Josh Edbrooke from Transition calls in to talk with ShaoLan about eating, something that is such an important part of life in Asia! In Western Countries, the most traditional time to have a feast is at Christmas, but as ShaoLan mentions, in Asia, it’s common to have feasts quite often. In fact, as Josh has discovered living in Taipei, eating out is quite a culture and it’s quite possible to have a feast in almost any part of the city at any time of day or night! Indeed, ShaoLan recalls her favorite place to feast in Taipei being a breakfast vegetarian buffet restaurant!
The way to say “feast” in Chinese is 大餐. The first character 大 means “big” and the second character 餐 means “meal.” Isn’t Chinese logical!!
