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.

超級無敵不推的露營區 1 廁所在遙遠的角落 晚上根本不敢去 2 服務態度差 年輕老闆 老老闆說法不一 還氣噗噗 3 流理台的水是黃色還有雜質 店家解釋含有礦物質安心使用 那為何還備用5桶山泉水說給我們煮沸喝 4. 包A區 6帳加1個客廳帳根本是沒有縫隙剛剛好 沒有多餘的空間 24個人沒地方坐 是叫我們煮好端回帳篷內吃嗎? 店家解釋 土地是經過丈量不用爭辯 爛透

這樣的環境美歸美矣~但真的超累人的 一、光是廁所還是浴室和上下超不方便這個就我 封殺它了 二、停車位跟帳蓬是分開的,也是要經過很斜的草地上上下下,真的是累 廁所 、浴室離帳蓬滿遠的,尤其半夜要去都不敢去了,路途暗暗.... 三、荷塘區搭的下三帳,但無法額外多一個客廳帳,所以建議露友們前還是要確認區域是否為所需的 四、最後但為何還是給二星:勝在景美及冬天洗澡不太冷
