VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS
Hua Yen Yun is definitely unique. With its antique furniture, lanterns
painted by ink-and-water master Ke Shuan-tung, and old photographs,
it is like stepping into a shop in old Beijing. The specialty at
Jing Hua Yen Yun is delicate pastries, including the highly recommended
crispy walnut duck flavor (NT$280). The mashed peas pastry, or Wan
Do Huang Er (NT$100), was an imperial favorite, particularly with
the Empress Dowager Tzu Xi (if legend is true). The lotus porridge
pastry (NT$120) is a favorite among women. The combination of lotus
seed and lotus rhizome is said to bring a glow to a woman's face.
Set meals (approximately NT$300) include appetizer, main dish, side
dishes, dessert and tea. There are also afternoon tea set meals
(NT$220) which include a choice of pastry and a pot of tea. All
this makes it a good alternative to a Western-style afternoon tea.
