Buddhist run vegetarian all-you-can-eat buffet

MiàoYīn (妙音健康素食自助餐) is a Buddhist run vegetarian buffet.

Pay NT$80 at the counter to receive a plate and you can take as many trips to the buffet as you like. There's also soup and usually a sweet drink/soup (basil seed, or mung bean and barley) next to the rice.

They have about 20 dishes, some of which change slightly from day to day, but most of them are always there. There's always several tofu and bean curd sheet dishes, and a few fake meat dishes, as well as a mild curry, stewed pumpkin, noodles, lotus, and cabbage dishes.

The food isn't always hot, but the rice is and the soups and stews are in pots over burners.

You can also get take away in a box, priced by weight.

Like many local restaurants, it is open for lunch, then closes for a few hours before reopening for dinner.

For the price, MiaoYin can't be beat. I (almost) felt bad going up for my third serving after giving them just NT$80, and it's nice to be able to visit a buffet that's all you can eat and isn't affiliated with the "Supreme Master".

The food could be warmer, and many dishes are just small variations on the same theme, but as a tofu, bean curd sheet (腐皮, fǔ pí), and fake meat lover, I was very happy to randomly stumble upon MiaoYin.

Directions

MiaoYin isn't far from HéPíng Road and ChongQing Road (or ZhòngQìng, as it should be written in pinyin), where ZhōngZhèng Bridge starts. Guting would be the closest MRT stop.

The street address in Chinese is 193號, 汀洲路, 一段.

Look for a yellow sign with red writing on it - it has both a swastika 卐 and the common word for vegetarian (sù 素) on it.
