Family Sticky Rice Dumplings
171-2, Tzuoyingda Rd., TzuoYing, Kaohsiung City
Hours: 8am-12 midnight
and operated by the two Liu sisters, this laidback eatery serves
"rou-zong"--tamale-like sticky rice dumplings which contain
meat, mushrooms and other tasty morsels. The menu lists a few other
items, including sweet-and-sour soup, but the "rou-zong"
are the main draw. They're tasty, filling, and at NT$30 each, good
value for money. The coffee-shop-style ambiance is another attraction.
If it's a classic Taiwanese snack--a meal in itself, almost--that
you¡¦re after, without the bright-lights-and-blaring-TV sensory overload
that comes free at a good many local establishments, then this is
your place. You'll recognize it by the bunches of "rou-zong"
dangling out front. --By Steven Crook
