Chinese street food: Shanghai, China



The Chinese Diet by in large is a healthy one that is well-balanced and contains a wide variety of vegetables, a small amount of dairy products and quite a bit of soybean. 
(Soybeans are very nutritious and also are a complete protein, carbohydrate and fat. In addition, they also contain a number of essential vitamins and minerals).
China, being one of the oldest civilizations, has an extensive variety of regional food with its own particular specialties. 
In covering a number of cuisines from around the world, the focus of street foods takes us to Shanghai, China which has its own cuisine compiled from surrounding regions like Jiangsu (uses large amounts of seafood and seasonal ingredients) and Zhejiang (known for making a roast chicken called a Beggar's Chicken; this cuisine uses seasonal, fresh ingredients).
Jian Bing, a breakfast crepe and a typical street food in this area, contains eggs, cilantro and scallions along with either a spicy Hoisin sauce or chili paste. See the video that better describes how it is made and a recipe that looks appealing from All Recipes.com.
