food markets and street eats! ^_^

I thought you might be interested on how chinese people buy groceries/foods. So, I decided to make a post about food markets and street eats.
We have big supermarkets, but 90% of people prefer to buy groceries in food markets. You can find fresh veggies
fresh bamboos (my favorites)
poultry (super fresh and live)
fish/seafood, also super fresh and live
dry seafoodsoy productsThere is also stand that makes dishes for you. You buy the main ingredients and they cook for you. For example, fried fish. He first fries the fish
put them in the sauce and marinate for 5 min
it's delicious!!!
Also, sometimes you can find stands of veggies/fruits on the street.
Street food is common at night.
grilled meat/chicken/seafood.
A couple who make different kinds of stir-fry noodles. We bought from them

more street food
look how many people on the street
this is a typical food/snacks stores. These are dry mushrooms, fruits, seafood.
more candies
dry fruits (most of them seasoned)

okay. this is a short post. I'm with the boyfriend right now in Hyatt hotel, enjoying the view from 73th floor. hahhaha....... be jealous!!! ^_^

OOh I love the produce! What a gift to be able to buy it without going to the store - just walk down the street and load up!

Your blog is so much fun to read! It TOTALLY makes me miss home (i grew up in HK and have family in Taiwan) but now that I'm stuck in the US I guess I have to live vicariously through blogs like yours and eat a lot of the stuff it looks like you eat (haha like oatmeal! yum!). Keep up you wonderful blog and thank you!! :)
