TREASURED VESSEL VEGETARIAN CUISINE

39, Lane 280 ,GuangFu South Rd., 1F

--By Shanzi Chen, translated by Cara Steenstra

Although the ZhongXiao East Road area has no shortage of pubs and restaurants, vegetarian restaurants are few and far between. Situated in a lane off GuangFu North Road, the elegant and comfortable Treasured Vessel Vegetarian Cuisine helps fill this gap as a new place for vegetarian food lovers to hang out at. Executive Chef Mr. Shu Jia-Jian was once the head chef at Jing Zhao Yin, and also previously worked as a chef at the President's residence. The experienced chef has created hundreds of different dishes using only the finest ingredients, paying attention to the modern-day healthy concept of using less oil, salt and sugar. Hou Tou mushrooms (literally "Monkey's Head" mushrooms) are the star attraction here, cooked in 10 different ways. One of these, known as the "delicious soup", has a broth with other mushrooms, lotus roots and seasonal vegetables in a nutritious, non-greasy soup. The restaurant offers set menus (NT$550-NT$680) that come with eight courses. Each course comes with two choices, with different dishes available every week. Afternoon teas sets are also available (tea and five tea snack courses for NT$250). Whether you're a vegetarian or not, this restaurant is well worth a try.
