False Advertisement

I was at the grocery store yesterday, and in the noodle aisle, I found a package that said 臺灣新竹米粉 (Taiwanese Xin-Tzu Rice Vermacelli). In Taiwan every town, every city has a food specialty (名產), and in Xin-Tzu (my childhood home) is famous for its vermacelli. I then looked at the package more closely and it said "made in China." I was so insulted that the company tried to pass off its vermacelli as the special vermacelli from Taiwan. BAH!! I don't want bootlegged noodles.

I got an awesome Chinese rice and noodles cookbook while I was in US. I'm hoping that I can find the ingredients here so I can try some of the dishes out. My mom flipped through cookbook, and now she wanted it too because of all the dishes she recognized.
