--By Shanzi Chen, translated by Cara
This smart-looking restaurant was recently
opened in XiMenDing by the Meimen Qi-gong and Culture
Center. Teacher Lee Feng-San and his pupils use the
concepts and methodology of Qi-gong when providing food
and drink to the public. Meimen Inn is a place where
the "qi" energy field is strong, as the service
staff are all full-time volunteers as well as pupils
of Meimen. They channel their "qi" when preparing
the dishes and servicing customers, which is why the
meals here are known as "Kung Fu Meals". There
are four different kinds of set meals available here
(NT$320 to NT$380) as well as an a la carte menu. The
most time and effort consuming dishes are the soups.
All the ingredients are cooked over low heat for four
to six hours. The Fu De Quan Vegetable Soup takes eight
hours to cook. The methods used to chop the vegetables
as well as the sequence in which they are added to the
soup are all very important because the process has
a direct effect on the nutritional content of the soup.
The pupils of Meimen are all very talented and there
are also special performances during Friday and Saturday
