Shot at Chenggong Market in Taipei, Taiwan.
Not only perishable foods but also prepared foods were sold in the market. The woman in this photo worked in one of the shops selling prepared foods. She was just making Jiaozi in the storefront when I came here. A bowl filled with the content of Jiaozi was placed on the table and a plastic tray was seen beside it. She spooned up the content and wrapped with the dumpling skin one after another. On her red apron, the logo and name of this market were printed.
Watching her skilfull behavior, she noticed me in the meantime. She stopped working and started to throw a deuce with a smile.
This food is also common in Japan. Yet there is a slight difference. Interestingly, boiled dumplings are popular in Chinese culture, whereas Pan-fried dumplings are popular in Japan.
