I've never had any language issues in China, so I can't fully appreciate what it's like getting around here without being able to read/speak, but I have had good luck with the map thing in countries where I couldn't read/speak a single word.

With respect to Shenzhen restaurants, I must admit that I love a lot of expat places down there; Bubba Mac's is my favorite Western bbq place in China (even better than Home Plate), for example. And, if I have something important to do the following day, I'd rather not roll the dice on questionable meats or 地沟油. You might describe this is as "fear", but to me it's more about risk aversion based on historical evidence.
