Lavender Garden has an astoundingly
peaceful location at the base of TienMu Trail.
After the tragic death of his son, owner Mr. Shen
came to contemplate the notion of karma and, to
help bring about good, he became a vegetarian.
Struck by the compassion of people in his time
of need, he wanted to share these principles with
others. He extends a truly heartfelt welcome and
encourages his guests to enjoy not only good vegetarian
food, but the garden, the music, and flowing water--all
to achieve an overall heart-warming effect. From
the menu the Seasonable Vegetable Shrimp Box (NT$180)
is enjoyed--a crisp dish served with a wonderfully
tangy sauce, bursting with fruity flavour. Thai
Style Pasta with Coconut Milk and Shrimp (NT$240)
also packs a spicy punch. Rice dishes, pastas
(both NT$160-220), salads, pizzas (NT$220) and
soups also feature. Savour afternoon tea in the
attractive garden, or the wonderful evening atmosphere,
in this exceptional setting.
