Near the Confucius Temple, Humane Kitchen stands out as a restaurant for the stomach and for the eyes as well. An art gallery, restaurant, and open studio rolled in one, Humane Kitchen stimulates not only your taste buds, but also the artist in you. Owner-artist Bruce Li originally bought the 80-year old building, former home of renowned photographer Ke Shi Jie, to serve as his own personal art studio. He soon found the two-story space too big, and decided to convert it into an art gallery and restaurant.

Today, the first floor serves as the exhibition gallery, displaying a wide collection of artwork by local and international artists. Exhibitions are free and rotate monthly, ranging from photography, and sculptures, to modern decor, on display this May. The building itself is also a work of art, uniquely renovated and decorated to retain its original architecture and character. An 80-year-old carambola tree shades the outdoor courtyard. A wide range of food and drink is served, including sandwiches, curried rice, porridge, teas and alcoholic beverages (NT$35 to NT$150). Specialties include the milk tea and lavender milk tea. Bruce welcomes submissions of artwork.
