My Hong Kong by Luisa Tam

Travel expert Jim Kitchen is wrong about avoiding street food on trips. Food tells people’s stories better than words, like cart noodles in Hong Kong

  • Kitchen’s comment in a recent interview about not eating street food for fear of illness showed a remarkable lack of adventure for someone who has been to space
  • Food not only connects people from all walks of life, but it also tells the story, both the highs and the lows, of its home country or city
