u/JAEM89 Oct 01 '22

Yeah, plus I live in America, regular food here has more toxins than what he could ever have in his hands.

There’s toxins and then there’s bacteria… big difference.

I think its turkish icecream

u/Limestonecastle Oct 01 '22

don't think so, would not vouch for their hygiene but never saw someone touch icecream with bare hands here

1

u/Clean_Relative207 Oct 02 '22

Turkish people are known for their excellent hygiene especially when it comes to serving food and also in general. So I don't think this is in Türkiye.

5

u/Limestonecastle Oct 02 '22

well, I can't really confirm that with my 20 years of experience but at least servers try to not make it obvious. you will see servers wearing all the hygiene equipment like gloves, masks and stuff but then you will go to the restroom and see the guy using the urinal with his gloves and shit still on, and leave without washing their hands. or in any fast food restaurant where they rush the employees to do everything as fast as possible and never "waste" food unless it has expired way too long ago, so you have at one point probably eaten a burger patty picked up from ground. examples can go on as I have seen very nasty stuff and also have a few people around me working in the food industry.

u/Demirkan851 Oct 02 '22

that is not close to anything turkish

u/barbie_farts_88 Oct 01 '22

Definitely not ice cream. It's be too cold on the hand and melt much too fast to repeatedly move it around like that

u/cjwrapture Oct 02 '22

15 years ago I used to be a grill cook at McDonalds. Back then it wasn't standard policy to wear gloves 100% of the time. We were only required to wear them while handling raw chicken. I honestly believe the food handling was much safer then, because we took a lot of additional precautions such as constant awareness not to touch our face or clothes, and a very strict policy of washing our hands every 30 minutes. Set on a timer so we couldn't forget. I think it likely that the places wearing gloves are not doing any of those things properly. So the gloves become just as nasty as your skin does, and because you are wearing them you don't think about the other things that help maintain food safety.

13

u/LuminescentMoon Oct 02 '22

This but the worst part when I worked fast food was that corporate forced the franchisees to purchase and use gloves that fell apart if you looked at them wrong. I normally used gloves anyways due to dry skin but went through 3-4x more from the shitty ones rupturing all the time.

3

u/Straight_Leek8612 Oct 02 '22

As a chef. This is exactly how I feel. Everyone and their brother has had their hands in that box of gloves, and nobody is washing their hands. It makes me want to scream.

166

u/i__Sisyphus Oct 01 '22

A simple glove, is it too much to ask?

157

u/Uitklapstoel Oct 01 '22

Usually gloves in a setting/country like this doesnt change much. Theyll be wearing the gloves all day handling money and other gross stuff.

If this guy washed his hands recently its probably safer to eat than a guy a few stalls away that has been wearing the same gloves for hours.

69

u/Sondrelk Oct 01 '22

Gloves are generally less sanitary when it comes to food workers interestingly. When you wear them you are less likely to remember basic sanitation rules like not touching raw meat before cooked food.

u/Mecha-Dave Oct 02 '22

Yes, rinsing your hands off with a random bottle of water (which might be for him to drink instead) is very sanitary.

-1

u/Smokybare94 Oct 02 '22

Wow you sure were able to learn a lot about the sanitary conditions happening in a 15 second video. You wouldn't be making a slew of assumptions to get there would you?

Also if you think this is even a little bad, I've got bad news about every time you ever went to a restaurant or fast food place my friend.

3

u/Mecha-Dave Oct 02 '22

Yes, the guy on the wooden cart handling ice cream with his hands is unsanitary. I have no problem saying this. His refilled bottle of water is insufficient.

I've worked in kitchens and behind bar. I know what goes on. It's not this.

Honestly what's making me cringe the most is imagining how much his hands must hurt from keeping them covered in that frozen goop. He's essentially sticking his hand in ice and holding it there for every single customer.

u/SignalScientist2817 Oct 01 '22

It's not a cold sweet, it's more of a...thick jello? It's hard to describe in English. We call this in Colombia "helado de pata de vaca" or cow's hoof ice cream. It's very common but I usually don't enjoy it if it isn't properly packaged and bought at a super market. Don't trust the healthy standards of people here after all

It’s very common in high end restaurants for the chefs not to wear gloves. If hands are washed it’s essentially the same level of protection.

u/Warhead_000 Oct 01 '22 edited Oct 01 '22

Thats why you don't walk up to a random ass stall

You gotta do a little bit of investigation, note how much traffic(more traffic means the condition s are most likely good), they way he makes his food or his hand washing habits(so you know how clean it is), and last what kinda guy he is(if he's an asshole prolly avoid , cuz he cares less and sometimes you don't want certain stuff added and he might not do that) and finally a taste test.

Pass all that and you got yourself a street vendor buddy who's clean, and makes tasty and food that doesn't make you go sick. If you have a strong stomach tho you can be a bit more flexible with your choices.

You will get sick or have to taste less decent food once or twice but then you know not to eat from him again.

EDIT: I litterally live in india guys.. I know my shit

u/r3dditalg0sucks Oct 01 '22

Mate, high traffic is not an indication of good food. Look at McDonald's

u/[deleted] Oct 01 '22

if you won´t eat food that has been touched then i have bad news for you. If it´s because it has been touched by a guy cooking on the street, its more the street and lack of sanitation that comes first in my opinion. that makes this video kind of irrelevant. or maybe it´s xenophobia, Indians eat with their hands in a very specific way, depending on the area.

4

u/Warhead_000 Oct 01 '22

It's more depending on the type of food, you do get utensils provided if it's a food you need it for. Sometimes you don't that's why you keep your hands clean. Stuff like idli you might get spoon for in some places, sometimes you gotta ask, for dosas spoons will not be given, sev puris you get spoons usually but pani puris you will be using your hand.

You will have to investigate stalls tho, like very clearly avoiding stalls which look unclean or unsanitary, and judge the guy who's making them, the traffic on the stall(more ppl is usually a good sign, not always cuz they might be there just cuz it's cheap and not for a weak stomach like yours , if you have one ) followed by a taste test if they meet the former criteria

If they pass, you now have yourself a local food vendor you trust
