Tony had the intestinal fortitude rivaled only by Andrew Zimmern. I’m afraid of street food. Hell I’ve seen enough of the Great Food Truck Race to raise an eyebrow on the hygiene of those too LOL.
Street food good, McDonalds in other countries good. Different strokes for different folks, though IMHO I wouldn't compare Bourdain's street vendors in Asia to U.S. food trucks. Here, someone with startup capital buys a food truck because they think it will be fun to make a limited menu without the overhead/commitment of a standing restaurant. There, someone may inherit their parent/grandparent's tools and dedicate their life to making the best Pad Kra Pao in the city, from a recipe that's been held and perfected by their family for generations (and often those previous generations are all at home depending on them to bring home the money to sustain them.)
Regardless, I think we can all agree Laura's booties smelled like week-old Pad Kra Pao + Big Macs left in the sun too long.
