Can we say:

"Is there any place to sell Korean food and beverage?"
"Is there any place to sell hamburgers around here?"

instead of:

"Is there any place which/that sells Korean food and beverage?"
"Is there any place which/that sells hamburgers around here?"

like in this link: http://www.grammaring.com/the-to-infinitive-to-replace-a-relative-clause

  • It depends. Are you selling X or buying X?

The basic meaning of "Is there any place to sell hamburgers around here" would be "Is there a place where I can sell my hamburgers". That is such a strange thing to ask that I would probably be quite confused.

You can ask:

Is there any place to buy hamburgers?

which has roughly the same meaning as:

Is there any place that sells hamburgers?

"Is there anyplace to sell (something)" means that you are the one who wants to do the selling.

Is there anyplace to sell my used car around here?

Since you want to buy, you ask if there is anyplace that sells.

The link you give does not apply to your example, as it does not meet the three mentioned criteria.

  • I agree and upvoted, but don't much think this is an ask. It's really a question.
