I just arrived in Taipei, where I will be for the next three weeks. But before I start on my slew of stories of night market treasures, the various cooling Taiwanese snacks, what’s around the market on this side of the Strait, and most anticipated of all, a documentation of a trip around the island, I wanted to share with you the beautiful green onions that were at the wet market in Guangzhou earlier this week. I just couldn’t wait any longer, because clearly neither could these onions. My go-to lady for greens told me they were young green onions, with tiny white heads and more mild and delicate than their robust elders.
I wonder if these have a specific name in English? Does anyone know? I hope they will still be at the markets when I return in July!
