One of the greatest things about Taiwan is the local food here. This is not a food blog, but Renwu Raost Duck is too special not to blog about.
Renwu Raost Duck is a delicious roast duck place in Renwu District, Kaohsiung. It opens every day except Tuesday from 2:00 pm to 8:00pm. You can choose to either sit in the restaraunt or get takeout. The wait for the restaraunt is usually long, and so is the takeout line. There are tons of people waiting in line for this place every day.
2:00 pm to 8:00pm (closed Tuesdays)
Whole duck with wraps: 470 NT (15.40 USD)
Half duck with wraps: 240 NT (7.80 USD)

I used to live in Niaosong District, right next to Renwu. I've been here at least half a dozen times. Everyone in Kaohsiung knows that this is the best roast duck in town. No other roast duck I've eaten in Taiwan has come close.
The line of people when I went last month went around the building...
And kept going...
On the menu they sell whole roast duck (which is cut, insides and head are also fried to eat), half duck, tortilla, rice blood cake, and other vegetables.
The best part though is the sweet and savory sauce.
You put it together like this
What you get is a soft texture on the outside, a nice spicy crunch from the onion, duck meat smoked to perfection, all put together with a perfect sweet sauce. Take it down with a coke, and there is not much anything better in this world.
Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more of our adventures in Taiwan!
