With names like Godzilla, Rocky Mountain and Earthquake, the menu items at New York Sushi make customers wonder exactly what the servers at this place will bring to the table. Donny and Jackson, New York Sushi's owners, were inspired to create the restaurant after working together at an American sushi joint in Maryland. They share the same creativity and passion for cooking, and wanted to bring the popular trend of Californian rolls to Taiwan. All the fish served at New York is delivered daily and the spices and seasonings are imported from the U.S. and Japan. --By Joan Chang, translated by Ann Lee, photos by by Andy Lin

B. The tall Crunchy Fire (NT$140) is wrapped in a large, fried shrimp and stuffed with spicy tuna, tempura and spicy mayonnaise. The slightly sweet Golden Roll (NT$220) is wrapped with golden, crispy shrimp and served with an avocado and eel dipping sauce.
