[quote=“alidarbac”]Fruit. I was never much of a fruit eater back home, but now I stop at a fruit stand before work and go nuts. Asian pears, lychees, nectarines, Japanese grapes, mangoes, green tangerines, bananas. I can spend up to 50-60NT/day on fruit depending if I go for the fancy stuff.
I do miss vegetables, though. I sure wish that at all of those cheap restaurants where you can 魯肉飯 or 雞肉飯 or fried noodles, etc. that you could also order a plate of lightly sauteed vegetables. Not that greasy slop that comes on the side of a biandang.
Other than that, it’s been noodles, noodles, dumplings, and more noodles for me.[/quote]
Most shops will serve steamed veggies if you ask for it. Or lightly boiled. I never have stir fried.
Also, a great source of daily veggies is to get a jinlitang at one of the Cottonfields around town. They pack a blender full of green leafy veggies, add a little nuts and pineapple, and a wheat grass liquid to make it into a shake. Delicious and soooooo nutritious. All organic too.
