At the top floor of the National Palace Museum is a teahouse restaurant called San-hsi-tang (三希堂), named after Emperor Qianlong’s private studio where he kept his most precious calligraphic scrolls.
If you manage to snag one of those coveted seats by the windows, you will be able to enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings.
The menu at San Xi Tang was largely uninteresting, and if not for the fact that we were dead tired after a day of shopping and walking in the museum, we would have gone elsewhere for a better meal!
Glutinous rice and porridge. At least the porridge tasted not too bad, although I am sure we could get much better things for cheaper outside.
San-hsi-tang (三希堂) is a good place to rest your tired body and feet when you are at the National Palace Museum. Food is so-so though although the environment is quite pleasant.
