japanese: i don't recommend KYOMOMOYAMA

Mitsukoshi XinYi, A9, 6th FL
No. 9, Song Shou Road Taipei

It looked promising. The packaging for to-go was pretty. But the taste... bleech.

Who puts ginger inside a tempura shrimp roll (NT$300+)? Who wants to eat unagi don (NT$500+) where the eel's bone are prickly rather than cooked until soft? I certainly don't.

While this Japanese eatery seemed semi-upscale and good for family sit down dinners, next to the popular tonkatsu place Saboten and a Korean bbq restaurant I want to try- our to-go experience left me hungry for something else.

Anything else.

Prickly eel bones mean the eel is undercooked. Raw eel blood is poisonous. Don't eat there anymore.

hey hungry girl, long time no visit. just thought you might like to know that my wife has started up her own food blog about restaurants in the taipei area. the link is, so check it out if you have a chance. she updates frequently, but hasn't really spread the word yet, so you can be one of the very first commenters. =)

by the way, we ate at sumie for our anniversary based on your recommendation. it was fantastic.
