Do you worry about "gutter oil"?

Jump to last reply

If you haven't seen this discussed:
"gutter oil — a potentially harmful blend of oil extracted from food waste, offal and the byproducts of tanneries."

I've never been too worried when eating overseas, even from street vendors. Nor have I given more than a moment's thought to food safety at restaurants anywhere, and I've survived quite nicely.

But I am wondering now about fried food in Hong Kong. Even if they don't use "gutter oil", maybe it's still gross? Would this change your eating habits on a trip to HK? Should I just try to forget about it?
