US beef? oh oh, big problem! pollution, cheap white rice, fake cheese, fake whole wheat bread,oily night market food, unclean tables, stress, overcrowding, dog shit on the road? oh oh, no problem.
taiwan is seriously blind!
i ate US beef for 30 years before moving here. i had few to no health problems. even when i lived in taipei, i was ok. after moving to xxx part of taiwan, i now suffer greatly.
the general uncleanliness, pollution, and diet down here is, i think, the number one reason. this place is a food desert, thanks to there being more restaurants than actual cooks.not everyone who opens a shop actually knows what he's doing. i've actually been unable to finish some food from these oily buffets, which are NOTHING like their taipei counterparts.
the main issue with this US beef thing is the pork farmers here are worried that the US will now import pork too.
well la-di-da! i WELCOME US pork over your slop fed, transported in UN-AIR CONDITIONED back of a pick up truck trychonosis inducing pig flesh ANYDAY!
i hope taiwan people get to enjoy some really GOOD beef for once in their lives, as well as some fine pork, real cheese, and all the things they work so hard for, but never get thanks to the greed of farmers and food producers here. down with all of them.
