A basket of roll dish has about ten tastes. Especially, apart from shrimp, pork meat, raw vegetable, etc., the shop owner adds white sticky rice and red sticky rice (rice wine). The material seems not to relate to roll dishes. But it is eating style of elders in the past. The owner explains that the elders in the past were very poor, just had rice wine fried that make the roll dish have sweet taste. Now the shop upgrades recipe by using rice wine. The rice wine has sweetness of fermented rice without sugar and the scent of original ferment. The persuasive advertisement seems to make the roll dish more attractive. For those who like sweet will choose white sticky rice. But perhaps the red sticky rice is more suitable with roll dishes because of its characteristic aromatic sour taste.
