---By Steven Crook Translated by Annie Liu

Hud La Voos is an aboriginal-themed pub-restaurant run by the Sun sisters, who grew up in the mountains of Kaohsiung County. Housed in a 68-year-old building in a small alley not far from Tainan Railway Station, and colorfully decorated with paintings, carvings, and animal skulls, the pub serves up a number of exotic dishes, including baby hornet and mountain rat. Mountain Boar Skin (NT$250) is cooked in very hot water and served on a bed of ice. Mountain Boar Meat (NT$150 for a small serving, NT$300 for large) is cooked with satay sauce, garlic, ginger, hot peppers, and spring onions. Mountain boars differ from their lowland counterparts in that they have longer snouts and more prominent tusks. If you worry that by ordering mountain boar meat, you're encouraging hunting and environmental damage, don't -- the animals are not wild, but raised in captivity. Other dishes are priced from NT$100 to NT$400; large groups are advised to call a day or two before to make arrangements.
