Though translating bawan (肉丸, rouwan in Chinese) from Taiwanese to English will give you “meatball,” in reality bawan is a glutinous wrapper encasing ground meat, served with a sweet and salty – occasionally cloying – red sauce and parsley. One I ate in Jiu Fen, about an hour outside of Taipei, had a reddish hue from red spices mixed into the meat filling and combined bawan‘s spicy, savory, and sweet flavors perfectly.
