A Journey of Transformation: The Inspiring Story Behind Yu Shan Ge

Eric Chen's journey to founding Yu Shan Ge is a testament to the power of faith, resilience, and culinary passion. Raised in the humble surroundings of southern Taiwan, Eric's life changed forever when a severe workplace accident left his father critically injured. As medical professionals struggled to offer hope, an unexpected source of solace emerged – his grandmother's profound faith.

In a moment of crisis, Eric's grandmother made a solemn vow to embrace Buddhist veganism. Whether through spiritual intervention or the strength of belief, a remarkable recovery began, defying medical expectations.

This pivotal experience left an indelible mark on Eric. Years later, prompted by a friend's introspective question about life's regrets, Eric found himself reflecting deeply on his purpose. Grateful for the blessings in his life, he felt compelled to give back to society in a meaningful way.

Leveraging his extensive experience in the food industry, Eric envisioned a sanctuary where nutritious, plant-based cuisine could nourish both body and spirit. This vision materialized in October 2004 with the establishment of Yu Shan Ge.

Today, Yu Shan Ge stands as a culinary haven where each dish is crafted with mindfulness, gratitude, and artistic flair. Here, vegetarian cuisine transcends mere sustenance, becoming a celebration of life's resilience and the transformative power of compassion.

We invite you to experience Yu Shan Ge – not just for a meal, but for a journey that honors the delicate balance between tradition and innovation, health and indulgence, and the profound connection between what we eat and how we live.
