YanJi Street is filled with an assortment of restaurants but turn the corner, go down a lane and you will find a rather peculiar little Japanese restaurant named Dian Quan. Resembling a typical Japanese streetside vendor, it sells a variety of "Oden" and barbeque snacks. A square wooden door separates the indoor and outdoor areas. Pull open the door and you will find tatami seats surrounding the cook's bar area. Customers must step into their seats, just like they do at traditional Japanese steetside vendors. Most Japanese restaurants sell their Oden one by one but, at Dian Quan, they sell them by the plate. A standard plate contains six kinds of Oden (NT$150), a combo dish has nine (NT$220) and a jumbo dish has 12 (NT$280). Customers can pick the size they want, then choose the Oden they like, a great bargain indeed. If that doesn't quite satisfy your needs, there are also barbequed snacks, sumono and sashimi available. Sashimi and certain fresh seafoods are calculated according to seasonal prices. Dian Quan also stocks over a hundred kinds of sake. Warm sake is NT$400 per bottle, small jars range between NT$280 and NT$450, depending on the sake grade.
