What would make people want to queue up for
ages? What kind of great food has such a level of attraction?
You may find lines waiting outside any of the rather famous
Lemongrass Restaurants in Kaohsiung during meal times. Don't
expect to taste their delicious and healthy Lemongrass Hotpot
without at least half an hour's wait on weekends. The friendly
manager, Mr. Pan, explained that their uniquely refreshing
lemongrass hotpot is prepared daily using fresh vegetables,
the bones of a whole chicken, dried clams and lemongrass,
and takes hours to make. The fresh, sweet and non-greasy soup
base allows customers to enjoy a great tasting hotpot without
worrying too much about calories.
Apart from their Lemongrass Hotpot, they
are always bringing out new styles of soup bases, such as
the Mediterranean flavored Lemongrass Tomato Hotpot, the healthy
Chrysanthemum and Gouqi Hotpot, the Thai style Sour and Spicy
Hotpot and the Lemongrass Fermented Wine Hotpot and others.
There are ten different kinds of soup bases to choose from.
There are carefully selected healthy ingredients such as yams,
various types of mushrooms, low fat chicken, ostrich meat
(that is low in fat and high in iron), fresh deep sea fish
and other kinds of seafood, all in the name of letting customers
taste delicious food in a healthy way.
Many people come for the Lemongrass sauce
and the Lemongrass Green Tea they offer here. This restaurant
is one of the few restaurants that offer unlimited supply
of Lemongrass Green Tea. Their Fish Meat Hotpot (NT$240) is
highly recommended. Fish balls made from fresh squid and shrimps
are chewy and delicious. The Three Layered Meat Hotpot (NT$200),
the rich Seafood Hotpot (NT$260) and the Vegetarian Hotpot
are also worth trying. The Vegetarian Hotpot comes with almost
15 different kinds of vegetables and even includes some rather
Apart from healthy and delicious food, the
dining environment here is different from most hotpot restaurants
too. There are altogether four Lemongrass Restaurant branches
now, all of them decorated in different styles. Their bright,
spacious herb themed interior makes dining there a real pleasure.
