steamed fish with daikon and mushrooms

Even though I've been eating my way through Taipei, I still love the business lunch set at Sumie. I can count on the consistently amazing sashimi and lamb chops, and be surprised by the varying artful appetizer courses that change seasonally. Other lunch set choices include eel unagi don, beef sukiyaki, seafood mini hotpot, miso glazed codfish, or a vegetarian set option, and most for under NT$1000 for 8 courses.

It's a splurge for lunch, but trust me, it's worth it especially when I think about a lot of the places I've been eating in the same price range recently for less food or lesser quality and ended the meal a lot less satisfied.

I'm still playing catch up with my backlog of restaurant reviews and photos to photoshop, addresses to translate, and dealing with unstable internet connection (boo!), so follow me on Facebook or Twitter for the most up to date eats and random thoughts of mine. And don't just stalk! Say hi, leave comments!

I'll let the pictures do the talking in this one, or read my previous reviews about Sumie so I don't procrastinate this post too.

Everything was delicious. The end. (Can I write all my posts this way? Haha!)
