Since we're talking beautiful images of street food, this seems as good a time as any for the sort of gentle reminder we try to limit to just a few times a year: We draw no advertising revenue from EatingAsia. But all of the images you see here or in our Zester Daily slide shows, or on Dave's brand-spanking-new professional website, or his photography blog or Photoshelter galleries, are available for purchase. Just hit the "Email me" link in the upper left hand corner (you can also purchase directly from the site on Photoshelter).
OK, enough of that. Now, hit the street and eat!
