Sanchon is owned by an ex-buddhist monk and specializes in vegeterian food. Every evening a live performance is given after the meal. The drums are beaten, the harp is played, the patrons are invited to join the dancers, and (occasionally) the lead performer performs a ghost-calling act. (104.87 KB) Photo viewed 636 times
