Someone might scold me, why is there no rice in Xi’an? There are rice-restaurants everywhere!

Well, you are right.

But Shen Jia Ming, I am talking about the working meals of ordinary migrant workers who like to eat rice.

In a cheap stir-fry restaurant on the street, don’t you start at thirty or fifty if you order two dishes? For every working meal of thirty or fifty yuan, ordinary workers shout whether they can bear it or not~

For workers to eat work meals, the budget is less than 20 yuan, no more!

The same less than 20 yuan working meal, Xi’an is full of noodle restaurants, Liang Pi shops… The starting price of noodles is generally ten yuan and eleven yuan; Cheap Rou Jia Mo costs 8 to 10 yuan… So Roujiamo + Liangpi starts at 15 or 6 yuan, about 20 yuan…

And if you want to eat rice for less than 20 yuan, there are only two choices: the self-selected box lunch fast food, generally I choose two meat and two vegetarian, the basic price of whole Xi’an is about 13-14 yuan; or choose gai-jiao-fan(dishes cover on rice), about 15 to 30 or 40 yuan. Generally, I choose the boxed rice instead of the gai-jiao-fan, because the gai-jiao-fan is just one dish sprinkled on the rice, there are few kinds of dishes and the rice is oily.

Chairman Mao said that a meal requires four dishes and one soup! I thought it was very reasonable, so I chose two meat and two vegetables, the meat and vegetables are nutritionally matched, and the store usually also has a free seaweed egg drop soup – although it is basically similar to water, thank you It’s hot…and although the price of Xi’an box lunches is generally the same, the cooking level is all determined by heaven and depends on your fate…

In addition, there are many noodle restaurants in Xi’an, but there are many rice fast food (boxed lunches)… At noon, as a southerner who loves rice, I cannot afford to eat fried vegetables all the time. If you can’t find a fast food box restaurant, it’s all up to God to arrange it… In my experience, there is a 70-80% probability that you won’t be able to find it… Unless there is a fast food box restaurant near where you work…

Looking back at working in an electronic mall seven or eight years ago, I ate two meat and two vegetarian lunches every day at a fast food stall in a nearby food city for about seven or eight yuan. I was inexplicably happy… (I vaguely remember that the noodles were also about five, six or seven yuan.) This In just a few years, two meat and two vegetarians have risen from seven or eight yuan to thirteen or four yuan, which seems to have doubled! But the salary has not changed…heartbroken…

Fortunately, now I found that there are also boxed lunches in convenience stores… Uh, in fact, the essence is similar to rice bowls, and it’s just a dish… The chicken rice I eat every day is actually rice sprinkled with some chicken, diced potato, shredded carrots, etc. , Compared with the fast food box lunch in the fast food restaurant, the amount of the dishes is obviously less… After all, the profit of the convenience store is bigger.

But fortunately, convenience stores are everywhere, so I don’t have to worry about going out and sometimes I can’t find a lunch box fast food restaurant… If the amount of rice and vegetables is too small, it should be too small, just lose weight and eat 60-70% full. But the southerners dream of a dozen-yuan rice working meal! Some food is good, but what about bicycles? Southern migrant workers are tearful… humble…

At the end of the bullshit, I can’t help but sigh, when will I realize the freedom to eat work meals? If I want to eat thirty to fifty, I can eat thirty to fifty, and I am no longer stuck at a dozen or so?
