J-Sho Ya is a branch of the Shoya yakiniku chain that targets younger diners. Like Shoya, it offers exquisitely-made menu selections created from high-quality ingredients and sold for reasonable prices. The set meals (NT$380-680) include beef, pork and boneless chicken legs, and come with drinks, salad and seasonal vegetables. Every set also includes all-you-can-eat rice, lettuce, sliced apples and Movenpick yogurt ice cream (a plus for lactose-intolerant diners). --By Niang Chen, translated by Angel Pu
The two-story J-Sho Ya has a bright and comfy environment.
B. The traditional Japanese garden-style decor blends white stones and wood to create a calm atmosphere.
The thick, rare, a la carte Angus Boneless Beef Spareribs (NT$460) are juicy and tender, and taste even better with some pink salt. Imported from Denmark, the Pork Sirloin (NT$380) is deliciously chewy and juicy.
