Is giving up a $150k Engineering job in Silicon Valley to move to HK a bad idea?

Eating out I prefer DinTaiFung and Crystal Jade as well as good clean mall restaurants like Nham Trang. But I must say the Vietnamese food in the Bay Area blows Nham Trang out of the water. Mickey D's, Pizza Hut and BLT Burger all are all acceptable. I focus on cleanliness, quality control and supply chain among other factors.
    Have you never observed that the guy who chops the meat does so without gloves and plays with his cell phone in between, which he probably aso used on the toilet ?
    That's why I never eat at such chains.

    I turn a blind eye to it. It does make me cringe but more local mom and pop places store their meat out in the alley. And I'm pretty sure at night, the rats run rampant because the cockroaches run free during the day sometimes.

    I like the mouth guards the workers wear at Fairwood. What I don't like is customers who can't wait patiently for their food breathing all over it and talking over my food if I don't grab it soon enough.

    So you cook all of your own food?

    Have you suffered from bad food poisoning in the past?

    Yes, most of the time. I don't like eating out.

    I also dont like washing of untensils and dishware at the local places. With Fairwood, I can ask for a takeaway box and plastic fork and disappear into the crowd to eat. With the local eateries you can ask for takeway but they will stare you down while you are eating it there if you do so. Not worth the scene IMO.

    A plastic fork - no chopsticks for you?

    Gawd, I miss the States. You can walk into a 7-11 in HK 10,000 times and not encounter something so entertaining. It's sort off off topic based on what the OP was inquiring about but he's gonna miss this if he moves to HK!
