Visiting aboriginal restaurant in taipei

I wanted to visit some aboriginal restaurant in taipei...I have during my years observed some...
One is near to taipei 101...

Eventually we went back to the aboriginal restaurant in xinyi...
The walls had abiriginal looking paintings...
...it smelled like in NCTU DJs club...or atleast how it use to smell in there...
It turned out to be more of like a japanese:ish bar that there are many of in southern taipei...
But they had a "vuvu" on the menu...
It means grandma...most of my aboriginal friends has it...
After some time I finally got the meat...
I also passed by a wine store...there are many like this in taipei, but people seldom drink wine...2019 continues...
