ShaoKao (BBQ) on street vendor

Guangzhou Shaokao

Street food is one of those things that's unique to a region and often overlooked when describing a culture. Yet, it's an essential part of life for many. It's cheap, fast, made to order, and tasty. Street barbecue vendors are a great way to have a whole pile of food you like cooked to lip-smacking perfection right in front of you on the street grill. Walk up, and choose any mouth-watering combo from the bamboo skewers of raw foods laid out on a long table - there are mushrooms (shitake, oyster, enoki), meats (pork, fish, prawn, squid, sausage) and vegetables (lotus root, spring onions, peppers), plus some unidentified tofu-type things.

Most importantly, yum cha is traditionally a social occasion, especially for families, as they catch up on news and discuss the week’s events and happenings.

A friend from Hong Kong once told me, “When Chinese people go to yum cha, they mostly order the shrimp dumpling—Haa gaau, because it’s like eating pizza without any cheese.” Some of the other standard dishes are “bao”—which are buns, baked or steamed, filled with meat and vegetables.
