--By Mike Brown, translated by Annie Liu

Having started with a street cart in Kaohsiung County, Kuo Min Kan Restaurant (now in the YenCheng district) has come a long way in 55 years. Also featured in China Airlines' magazine and Japanese travel industry write-ups, this establishment with its mural and inviting fixtures is just shy of being frenetically busy on many occasions. The owner, Mr. Kuo, laments that it is unfortunate that "many foreigners living here may feel local eateries are not up to standard". This is certainly not the case with this highly frequented focal point of local cuisine. Here, triangular Glutinous Rice Dumplings Filled with Pork and covered with a rich sauce and fine peanut powder (NT$30) or a bowl of Glutinous Rice with Pork (NT$25), are big hits with regulars and newcomers alike. According to Mr. Kuo "traditional dishes such as these cannot be mass marketed, so they are decreasing in popularity as young customers' tastes and culinary trends change".
