There were many who once worked in the ocean, who later returned to their seaside tribes to preserve the traditional process of making sea salt.
永福野店 Mornos Cuisine
The Mornos Cuisine mainly focuses on Amis culture and guiding sea salt workshops. In the past, it was very difficult to produce sea salt in the tribe. In order to preserve the Amis tradition of making salt, the Mornos Tribe leader, Tsai, would collect water from the ocean at dawn, and spend 8 hours slowly evaporating the water in a large pot, then slowly roast the salt in a smaller pot. Three years ago, they accidentally produced a low-sodium, and slightly sweet sea salt flakes. This led to the establishment of one of the only producers of sea salt flakes in the world, and the only one in Taiwan.
Besides providing sea salt workshops, Mornos cuisine also provides no-menu cuisine. Using locally sourced produce and fresh seafood, they created a “wild lunch”. If you visit Mornos Cuisine, you need to bring your own reusable cutlery, however if you do not bring your own, Mornos Cuisine provides Coconut shells as bowls. From the decorations to the food, to the cutlery, Mornos Cuisine will give you the opportunity to truly experience Amis culture.
