Yesterday I bought some food from a well known Asian MArket in town. I've only heard good things about it, so I didn't think twice. Only, I realized that two of the snacks I bought there are made with rice ( thai sweet rice dessert, and banana and sweet rice wrapped in a banana leaf and wrapped in saran wrap) and were displayed out in the open in the market place - not refrigerated. Do these things need to be refrigerated, or do the market people know whether the stuff put in the rice keeps it from going bad at room temperature for a few hours? I never have had any of the stuff and put it in the fridge overnight anyway, but I'm wondering if it's safe to eat. |
What do you guys think? Will I poison myself if I eat some of the stuff for breakfast? And did the marketplace owners put the rice dishes out because they knew they wouldn't go bad, or what? :(
EDIT: I tried a bite but it didn't taste very good (I think it was mislabeled, since there was no banana and only some strange ingredient I didn't recognize) so I didn't eat the rest :( So much for that.
