Food Parcels – Eat In or Take Away

Food Parcels, Bamboo Leaf, Street Vendor, Old Chongqing, China, Copyright Chris Gregory 2008

This is another image in my Old Chongqing street vendor collection.  Food is prepared in a similar way to this in many countries.  Here it was wrapped in bamboo leaves.  In Greece grape leaves are used, and in the Pacific islands it is banana leaves.  Food steamed on a bamboo basket placed in a wok is a common way of cooking food in China.
