Bamboo Stalk Rice

I’ve done some food photography for local restaurants and I’ve always been interested in how food is presented so they look the best.

This is a traditional Taiwanese street food presented in a food court. it is short grain rice cooked with a basic meat sauce in a round container. In the old days the container was bamboo stalk, these days is a stainless cup. However, the presentation has remained ┬ásimple and elegant. Who’d thought this is just simple street food?

Some of the Asian restaurants I’ve worked with should take notes. ­čÖé
