Stir-fried Water Spinach炒空心菜 (chǎo kōngxīncài) Water spinach is one of the great vegetable staples of Taiwan and southern China. This quick-growing leafy green when cooked right is a great combo of crunchy stems and tender leaves.
Cold Noodle Salad 台式涼麵 (táishì liàng miàn) Taiwan has many refreshing drinks, snacks and appetisers to keep you cool in summer, but actual cold meals are hard to find, so you can count this easy noodle salad with a tangy sesame dressing as a rarity.
Eggs 茶葉蛋 (cháyè dàn) A cheap snack food, found all over China. In spite of the name, tea is not the dominant flavour.
"Tea, although an Oriental,
Is a gentleman at least"
– G. K. Chesterton
