Qian Ye Vegetarian Restaurant

Overall rating: 4.0 stars 1 Reviews
Buffet selection includes small salad bar and a few varieties of sushi/seaweed, noodles, vegetables, stews, dumplings, and bean curd dishes. Choice of white or brown rice. Egg dishes seem easy to spot and steer clear of. Not priced by weight, as in some other Taiwanese buffets - cashier looks at your selection and calculates a price. There's also a choice of soups (including Chinese herbal, and mixed fungi) that are priced separately. Lots of simple, but pleasant, fan-cooled seating on 2nd floor. Look for a sign in English "Vegetarian Rice Dumplings". Address in Chinese: 高雄市鹽埕區大義街131號. Price: Inexpensive more-less

Home never tasted so good!

Posted on 07 / 25 / 2010

Food here is marked by both its delicious home-cooked taste and its variety (the raw greens, sprouts, fruit, and brown rice offered me a way to offset the fat and sodium of other tasty little devils that now must be limited in my diet). The Chinese/English menu of buns, dumplings, and soups offered even more choices to explore (mushroom-filled bun was heavenly!). Warm, friendly service (yes - service in a self-serve shop!) matched the food's homey flavor. One staff member (who speaks English with native fluency) even maintains an informal information counter on events in Kaohsiung. Other busy, yet patient, staff angelically supported my feeble attempts to speak Chinese. The atmosphere is simple and relaxed: the spacious dining area (cooled by both fan and AC!) occasionally doubled as a hangout for students - and my own place to dream away a rainy day. Or, when the outdoors beckon, you can pack your meal and just walk 2 minutes to picnic at Love River.

There's no lack of choice of vegetarian eateries in Kaohsiung, yet the food, service, and atmosphere always lured me back to this eatery.

Pros: raw greens and fruit, savory dishes, friendly staff
Cons: not open 24/7
