I made a business trip to Malaysia in the mid-1990s. After business talks with the customer, we decided to have dinner at a Chinese restaurant. The customer ordered a variety of menus and had a delicious meal. There was a menu like chicken in it. When I ate it, it was not chicken, but I could taste the texture of meat. The customer was actually a vegetarian.
At that time, the word vegetarian was not so familiar. I only knew about eating mainly vegetables. I remember being impressed by a dish that used soy meat to make it look like meat.
