[color=blue]Having been in Korea the last 8 months, it was hard to find some Western vegetables, meat, potatoes etc… Resulting in an overdose of rice each day.
I was wondering how Taipei will be when relocating with wife & baby the following weeks. Is it as expensive as other major Asian cities?
What I wanted to know;
What Hypermarkets are available (CARREFOUR, Tesco, Metro…) and do they have imported goods, and if so, what about pricing? 50% more than local stuff, or even more?
Imagine we want to cook a normal Western meal for two persons, do we have to calculate 30 US$, 50 US$, or more for some imported stuff, or are prices reasonable, and which Hypermarket is recommendable?
Is it recommended to use a freezer to store big chunks of meat (if electricity does not cut off from time to time…)
I was paying 1 US$ for an apple, 3 US$ for Rhubarb jam, and even 5 US$ for peanut butter in a CARREFOUR in Korea… what was an average of 300% more than prices in Belgium
For sure, if Western food is as expensive, I guess I have to negotiate more salary with my employer
