During a trip to Japan, the owner of Redowber fell in love with a certain type of pastry--the Hokkaido cake. He decided to start importing these cakes to Taiwan, so people here could try them as well. They became a hit on the cyber market and now are sold in Redowber, along with dairy products imported from Hokkaido, Japanese frozen foods and a range of iced drinks and treats. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
