Ruwei is a Chinese oden made by simmering ingredients in a soy sauce-based broth with spices such as star anise and chinpi. It is loved as a cold dish in mainland China and as a street food in Taiwan, and the owner, Mr. Gao, serves it warm Taiwanese style. Boil it with 17 to 18 types of spices and herbs and leave it to marinate for at least 2 days. The ingredients, seasonings, and spices work together to create a deep, nourishing flavor that energizes you with every bite.
In the evening, in addition to the luwei that can be enjoyed individually, there is also a wide selection of Asian snacks such as shrimp wontons and cumin-grilled pork feet, making it perfect for a quick drink with friends.
