EEK!
I would not eat raw meat that has been un-refridgerated. Not at all.
I used to like to go to Sam Woo's; and Chinese New Year was special.
They had a meat shop on one side with whole cooked birds (ducks) and
half pigs hanging up. They also had a lot of dishes Americans don't eat,
like blood pudding. I passed on that, but the pork was very good.

Are you talking about Sam Wo's in San Francisco?
I've been in there and seen Edsel Fung* in action, but that was many years ago.
I didn't know they had moved until I looked them up on Wikipedia.
Rather than repeat the story, here it is the link,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Wo

*All these years I thought his name was Edsel Fong. Herb Caen often wrote about Edsel Fung's antics and I'm 99.9% sure Mr. Caen spelled it, Fong.
Oh, well. Learn something new every day.

Oh, this was decades ago in West Covina. not SF.
I think it was spelled Sam Woo. Big restaurant and meat shop and it would be
PACKED at 1 AM with Chinese people. I used to get the onions, tomatoes and
curry on rice dish because it was dirt cheep and they gave you a giant plate
piled high with rice and curry.

I have not been to SF in years, but I like a restaurant there called the
Golden Flower - Vietnamese food on Jackson Street. Their web page indicates
they are still in business. You can go there and get pho, shrimp rolls, and
that wonderful Vietnamese coffee that will blow your socks off.

The Sam Wo in SF seems to be open also. Seems it has quite a history.
Maybe this November I might go there. Their pictures look appetizing

One of the things I miss, as I retired to a very remote area, is all the ethnic foods available to my urban dwelling friends. I can get some pretty good food but the example I use is that it's about an hour and fifteen minutes to the nearest fast food, and that's only if I speed.

A guy at work grew up in the Philippines and never put his lunch on ice. Said that was the way he grew up and why change...

I'd get ill in Subic no matter how careful I was.

Even if you can't get the authentic ingredients, you can still cook things
in the style of a particular cuisine. For example, get some thin cut steak,
cabbage, bellpeppers, vegetable oil, garlic, pepper, and what ever else you
might like... cut the meat into long thin strips, shred the cabbage, chop the
peppers, put the minimum oil you can in a pan and viola - stir fry.
It doesn't have to be made with "Chinese" ingredients in a wok. Ramen noodles
or thin spaghetti can be used in lieu of rice noodles. Need a sauce? You can
do wonders with Campbells condensed soups as sauce, especially cream of
mushroom.

And if you want a good chuckle, Join a Pastafarian group and look at some of
our recipes. YAR!
