Taiwan Travel:Delicacy - Shang Shan Ruo Shui|TaiwanDay

Use Reservation System to Maintain the Quality

The name “Shang Shan Ruo Shui” is quoted from “The top virtue is like water” in Tao Te Ching. It shows the owner’s view of diet. She thinks that good food is like water, insipid but effective. She insists that the seasoning should not cover the original taste of the ingredients. Because her husband’s family operates a Chinese herbal medicine shop, they use the top shelf herbs. Her cooking skill is developed because of her love in medicinal food. At first, she treated her friends to prove the medicinal food can also be delicious. Her food became so popular that she opened this restaurant in 2012. Each dish is handmade by herself. To maintain the quality, she only accepts guests with reservations. “I don’t want the restaurant to be full every day,” she said.

Customized Health Preserving Soup

Go through the meandering road to “Shang Shan Ruo Shui,” you will see the red walls and wooden tables and chairs. A big calligraphy scroll is consistent with the signboard. They asked a master to write in semi-cursive script. The piece of work is classic and reflect the Zen spirit. There are only 12 seats, but there were once 20 guests who are willing to sit outside to taste the medicinal food.

Mina is familiar with Chinese herbal medicine. She integrates the dietary supplementation into daily meals so she’s always fit. Both the portion of herbal medicine and heat are important to transform the bitter herbal medicine into delicious dishes. Besides the soup for stomach, there is also soup for development and nourishing for those in need.

Menu of the Day

Heshouwu Chicken soup Set (600 NTD) with brown rice and sweet soup (the content varies from seasons)

Fried Pineapples with Black Fungus: Fry the soft and juicy pineapples and black fungus with ginger. The sweetness will be released. The color is appealing and appetizing.


Medicinal Wine Cooked Shrimps: Braise the herbal medicine first, and then put in the fresh shrimps. Turn off the fire after the shrimps turn red. Leave it in the fridge for one night. The sweet shrimp with the aroma of wine and herbal medicine is so marvelous.
