We sure do love food on a stick!
It’s delicious, cheap, easy to eat (no messy hands), and you can try many different things without eating too much. In Asia there are more than enough variations of food on a stick to choose from. We are definitely spoilt for choice here! If you are wondering what those fried goodies are above – dressed in the colorful sunglasses – well, those are squids fried in batter. We saw them at a festival here in China. Of course they don’t all come with the the glasses, but that would be cool too. Our favorite food on a stick is definitely meat, and for me that means most kinds of meat, even seafood!
This one is not for Justin, but most certainly a favorite of mine – Squid on a stick. They are grilled on a flat-top in a spicy red sauce, and I can usually smell them a mile off, so I’m drooling by the time we get to the food stand. It’s ridiculous how tasty these are… *Justin shakes his head in disapproval*
Crumbed chicken fillets on a stick
Very popular snacks here: corn on a stick and bread on a stick
Skewered chicken wings
There we go, finally one that Justin loves and I don’t. Chicken wings are just too messy for me, so I prefer not to eat them. These ones are spicy, and come with two on a stick.
And for those with a sweet tooth, there’s always something sweet on a stick to enjoy too. Like these treats – above – made from caramelized sugar. You can order them in a range of shapes, and it’s pretty interesting to watch the ‘artist’ make them. Cotton candy – or “Candy floss” as we would call it in South Africa – is also a very popular sweet treat on a stick here.
