Kamakura, a sushi and sashimi restaurant, imports seafood from local harbors daily. The 30-plus menu items here are prepared meticulously under the eye of Master Sushi Chef Tanimoto, who has been in the business for 30 years. Their reasonably priced dishes are also aesthetically appealing. --By Queena Hung, translated by Ann Lee, photos by Andy Lin
A.The High-Quality Sushi Platter (NT$800) includes a variety of fish. Thinly-sliced poor man's puffer fish is coated with chives and mashed radish and served with vinaigrette sauce. When sea egg urchin is in season, it's fantastic without any sauce. The hot pot for four (NT$1,500) is prepared with dried minnows and kelp, and then served with Matsuzaka Pork. Other tasty dishes are the Prince Potatoes (NT$250) and the Australian Beef Slices, which go well with wasabi.
B. The Sushi Variety platter (NT$1,200) includes marinated mackerel on a bed of kelp for improved presentation. The blue fish has been cleared of tendons and should be enjoyed with chives and ginger, and without wasabi.
