Owner Luo Wen-guei, already very well-known as an educator, has opened this restaurant because he's also a gourmand. The acquarium by the entrance features live seafood, while the tasty-looking Cantonese cured meat displayed in the corner is the work of kitchen staff hired from Hong Kong. They prepare authentic Cantonese cuisine, hot pots, dim sum (for weekday lunch, holiday breakfast/lunch) and group set meals. --By Niang Chen, translated by Angel Pu
