At Sen Japanese Cuisine, diners can observe the art of Japanese cooking at its best. Working behind the bar, Chef Mori creates artistic dish after dish with his delicate movements and clean knife work; whether it's sashimi, nigirizushi (hand-molded sushi) or temakizushi (hand-rolled sushi), each item overflows with an exquisite aesthetic created through the colors of the ingredients, presentation on the dish and fusion of flavors. It's hard to resist ordering seconds and thirds after you have tasted these items. Eel Rice Meal Set starts from NT$580 and you can also reserve off-menu dishes for NT$1,500 per person, with limited availability. --By NaingChen, translated by Naomi Lai
A. An elaborate display of food preparation takes place daily at this small, simple restaurant.
B. The Eel and Salmon Egg Temakizushi (hand-rolled sushi) is made with soft eel pieces and savory salmon eggs plus some bean sprouts, cabbage slices, seasoning, mayonnaise and fried egg. The ingredients may vary depending on what's in season.
C. The Mackerel Sashimi uses seasonal deep-sea mackerel, elegantly sliced by the chef to give diners the chance to taste the original freshness of the fish and the sweetness of the fat melting in their mouths. With this course, you have the chance to experience sashimi at its best.
