Food safety- Thailand, Vietnam and Laos?

Jump to last reply

I am heading for Southeast Asia next month. My last trip to this part of the world ended early when I got ecoli food poisoning in southern China and ended up in a hospital in Hong Kong. Thus, despite the lure of what looks to be wonderful street food in these countries, I plan to be very cautious. I am puzzled as to what I can safely eat in restaurants- am I really limited to things that are baked or peeled ? I would love to hear advice on this. Thank you!!
