去英国之前可能很多人都在担心

“吃不惯那边的饭菜怎么办呀”

“据说英国菜很难吃的! "


Lots of people worry about

“What if I don't like English food?”

“it’s said that it’s terrible.”



因此有不少人都是做好了要自己开伙的决心才来英国的!我相信每一个身在英国的小伙伴都有躁动着的中餐魂却苦于不知道如何买菜,因此总是炒来炒去都是那几样:番茄炒蛋,炒包菜,咖喱土豆胡萝卜炖鸡肉(人称英国新东方烹饪学校第一课)


I believe that many were determined to cook by themselves. Before they come to the UK, as they love Chinese food deeply. But are bothered by not knowing how to do the shop, or can’t get rid of the limited dishes they could cook.



小编刚到英国的时候也确实过了很久菜色单调的日子。但渐渐地,也自己总结出了变着花样做中餐的方法。

I have been through that time when I was my first time in the UK.But gradually I found my way to cook my own Chinese.


今天就和大家分享一下,

怎样买菜能买出在中国的感觉~

Today we will talk about 

how to shop in a Chinese way in the UK.


探索中超

Explore Chinese Supermarket



中超,或者说亚洲超市,是全球亚裔在异乡落脚之后会去的第一站。在中超,你终于可以告别当地超市里千篇一律的印度米了。对于习惯了吃软糯的米饭的中国人来说,吃印度米煮出来的饭可以说是非常折磨肠胃。中超里通常都有不同品牌的大陆产大米,甚至还有台湾米日本米等适合亚洲口味的米。价格虽然比普通超市里的贵些,但为了自己能吃得舒舒服服,这点投资还是要有的。


Chinese supermarkets, or Asian supermarkets, are the places where all Asian would visit once they settled somewhere out of Asia. Here you could find Chinese rice rather than tough Indian rice, therefore say goodbye to stomach torment. In Chinese supermarket, many different brands of rice could be found, including those which are produced in Taiwan and Japan. They are a little bit more expensive though, it definitely worth if east-Asian rice could successfully comfort you.



此外,中超里会有各式各样的必备的酱料调味品火锅底料小菜腌制品干货还有半成食品速食品等。除了全球留学生的女神老干妈外,通常中超还会有韩式辣酱,日式照烧酱,泰式冬阴功酱,多多囤一些放在家里,换着花样烧菜不是梦~而英国超市没有的:肥牛肥羊,丸子,午餐肉等涮火锅必备,也都是可以在中超找到的~


Then, the condiments. You could find basically every kind of condiment you need to cook Chinese food, including instant food. Besides Chinese style chili sauce, there are also Korean chili sauce, Japanese teriyaki sauce and Thai Tom Yam Kung sauce. They would help with cooking in different style in your daily life. As for the materials which could barely found in local supermarket, like beef roll, meat ball, etc. for making hot pot, Chinese supermarkets were where you could buy them.



另外,不少中超都会在逢年过节出售一些节日食物,例如中秋节的月饼,端午节的粽子,还有冷冻饺子,汤圆什么的,千万不要错过~而且中超的零食也足够丰富多彩,从椰树椰汁维他柠檬茶,从卫龙辣条旺仔QQ糖,你总是能找到你最急切想吃的那一样的~      (就是投资会比较高了555555555)


Also, Chinese supermarket usually provides their consumers with festival food like moon cakes, Zong Zi and frozen dumplings. Chinese snacks are also abundantly sold in Chinese supermarket. Make sure you won’t miss them.


探索超市

Explore Local Supermarket



毕竟是在当地生活,当然还是要以当地超市为主了~而且全球化那么多年,不同饮食文化早已在形式上融合得几乎算是互通有无了。像土豆,包菜这样的流通全球的食材,肯定是大家的首选。


Local supermarkets are where we normally go to do the shopping. International food materials like potatoes, cabbages could be bought literally everywhere, which could also be used to cook Chinese food.



但偶尔我们也会想要吃一下那些“非常中国”的菜。大家肯定会想到去中超买,但其实,在中国人聚居地的超市(比如英国诺丁汉大学附近的Beeston),会专门进中国人爱吃的小白菜(pak choi)和菜心(choy sum)


But sometimes we would appreciate to eat something which is more “Chinese”. Actually, local supermarket in the community where gathers many Chinese people would provide Chinese vegetables like pak choi and choy sum. You don’t necessarily need to go to Chinese supermarket sometimes.


小编其实还在春节的时候逛超市

听到了sainsbury’s广播里播放的

Happy Chinese New Year的广播呢,

当时心里特别温暖。



但由于食用方法不同,我们通常会在英国买到很多尺寸尴尬的食材。比如,因为英国人爱吃切半油煎的小土豆,小土豆便占据了货架的半壁江山,想要找到适合做炒土豆丝的尺寸的土豆就比较难。除了尺寸之外,烹调习惯还会影响到某些商品的口感。在英国买的盒装猪肉都是被处理成细长条的,适合直接丢进平底锅煎的尺寸。比如我们在英国买到的猪肉会带着比较重的腥味,在烹饪之前需要过水仔细处理。


But normally we would by food materials in the sizes which are not really suitable for cooking Chinese food. For example, English potatoes are always too small; pork is never in a good smell and only suitable for fried in pan. These are all challenges.


有一次小编非常想吃菠菜,但是中超也买不到,超市里也没有,最后只好用超市里买的用来做沙拉的baby spinach leaf代替。吃起来是菠菜的味道没错,可是超大一包下锅以后就只剩下一筷子了。不过对于异乡求学的人来说,这已经是无上的满足啦~


Once I use baby spinach leaf to take the place of Chinese spinach when I really wished to have some. Not one hundred percent the same, but it is still very delightful for homesick people.



好啦,今天就分享这些咯~
