We know little of the language and nothing of the food. It’s all different food in the grocery stores, restaurants and street vendors. The only thing that looks the same are bakery items. I know some things are seafood, but what. I do not know. Some fruits and vegetables that are not wrapped up are recognizable. Almost everything on the shelf in the grocery store is in a plastic container, sealed plastic bag, or vacuum wrapped. The big drawback, no english on the package, so you do not know what is inside. What is really handy are that the convenient stores sell pre made meals in plastic containers that they heat up in a microwave for you. Almost all of them are some variation of rice or noodles mixed with fishes or meat and a concoction of vegetables. The takeout buffets are excellent too, because you can see the food and take a good guess at what it is.
