Ancient house moved from Anhui Province, mainland China

It is utterly unbelievable that the ancient building with white walls and gray bricks has been moved here from Anhui Province, mainland China! The owners of the restaurant, a couple, set their heart on the 200-year-old house when they first saw it in Anhui Province. They moved it back in parts to Guanyin District, Taoyuan, and had professional architects sketched and constructed the house so as to match its original version. It took them almost a full year to complete the construction. Inside the house, it was furnished with antique furniture and a 400-year-old Buddha statue from Shaxi Province, China. The house was originally made for the ownera��s own use. Only later did they decide to open it to the public, and operate as an antique and cultural vegetarian restaurant.

The couple had been running an antique furniture business in Taipei. However, the cruelty and stress of city life put them up with the idea to lead easy and simple lives in the countryside. It started off as a private residency, which sometimes enjoyed the company of friends. The more friends they invited, the more people told them that such fine and comfortable place should be shared to the public. With a bit of simple meals could make it even more perfect. Coordinated with another couple interested in the business, the owners started operating Shueilai as a vegetarian restaurant. One couple is in charge of the kitchen, while the other pair commands the front of the house. Together they decided that the restaurant will mainly serve seasonal food grown locally, and will not use processed food products. This became one of the main highlights of Shueilai a�� fresh, creative and healthy delicacies.
