In true Bourdain-philosophy, to eat the street food of a people is to truly learn the culture. And perhaps nowhere is this more true than East Asia, as GoNomad.com explores in this culinary trek through Shanghai’s back streets. From the Nanxiang steamed bun (a large dumpling filled with soup) to Sichuan hot pots (a salad bar pick-what-you-want soup),the city’s teeming with cheap and good eats.
And what’s a visit to an Asian street market without trying something, let’s say, exotic, like Donghuamen Night Market’s offerings of “bamboo skewers of silkworms, scorpions, seahorse, snake and starfish.” Mmm, I have to go, time for lunch.
