        the character you have listed for #15 almond soy milk 否(fǒu) should actually read 杏 (xìng) since 杏仁 (xìngrén) is almond

        and, this is a great idea for a blog, I wish I would have had this when I first arrived, keep up the good work!

        Thanks a lot! I’ve updated it. I now realized that I confused 否 for 杏 which is why I never could make any sense of it.

    鍋貼 are potstickers. They are triangular shaped, unlike 水餃/dumplings.
