      Sanjusangendo Restaurant, located near Ximending, offers mid-price Japanese cuisine. One special characteristic, the owner explains, is that some of the "beauty and charm" of the owner has rubbed off on the dishes. And, in watching the boss instruct the staff on how to prepare and serve the food and seeing how the customers talk about the atmosphere, you can see that the owner has her own definition of the words "beauty and charm."

    It is easy to see why people say that Sanjusangendo has provided almost 20 years of unforgettable food and service. Everyone in the restaurant calls the owner "Lao Da," or "boss," because everything, from food preparation to carrying the food to customers' tables, must meet her approval.

    The owner has also decided that there is to be no printed menu; the dishes offered at this establishment are those she has arranged for the day. However, there are choices. Before ordering, the staff will inform you what is available, and you can eat as much as you can pay for. Customers usually spend around NT$1,000 per person.

    The absence of a printed menu simplifies the ordering procedure, regulars say. First-timers are advised to try the sashimi plate, which includes different types of seafood, such as shrimp and scallops. These are meticulously arranged by the chef to provide not only a rich eating experience, but also a visual feast. Other dishes popular with frequent customers include King Crab Hotpot and Crab Legs.

     This is indeed a festive and interesting restaurant--some colorful and bold statements come out of the owner's mouth! You cannot but admire her attention to detail; the whole experience is unforgettable. If you are curious about Sanjusangendo, take a look at: http://your33.myweb.hinet.net
