Gangshan Travels

Hey Michael, have you ever had luwei?
What’s luwei?
Luwei is meats, tofu and eggs stewed in soy sauce and Chinese herbs.
Wow. Will it make me taller and thinner?
Let’s try and ?nd out. O? to Gangshan we go.
Let s go.
“Luwei” is food stewed in a soy sauce and medicinal herb broth. It s usually sold in night markets, the usual kinds you ll ?nd include chicken feet, duck heads...
Pork knuckle, pork stomach, eggs, tofu to begin with. And then we also have mullet, shishamo and tilapia.
Chen Siou-cing started out with just a stall in the night market. Then she expanded, opened a luwei company and factory. Now the company even exports luwei snacks and holds DIY workshops for visitors.
When in Gangshan, you have to eat goat.
Really?
What would I tell my wife if we didn’t?
Isn’t your wife vegetarian?
Wait, you don’t like goat either.
Maybe after I have goat in Gangshan, I’ll end up loving goat.
The truth is, neither one of us like goat, but when in Gangshan, apparently you have to eat goat. How about some goat marrow, Michael?
Get a little bit of the sauce.
It’s rather fatty.
Yes, fatty. Very sweet.
Now I can say, I’ve sucked bone marrow.
Next time I come to Gangshan, I’ll just stick to luwei.
I don t actually eat luwei very often, and I didn’t even know how it was made, so it was a good opportunity. I also enjoyed learning about Gangshan, I ride through here a lot on my bike and I never realized there were so many interesting things in Gangshan.
Like goat cuisine.
Like goat cuisine. The center of goat cuisine in Taiwan is here.

 

高雄岡山特色美食之旅

Michael, 你有沒有吃過滷味?
什麼是滷味?
就是放在醬油和中藥材裡面滷的食物。
會讓我長高,變瘦嗎?
吃吃看囉。來去岡山。
走。
在醬油和中藥材滷著,這種美食通常是在夜市裡面販售。通常看到的項目有雞腳、鴨頭…
豬腳,豬肚,鐵蛋,豆干是基本的,還有比較特別的就是烏魚,柳葉魚,還有台灣鯛我們也有滷。
老闆娘原先在夜市裡面賣滷味,後來擴展到創辦了滷味公司,開工廠,現在不但外銷滷味,還舉辦DIY課程給遊客體驗製作滷味。
來到岡山,一定要吃羊肉。
是嗎?
不然沒辦法跟我太太交代啊。
你太太不是吃素?
等一下,你也不喜歡羊肉啊。
說不定吃完了岡山的羊肉,從此以後就會愛上羊肉。
其實我們兩個都不喜歡吃羊肉,不過來到這裡,看來一定要吃。要不要來點骨髓啊?
沾一點佐料,在裡面。
好像肥肥的。
肥肥的,對。很甜。
不過把這個吸完就可以說『我吸過了』。
下次來岡山,我看我吃滷味就好了。
其實我很少吃滷味,也不知道是怎麼做的,所以這是個不錯的學習機會。來認識岡山也蠻有趣的。我常常騎著腳踏車經過這哩,根本不知道岡山有這麼多有趣的東西。

像羊料理。台灣羊料理的重鎮。
