Why Lan Jia Gua Bao restaurant is special ?

Gua Bao is a traditional Taiwanese snack made of a sliced hot steam bum with braised pork and parsley, peanut powder, and sauerkraut, which you cannot miss. Lan Jia Gua Bao is located in the prosperous section of Gongguan and has always been the favorite snack of NTU students. It has years of history and a unique taste.

Stuff slow-braised pork into a pita-like steamed bun with pickled mustard, cilantro leaves and peanuts pulverized with sugar and you’ve got gua bao, a snack often called a Taiwanese hamburger but actually more closely related to a southern American comfort food classic: the pulled pork sandwich.

Besides Gua Bao, Shi Shen Soup with Chinese medicine is one of the delicious foods visitors must taste.

The restaurant is known as the best place serving PORK BLOOD CAKE in town

On weekends and evenings, the queue snaking from Lan Jia Gua Bao, near Taipei University, can stretch half a block as staff work double time filling pillowy buns pulled from mammoth bamboo steamers with pork so tender it falls apart in succulent shreds. Specify fatty or lean meat and get your gua bao to go, or devour it inside alongside a bowl of the equally popular corn and pork rib soup.
