At the restaurant, local ingredients star in dishes such as the Five Flavour Filet Mignon where a steak is complemented by local mushroom, tomato and taro. The food also revolves around common Hakka cooking methods such as brewing and pickling. To enhance the dining experience during the pandemic, Liu came up with the concept of One Song One Dish, where each dish is accompanied by a song. It is all about bringing art, well-being and culture together in one regenerative experience.
Liu said: “It is about what [the guests] take with them when they leave. They can connect well with life, they can communicate well with the world to generate a more beautiful harmony in life.”
