Youthful chef A-Min has a passion for Japanese cuisine and, after working in Taipei and Taichung for a few years, decided to open this tidy, bright restaurant with his wife. Seating for about 20 (reservations recommended)–dining bar-style and in a private room–is surrounded by refined decor. Two non-menu set meals (NT$1,100 and NT$1,800) include 10-plus courses such as sushi, cooked dishes and side dishes made with seasonal and imported ingredients. For weekday lunches, the chef uses select, succulent Yunlin County eels to prepare Marinated Eel over Rice (NT$350), served with side dishes and soup. High-end customized set meals can be reserved after telling A-min your budget. Drinks options are limited so customers are welcomed to bring their own (no corkage fee necessary).
