our local version, I just don't understand why as pork should be pork wherever you get from in this World.
