Meidz Seafood, a 30-year-old restaurant, is located in Shalu District in Taichung City. The first generation owner, Mr. Li Qing Rong, built Meidz Seafood from the ground up. What started off as a small street vendor has transformed into an exquisite and reasonably sized seafood restaurant. Although it is run by the second generation, the quality and the taste remains the same.
Back in 1986, Shalu was a busy clothing wholesale market. People came in droves to do business around the area and thata��s where Meidz Seafood laid its foundation. About eight years ago, Li Qing Rong and his wife considered retiring from the restaurant business. But due to popular demand from longtime customers, the couple asked their three sons to take over the family business. With the eldest son taking care of the purchasing, the second son doing the marketing, and the third son as the main chef, Meidz Seafood is able to get the freshest seafood from both Taichung and Penghu. The restaurant is located near the Port of Taichung and the Li family also has relatives who own a boat in Penghu.
Apart from the signature dishes like Meidza��s white pomfret, white pomfret rice vermicelli, deep-fried oysters and seafood chow mein etc, the second generation has created some original fusion dishes. The three brothers always took their parentsa�� words to heart. a�?Always make something for your customers that you, yourself, would eat and want to eat,a�? said their parents. Li Qing Rong would remind his sons that “we don’t need five-star chefs. Listen to the customersa�� wishes and make it happen. If we can do that, then we are the five-star chefs. If we don’t listen to our customers, the restaurant wona��t last long.a�? In order to understand the customers’ tastes, the three brothers make sure to see things from the customers’ point of view. This created a friendly relationship between Meidz Seafood and their customers.
Over the years, Meidz Seafood has earned the customera��s trust. Customers will keep coming back and would recommend Meidz Seafood to their friends too. The customers can always be assured that they are getting a high-quality, healthy, and satisfying meal. Meidz seafood holds the belief that as long as the customers are satisfied and happy with the food, the business will continue to grow.
