As the sun goes down, the cafeterias and food stalls in the city of Tainan come alive. It was time for dinner. Of course, eating a meal is an important thing for people of all countries. But I don't think there is anyone who places as much importance on it as the Chinese. I feel that the enthusiasm that people in the Chinese cultural sphere put into their meals is not even close to that of the Japanese.
As I was looking at the people at the stall on the sidewalk, I saw a woman wearing a helmet. She must have ridden her scooter to this stall to eat. The young woman was holding a metal tray in her hand, and she was nonchalantly selecting side dishes from the stalls.
If it were me, I would have been thrilled to see so many side dishes, but unlike me, the woman's heart did not seem to dance. For this woman, it was a matter of course to see a variety of side dishes lined up, even at a plain food stall on a street corner. In fact, the Chinese food culture with its delicious-looking side dishes belongs to the minority in the world, but people who are immersed in that culture don't easily understand that. It is difficult to look at one's own culture dispassionately.
