Another typical thing here is that students often eat in plastic bags. I don’t know if they are aware that plastic bags are bad for the evironment, but they use a lot of them: for breakfast you can easily have 2 or 3 plastic bags, then for your drinks, then for your lunch that you bring to class, and then for your dinner. So usually you use at least 4 plastic bags per personn per day. Let’s say that there are 23 146 090 people in Taiwan, it makes 92 584 360 plastic bags used each day. That’s crazy.
Anyway, i’m not here to talk about that. I tried some food in a stall, where you pick what you want, they cook it for you, and then they directly put your food into the platic bag that they close. So you don’t have any plate, you directly eat in the plastic bag with the sauce in it. Nice. But that’s the only kind of restaurant where you can find vegetables that are not too oily and still affordable. And despite its look, that’s not bad actually.
