We concluded that this restaurant serves good quality Taiwanese food In a Japanese setting. Good service and serves high quality of food and sake. Understandably, their English is limited and observed that the locals do come here to eat - a good sign.

Description
Fireweeds is housed in an old wooden house built during the time of Japanese colonization in Taiwan. The previous occupant of this house was Professor Yu Ling Chen (1921/5/20~1996/5/15) with the Agricultural Chemistry Department of National Taiwan University. Professor Chen dedicated over half a century’s time on teaching and studies related to the ecology of weeds and agricultural control of weeds. In Fireweeds, through the food we hope to call back the olden days in southern Taipei. In the evening, after dusk, leave your tiredness and noises out of the doors of Fireweeds. In an old wooden house, a couple or more acquaintances, half a dozen drinks, a number of dishes, eat, drink and be merry. Payment methods: Cash, Visa, Mastercard, JCB
