I stopped on the side of the road in Taipei's Zhongzheng District and waited for a traffic light. Across the street I could see a diner. It was a very open-plan restaurant. There were no windows, or even an exterior wall to provide windows. The inside could be seen entirely from the outside. There were tables placed inside, and the kitchen could be seen in the back. And the menu was written on the back wall.
As is usual in Chinese restaurants, there are many menus in such a simple restaurant. Since Japan has been adopting Chinese characters since the 6th century, some of the Chinese characters used in Taiwan are also used in Japan. Chinese character in Taiwan is traditional Chinese characters, equivalent to the old character form, so some of them are a bit unfamiliar to me, but I can understand the meaning of most of them. However, it is difficult to understand what kind of food the menu represents.
There was a young woman in the dining room, eating in a relaxed atmosphere. On the other hand, a young woman with a parasol next to the restaurant was waiting for a traffic light, as was I. When I looked at her face, she seemed to be frowning a bit. Maybe she was hungry.
