Tsai made the remarks at a DPP Central Standing Committee meeting in Taipei, where they had baozi (包子, bun) from a store in Changhua County’s Lugang Township (鹿港).

Praising the restaurant, A-Zen Bakery (阿振肉包), Tsai said that the proprietor, Cheng Yung-feng (鄭永豐), should be recognized for serving good food and for raising his employees’ wages by 20 percent consecutively for the past two years.
