Street food in Asia is a separate world. Completely different from our usual catering and amazingly amazing for those who come to Southeast Asia for the first time and have never encountered anything like this before.
The fact is that a huge number of Asians do not eat at home at all: they do not have the habit, skill, and often even the opportunity to “cook borscht and fry potatoes” due to the very modest area of u200bu200bthe dwellings.
As a result, in any seedy city, thousands of street food outlets thrive, offering a wide variety of and sometimes even incredible things to eat.
Often it looks like shops with vegetables, meat, fish or seafood, only people do not buy them home, but from what they bought right there, on the spot, they cook something for lunch or dinner.
An elderly woman seller in some half a minute deftly skinned the bug-eyed ones, removing unnecessary bones and tearing off the skin from the meat, and then her son, the cook, got down to business. Wok pan over high heat, vegetable oil in there, then soy sauce so that the oil flared for a couple of seconds and only then the pieces of frog meat went to fry in boiling oil with sauce.
The frog is fried for just a couple of minutes, because. the meat is tender and the pieces are quite small.
NThen transferred to a plate with greens and hot peppers, in addition, a standard for Asia is offered soy sauce. -rublej-3ff300c.jpg” alt=”Taiwanese street food: fried frogs with beer for 500 rubles” />
And, of course, beer.
What kind of Asian would have dinner without local beer, which is quite light and almost not intoxicating.
The frog is pretty tasty, by the way. It really is a bit like a chicken, but not one to one, as many people think. And soy sauce adds spice.
Overall, quite tasty and a good alternative street dinner for 500 rubles (of which 250 rubles is beer).
