Try their lunch ,quite authentic Japanese taste with reasonable price.


famous for its grilled eel,serves Japanese local dishes, very famous among Japanese in Taipei

寿司居酒屋 玄海:台北市南京東路二段97号

Not very authentic Japanese but above average and satisfactory as a Sushi resturant in foreign countries.

Tonight we tried a place called, "Sandwich." We really enjoyed it. They serve tonkatsu set menus ($130-180NT), tonkatsu sandwiches (avg $55NT), individual sized hotpot ($160NT), udon, rice dishes, tea and coffee drinks.

The tonkatsu set comes with a perfectly cooked bowl of rice, misoshiru, freshly shredded cabbage, and the sesame seed mixture you grind with the Japanese mortar and pestle, then add tonkatsu sauce.

Service is quick and courteous. Prices are outstanding for a great meal. You must try it!

Please call to check address:
#2, Alley (I think) 177, Yongji Rd.

Great sushi with big melt-in-your-mouth slabs of fish! No English menu but the waiting staff can help. Lovely atmosphere too. I don't know the name/address. Cross Chongqing S Rd Sec 1, east from ShinKong Mitsukoshi onto KaiFeng St (McD's sits in the corner). Go on for 3 minutes. You can't miss it with the dark wood interior and red lanterns.

My favorite curry shop in Tokyo is CocoIchiban, hands down. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have a branch in Taipei a few doors down from the Brother Hotel (near the intersection of 南京東路 and 復興北路). Perhaps they have multiple locations, but this branch is actually more upscale than its Tokyo counterparts.

if you are serious about authentic edo sushi, please definitely go to "野壽司". price range from 2000 and above, ask for chef Nomura's counter seat.
It's probably the best I had in TW.

A family relative treated my cousin and I to Mitsui (@ 108 Dun Hua South Sec.1) last night. While uni, sashimi (on ice with freshly ground wasabi), abalone salad, and grilled king crab were phenomenal I was not "floored" by the grilled scallop, beef chunks atop some-type-of-leaf-over-coals and the miso hot pot.

While eating the sashimi the thought: "so this is what sashimi is supposed to taste like" repeatedly occured in my mind. Although frozen on ice for shipping, I suspect the additional 12 hrs of flight time from Japan to the US alters fishes' flavor a tad.

They checked my forehead temp. upon entering after recommending a hand sanitizer spritz; it didn't offend/bother me as I can respect their decision to do so but really? I typically stay home when ill and not run rampant through the streets spreading germs.

Great recipes, thanks for sharing these.

The one new thing I encountered when I went to Taipei in 2008 was the Moss Burger. They are so cute and yummy. Got them at 7-11!

This is just a great selection of dishes. There are so many more. Good job.

I love Japanese food. I think the one you named Mos Burger is a famous Korean food called Bulgogi. I am sure of that. Some Japanese restaurants in metropolitan cities of the world may be run by Koreans.
