I have a friend who runs a popular restaurant in a very popular tourist destination in China. You may even have been there. I won't name it for now. Every week the local police chief, his friends and various local government big shots turn up, eat the place out, get blind drunk and walk out without paying. There is nothing she can do. If she makes a fuss, she loses her licence to trade. End of story.
Another friend was opening a restaurant in another city and needed a fire certificate. The entire fire department turned up (about 20 people), ate dinner and walked out. What could friend do? Nothing. She needs the fire certificate.
agree it does happen, but as a good citizen perhaps you could use your hand/mobile/cell phone to record such events and post them on Weibo? This seems to be a popular form of ‘vigilante’ justice nowadays in china, and elsewhere.
corruption exists in every country and sociiety. Go watch cbc.ca on your PC or whatever, and see corruption being exposed at various levels of the government, the number of mayors in Montreal that had to resign in the past year, the scandals of the current mayor in Toronto, and the ongoing scandals of the senators expense claims in the canadian political system.
Sorry if this is totally out of topic, but may be relevant if you are attending official dinners involving public figures. In 3 words, there is ; no free lunch, as everyone on this forum would know..
Unfortunately, the photos you had shown were not very appealing examples. But, i know the dishes you are referring to.
yes the photos may not be very appealing and are terrible photos, but they do convey what i know of those 2 common and very popular street foods. They are actually better than what i have taken, and that is why i dont post photos in my postings here. There seems to be an obsession with photos of food porn quality in this forum
