Open for 19 years, Hatsuho is the founder of Osaka-style grilled foods in Taiwan. Recently they relocated but continue to serve a great selection of authentic Japanese set meals, appetizers and grilled foods. Now there are two floors--with half the space on the second floor traditional Japanese-style decor--but no matter where they move you feel their natural, homey ambiance. Menu items are not upscale, but more than half of the patrons are Japanese, and a Japanese man sitting at the table right next to mine explained he comes because "it's friendly and homey, just like in Japan." --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee

A. For first time visitors, try the unique Osaka Grilled Pancakes (NT$260), stuffed with cabbage, pork, scallops, konjac and corn. Or, try their Fragrant Pork with Purple Perilla (NT$190). These dishes demonstrate how particular the chefs are about utilizing the ingredients. Also available is Orion beer from Okinawa (NT$90/small, NT$140/big).

B. Garlic Skipjack Tuna, or Katsuo-bushi (NT$260) is first grilled then slapped with ice cubes to make the meat tender and fresh.
