Youthful chef Kimi, an experienced hotel chef and cooking instructor, has opened this international dining establishment, offering creative cuisine that mixes Eastern and Western styles. Options include pork chops, pasta entrees, daily-fresh pitas, and beef risotto. The American industrial-style decor includes pipes, faucets, helmets, desks, chairs and lamps. All of them are DIY. Customers can also sponsor cups hung on the walls, with all income from this donated to World Vision. --By Lin Fu-shan, translated by Angela Cheng
