Whichever country we are in this world, we cannot deny that food is part of our life. Especially when living in a foreign country, food can be an issue although I sometimes love food adventure. It is still fresh in my mind how I spent my first month in Taiwan eating food from convenience stores, such as 7-11 and Family Mart. Thank God they saved me :D The problem is, I was lack of Mandarin skill and we have a different food culture.
I noticed one very interesting thing here. There are so many drink shops around. They may have more than 10 or even 20 kinds of drink on the menu. Moreover, they even sell more than 10 kinds of tea drink alone, not to mention the juice. I just had a glass of Bubble Milk Tea in the afternoon and Rose Milk Tea after dinner today.
To give you an idea about the food and drink in my area, I have collected several menus from restaurants and drink shops since a week ago. You may find several kinds of food on the images below - Taiwanese food and foreign food. You may also take this as a Chinese Mandarin reading practice. Prices are listed in the menu alongside the food names for your reference.
Have you ever learned Chinese? Thanks for reading. Feel free to share this article if you like. If you have any opinions, please leave a comment. I love reading them.
