In the world of 菜饭 terminology, what exactly is an egg classified as – is it considered a “veg” dish or a “meat” dish?
Has anyone ever thought about this?
I suppose all food can be classified as “veg” or “meat”…except an egg.
If you say it’s a “veg”, then er…I have serious problems rationalising how an egg can be a form of veg.
If you say it’s a “meat”, then er…I don’t exactly think an egg resembles meat in any way.
The only valid argument you could make is that an egg is “potential meat”.
