cheap food

While eating 水饺 for dinner, I realized that I don’t like expensive food. Twelve 水饺 with 白菜肉 filling (dumplings with meat and lettuce, I think… I think 白菜 in these parts is not the same as the bok choy we are normally familiar with) cost 3 kuai. Three kuai! And they were good! Of course, I am partial to delicious bits of meat and vegetables wrapped in a thin layer of dough, but still… Compare that to the 107-kuai hot pot (for two people), or juk 粥 for 97 kuai (for two people). I mean, sure, the juk was good, and the meat was tasty and whatever, but was it 20 times as good??? I don’t think so.
