Miaoli Count Xihu Townshi

Secret Garden

Walking into the garden in the remote mountains, people desiring to contact nature can take a deep breath. There are numerous floral plants and herbs; Tian Ma Ma, Lihua XU is good at making the herbs into handmade dishes. She said, “cooking the fresh herbs with the food materials can best release the original aroma and flavor of the plants.”

Recalling her change from a floral farmer to a restaurant owner, she said there were days in the beginning that she felt frustrated, but she kept learning making cuisines and coffee, and getting licenses. She utilizes the skills she learned in the Tian Ma Ma program and now she has her unique point of view in choosing food materials and seasoning the dishes. Coffee she makes has brought working moms in the neighborhood to have a cup of coffee every morning before they set off to work.
In the day time there are butterflies and migratory birds to watch, and in the night time there are frogs croaking, cicadas singing, fire worms flying: there are different shows in the nature through out the year.

She is friendly and romantic that brings the dining environment a delightful atmosphere, and the classical music in the background that makes the dishes even more appetizing and helps digestion; the handmade desserts, handmade red rice cookies and the candied dates are all sourvnirs to bring home. The Harry Potter Doll in the restaurant is made of betel nuts- in Secret Garden, the muses of turning stones into gold are everywhere.

“Rosemarry Drumstick” and “Citronella Pork” are dishes she is very good at. “The Signature Hakka Stewed Duck in Soy Sauce ” looks like braised duck. The trick of making it scrupmtious is to steam the duck till cooked, then simmer with Hakka rice paste. Their home gardern is right behind the restaurant, so the vegetables are freshly picked and served that customers can enjoy a toxic free and healthy meal.
Lihua XU also invites friends to Secret Garden for the Secret Garden Feast in the summer vacation, and the invitation writes “In the scorching summer, we need to relax our body and mind, go to the nature for the natural breeze and embrace the nature.” As if I heard the cicadas and birds singing in Secret Garden as well as the gentle breeze in my face again.

1、廁所不提供衛生紙 2、洗手臺、廁所、淋浴間所有的水都黃黃的(營主說這是礦物質),原本四帳提供一桶所謂的山泉水經溝通後再送一桶共二桶 3、營區旁邊就是果園全都是爛掉的水果堆肥且蒼蠅一堆 真的不推!真的不推!真的不推!

環境很好 餐點很美味又豐富,建議帶寵物要帶提籃, 雖是露營區,但非狗狗友善餐廳,草原不能跑 餐廳無法進入,是有點傷心💔

A peaceful, nature place. The gress is very comfortable. It's really a good site to camp here, but the shower rooms are too far to go easily. Dishes are pretty distinctive. The price is a little high, but it can still be accepted. I recommend their Golden Apple, it's crispy and appetizing. Their attitude is good!
