[quote=“Bu Lai En”][quote]I would say chives were the regular “cong.” jiucai are similar but not quite the same?
what do you call those brian? I would have figured that was a proper English word for sure[/quote]
It was a serious question. I don’t know what a chive is. My wife showed me some yestreday “these are jiucai”, but I couldn’t taste them because they were in non-veggo noodles. I always thought a chive was a n American name for what people in NZ usually call spring opnion or maybe green onion, which I think is also called scallions. I’ve never been good with the (English) names of foods. I’ll try and search this.
yep, i was asking you seriously, always interested about differing vocabulary in the english-speaking world.
hmm scallions, ok. you may be right there that we would call those chives in the us, that was my first reaction.
