After you are done contemplating what to eat or bring home, you are led through the pathways into Addiction Aquatic Development Taiwan supermarket. Beautiful fruits of the freshest quality; cooked food for the hurried business-person, premium cuts of beef, poultry, etc; even a selection of fine home products are available .
How could we not try the stand up sushi bar. Chose from a selection of combination meals and individual selections, there is something for everyone. We recommend starting with the set meal for about 2000 NTD ($66CAD) – a price impossible in Vancouver. Add individual nigiri or grilled seafood if you are still hungry.
Our set menu came with BBQ grilled king crab legs (highly recommend and crowd favorite). The the salt water and sweetness of crab meat radiate.
Grilled mackerel is tender and juicy.
Some kind of light seasoned and seared fish. SO fresh!
Sea Urchin (uni) is a must! One of the freshest uni I’ve had since Japan. The golden cushions is sweet, briny salty, and immensely palatable. Be warned their uni supply often runs out early.
Then arrives the nigiri platter.
Cooked Shrimp: A springy texture over a refreshing sweetness. A rare occurrence.
Farm Salmon: fresh but not special.
Tuna: Melting but slightly chewy at parts. Believe we got a bad cut.
Engawa: a fatty fish slightly torched and sprinkled with a light citrus soy sauce.
Ikura: Individual popping juicy roe. Translucent. Delicious.
Next on the menu was a seafood salad with ponzu soy sauce and sprint greens
Underneath the roe was a calm and fish paste layer.
Miso Soup: filled with shrimp and fish. A giant pot of broth is made in front of you where buckets of shrimp heads are added constantly. The soup is never diluted and literally we can say it is a Fresh bowl of soup.
