Photographer's Note

Baoji is a part of China that does not see much interest from the outside world, and hence it has maintained many of the traditional ways of doing things which are now looked down upon in the cities foreigners now visit.

Street food vendors are controlled, moved and even banned across some parts of China as the Chinese government views them as old fashioned, and something a modern China should be moving away from. Thankfully this has not happened in Baoji yet as they are great places where you can eat a good meal for less than 5RMB ($0.70)

They all cook from these coal burning stoves which are fanned from underneath by some sort of garden leaf blower, often with flames 3ft high when they remove the wok and burn about as hot as a blow torch. Great food though!
