There are two kinds of restaurants that serve
sushi--conventional Japanese establishments, and sushi-only
specialists. Mu Fu falls into the latter category, setting
it apart from the majority of Japanese eateries.
Mu Fu doesn't have to add hot pot or soba noodles to its menu
to lure customers; it relies simply on 17 different kinds
of sushi, prepared in creative and fresh ways by sushi chefs
trained by Mu Fu's owner, Mr. Xue. Amazingly, it is claimed
that he is the only person alive possessing special techniques
passed down from a famous Japanese sushi chef who lived 70
The first Mu Fu restaurant was opened ten years ago at 30,
WuFu 2nd Road (tel:(07) 227-4958). Responding to demand, Mr.
Xue opened a second, larger restaurant on the corner of JhongHua
and JhongJheng roads in January this year.
Now the important part: the food! Choose from
a large number of variety platters; eight pieces of sushi
will cost you between NT$60 and NT$120. A large platter containing
11 pieces of sushi will only lighten your wallet by NT$160.
The only hot dish on the menu is traditional miso soup (NT$20),
the perfect complement to a colorful plate of sushi. The sushi
is as fresh as can be: no fish is kept for more than 24 hours;
rest assured that your meal is straight out of the ocean.
With two floors and seating for 135 people, Mu Fu has plenty
of room for a hungry lunch crowd. Much of the business is
take-out--but I would encourage you to dine in here, as this
restaurant boasts a clean, modern and well-lit decor. And
if you get the chance, say hello to Mr. Xue, one of the most
pleasant, courteous, and knowledgeable sushi chefs in the
city. Ask him how he chose the name for his restaurant and
he'll probably take the time to tell you an interesting story.
