The seafood here is bought at the market on a daily basis, so you know your sashimi dishes will be fresh and tasty. The executive supervisor/chef, Chong Shiao-feng, has two decades of experience in the catering industry; he supervises what goes on in the kitchen while a group of professional and dedicated chefs meticulously prepare the food. The rice meals start at NT$70, while sushi hand rolls start at NT$30. The assorted sushi dishes start at NT$40. --By Niang Chen, translated by Ann Lee
A. A Song Jing Wu specialty, the Mackerel Pike with Tomato Sauce (NT$90), takes four hours to make; chefs cook the fish until the bones are soft enough to be swallowed. Although the fish has a slightly bitter flavor, it blends well with the tomato sauce and rice.
B. The Fried Tempura Shrimp (NT$120) comes with tempura-style Four Seasons Beans, as well as yam and eggplant. The Assorted Sashimi Combo (NT$150/7 slices) is another great choice.
