To reward my travel buddy (YY) for a long late night to fly over, plus myself finishing up an early meeting after staying up til super late, we went for a place that do pretty neat chirashi doburi, I was kidding, I booked this place before we come over, just because both of us are huge fans of japanese cuisine.
They do omakase at night and set menu for lunch, some of them are with sashimi, and some are cooked version donburi, we picked our own meal at the counter, and the lady start serving us appetizer.
A homemade potato salad with lots of mayo! I make my own potato and egg salad sometimes and every family have their own recipe with almost same ingredients! This one was pretty mild, didn’t add any onion but still taste good, love the potato texture, as I hate mushy potatos unless I am eating mesh.
Pickles were homemade! Very crunchy!!!! The cucumber is relatively too soft for me, after eating all those pickles I was soooo ready for my donburi.
YY’s meal comes first, chef made it on the spot for us (6 bar counter seats only)! She ordered an uni based chirashi don, 3 kinds of raw fish plus a hand full of uni (sea urchin). She doesn’t eat any cooked fish and one kind of fish have been cooked sightly by a gas torch, still she ate it all so I guess she likes it!
Mine was a deluxe sashimi donburi, some highlights for the stuff on my rice was, anago, uni, ikura, kaki, bonito, and other fish too, it has a 10+ type of toppings, and the size was huge for a chirashi don, I had to eat a few bites, ate a few slices of picked ginger and carry on, still took me a good 30 minutes to finish this bowl of rice. The chirashi donburi cant go wrong if the sashimi is fresh.
Soup with fish was served, you will find a lot of fish chunks which I couldn’t finish them all because I was just too full.
Water melon was our sweet treat to end this meal, very sweet and definitely in good quality.
Consider a sashimi donburi only cost us less than $200 HKD each, it was really good value meal, their dinner omakase cost only 2000-3000 TWD which is sightly less than $100 USD, it may be worth while for us to come over again sometime.

香港人愛吃日本菜的程度真的不容低估的!除了飛日本外臺灣也是個吃日本菜的熱店，在上引水產、瞞著爹常常都會見到很多香港人，就是吃大腕燒肉、天天富羅、三井日式料理也常會碰到香港來的旅客，要知道飛一回臺北比坐火車番廣州相差其實不大。香港人愛旅行，也間接令這些熱店也經常人山人海! 如果只來個三日兩夜快閃的話，當然想好好利用時間，所以我也喜歡發掘小店，做做白老鼠，這回剛好出差就竟然讓我找到這家性價比超高的料理店! 位置就在國父紀念館站徒步幾分鐘，人流不多，地下一層也只有6個bar counter位置!
