I love this picture because it conveys the reality of street/sidewalk restaurant-kitchen set-ups in China.
To the left of the two tables is a noodle restaurant that Julianne and I frequently eat at. The entrance is literally about 4 feet away from the table. The reason I mention this is that when the cook for the outside street restaurant begins cooking, and we’re inside nearby eating, we get hammered by the fumes and particles of peppers being cooked as ladle-fulls of Hunan peppers are tossed into the cook’s wok over a high gas flame . . .
If you’ve never had your sinuses and throat assaulted by airborne pepper fumes you haven’t lived!
