Located in a quiet village right by the Zhong Zhou Ferry Station (中洲渡船頭), the Seashore Seafood (海濱海產) is an ordinary restaurant with an extraordinary story.
The home-style restaurant is locally owned by Mr. Chuang (莊明祥), Mrs. Chuang (張素霞) and their son (莊俊立). Coming from generations of fishermen, Mr. Chuang is a seafood expert. His knowledge and passion for seafood is reflected in the popularity of his restaurant. The restaurant has a 4.3 rating on Facebook, and a 4.5 rating on TripAdvisor. Despite the yummy dishes, the owner is recognized by Taiwanese for another heart-warming reason.
Mr. Chuang is well known for his kindness. For over two decades, he has made large amounts of charitable contributions to support kids and low-income families both in Taiwan and overseas. Having a tough childhood, Mr. Chuang heartily knows that life can be challenging, so he gives back!
He started his charitable work early. As the restaurant business grew, he increased the amount of donations. “I have made enough to support my family’s basic needs, the rest goes to people in need,” said the casually-dressed owner. Mr. Chuang has since made donations to sponsor children, build schools, and many more. Sometimes, he picks up fresh seafood and brings them to needy households directly.
“Giving makes me happy.”Mr. Chuang, owner of Seashore Seafood
The restaurant is a hidden gem away from the tourist area, so this restaurant is known mainly by the locals in Kaohsiung. It offers a great variety of fresh, seasonal, seafood dishes at reasonable prices. After 30 years in business, Seashore Seafood still a popular place for seafood.
