YFY Biotech is the only U.S. QCS-recognized organic farm in I-lan. Adopting the idea of LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability), managing director Stephanie Ho takes organic ingredients from farm to table. She knows the best way to taste organic ingredients is through a simple hot pot, which prevents excessive processing or seasoning and maintains original flavors. The broth flavors include Chicken Consomme, Star Aanise & Cumin Seed Consomme, Dried Bonito & Kombu (seaweed) Soup, Herb & Fish Consomme, and Organic Vegetable Consomme. They may seem insipid, but the aftertaste is quite pleasing. Qi-Min caters best to personal set meals, and the hot pot selection alters according to the season. Prices range from NT$680 for the Strictly-Picked Vegetable, to the Matsusaka Pork set-meal and Huoshan Shihu Chicken meal for two, which is NT$2,500. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee

B. Fresh fish, caught in the outer seas off Keelung, are tested for heavy metals and strictly selected before being served at the table.
