“Stir-fries” is one of Taiwanese local food, we have stir fried dishes with rice and beer with friends or family. I always love being my frds from Hong Kong or overseas to go to those stir-fries restaurants. This time me and my HK friends tried Central Market Stir fries.
位於台北一級熱炒戰區長安東路一段，其中一家常常爆滿的熱炒店就是這家。建議先訂位比較不用等。 Located at section 1, Chang An Road. Quite a lot of stir-fries restaurant here. But here should be the most popular one, full house every night.
We sat at the basement, less noisy compared with the ground floor. After ordering Taiwan beer we started to choose food on the ordering sheet.

炒龍鬚菜 Chayote leaves
這裏沒有我喜歡吃的山蘇，本想點炒水蓮但當天沒有，店員跟我說有過貓，更合我意。龍鬚菜又名過貓，是佛手瓜的植物部份。這裡加了破布子一起炒，有點特別，讓香港的朋友吃吃道地的台灣蔬菜。 Chayote leaves is a Taiwanese vegetable, recommend you to try some veggies here because many of the veggies dishes here are only found in Taiwan.
