Inside and out, Ruo Shui Tea House looks
no different from most teahouses. The interior is spacious,
decorated with Chinese-style knick-knacks and calligraphy
scrolls, making it hard to imagine that this place serves
vegetarian cuisine. The owner says that he opened a vegetarian
restaurant simply because his family members are all vegetarians.
Apart from the usual tea drinks (NT$30-NT$60) and flower teas
(NT$120), there are also dim sum, noodle and rice dishes available,
including dishes suitable for lacto-ovo vegetarians. Popular
dishes included Spicy and Sour Soup Dumplings (NT$70), Sesame
Oil Noodles in Soup (NT$50), Medicinal/ Delicate/ Miso Hot
Pots (NT$150) and Curry Fried Rice (NT$70). Dim Sum dishes
include their homemade Pickled Vegetables (NT$45), Deep Fried
Tofu (NT$45) and others. Savory Glutinous Rice Balls (NT$50)
is also a favorite among customers. Smoking is allowed in
the outdoor area and they also provide a food delivery service.
