Information: As Taiwan was once under Japanese rule, you will find that Taiwan still has a lot of Japanese stores and restaurants. You won’t be able to miss this relatively new Japanese seafood chain. The place is usually packed with people and you’ll even find them waiting in line to get a taste of one of this restaurant’s many seafood dishes (which is pretty common among popular restaurants in Taiwan). The restaurant specializes in raw seafood, which is why the large bowl of mixed seafood on rice  is probably the most ordered dish. Other options are fried fish, sushi and a small selection of other meats (beef and pork). The seafood is fresh and you really get a large amount of what you order.  If you’re in a hurry, you can also order a take-out lunch or dinner box. An unlimited amount of cold snacks and miso soup goes with your main dish. You can olso order an extra salad (also often containing seafood). Prices per dish vary from 100 NTD to 250 NTD (which is roughly about 2.5 euros/ 3 dollars). Dishes are usually served within 10 minutes after placing your order. One of the downsides for travelers is the lack of an English menu, so bringing a Chinese-speaking friend is probably best, or you’ll end up just pointing at pictures and hoping you ordered the right thing.

Rating:  This restaurant is great for lunch or dinner on a hot day in Taiwan. You get thick slices of fish and other seafood and the overall quality is good and most of all: fresh. If you’re not a big fan of seafood however, I’d recommend going someplace else as there are few other options. The fact that there isn’t an English menu is really a downside for non-Chinese speaking people, but unfortunately, this quite often goes for non-tourist oriented restaurants. People are really friendly and willing to help though, so you should absolutely try going here.
