INDIGENOUS FLAVORS AT MI HOO MI SANG

Words & Photos by Richard Matheson

       Mi Hoo Mi Sang, which means ¡§live well¡¨ in the Bunun aboriginal language, is a newly-opened and unassuming little restaurant just off Tainan¡¦s busy JinHua Road.

       The furniture consists of cheap folding tables and plastic stools; the decor amounts of a few pieces of aboriginal clothing tacked to thin veneer board. The kitchen is larger than the dining area.

       Fortunately, the food more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. And it seems that savings on decorating are passed on to the customer, via reasonable prices for excellent food.

      Wanee, Mi Hoo Mi Sang¡¦s chef and owner, is a Bunun aborigine originally a mountainous part of Kaohsiung County. He looks very young, and modestly says his aboriginal cooking is all self taught. But when pushed, he admits to having attained the second-highest cooking license in Taiwan, and has almost 10 years¡¦ experience cooking in restaurants.

       Traditional aboriginal dishes are the specialty here. Fried mountain boar, boar's skin, and river shrimp cost NT$100 for a small portion, NT$200 for a large portion. There's also freshwater fish (NT$150 to NT$250), and delicious barbequed pork.

       These are served alongside traditional Chinese fare such as rice and noodle dishes, soups and vegetables, and an excellent fried rice (NT$55).

       Wanee--whose Chinese name is Sun Rong-guang--also delivers, and handles large parties if arranged in advance.
