--By Shanzi Chen, translated by Cara Steenstra

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 dinner hours.
