Legend said Emperor Qianlong once cruised at Hexia with the minister Ji Xiaolan, they came into the restaurant and the local girls gave a first couplet to them: “A young sister goes to Hexia and eats food by facing the south”. Ji Xiaolan was proud of his profound learning but failed to answer the second couplet finally. Since then Wenlou got great reputation, attracting more and more scholars to come, while the first couplet given by Hexia girls has not been answered yet for some hundred years, leaving a far-spread story.
