"Lohas" (lifestyle of health and sustainability) is a new concept originating overseas. It teaches love of personal health, organic food and promotion of activities aimed towards health and protection of the Earth. In response, the Ambassador Taipei Hotel has established Taiwan's first five-star organic restaurant in cooperation with Uni-President Organic Shop and Shou Fong Township Farmers' Association. Ingredients are carefully selected to create toxin-free organic dishes. During weekday lunch hours, there is a light meal salad bar (NT$450). Tuesday is Lady's Day, with a 10-percent discount. Organic Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays. The buffet is NT$680, and there is also a choice of three main courses, including Fillet Steak with Italian Style Herbs and Vegetable Sauce, Mediterranean Style Lamb Chops with Pesto Sauce, and British Style Roast Chicken with Rosemary. There is a 50-percent discount for kids and elderly before the end of June.
