  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Food In China by Snowey on 1 October 2005 3:20pm
I'm going on holiday to China in November and although it is a package deal it is at the budget end of the market so no meals are included. I always think that trying the local food is half the pleasure of traveling and normally try (almost) everything on offer even at the risk of a touch of Delhi Belly/Montezumas Revenge etc. which I have endured in the past. I was speaking to a frequent visitor to China recently who told me to avoid meat altogether or suffer the consequences. Normally I would ignore such misgivings and eat whatever I wanted but being that the nature of my holiday package involves a lot of daily travelling (i.e not within rapid exit to the bathroom distance) I'm a little unsure of what I should or should not risk eating. Has anyone any advice or experiences on what to eat or avoid while in China.
Your help will be appreciated.
