Taipei - Our Best Japanese Fine Dining Experience Seafood wise
Well the Makankings wanted to try the real deal so we went to San Jing Taipei.
It's a really nice restaurant always fully booked so it would be wise to make reservations before going.
The restaurant do not recommend people to order ala carte as they have extremely LIMITED dishes.
So most people go there to have set meals. Price range from 2880 to 6000 new taiwan dollars per person. But the quality of their seafood and the designs of their food is worth every penny.
This is mini lobster with not cheese, but egg and spinach feeling. The prawn itself is so fresh and all of us were reluctant to swallow it.
Here we have fried fresh scallop. Just look at the size, need we say more?
My personal favourite.
This is the Paper-Base steamboat that we had ingredients are fish, crabs, musells, clams, hairy crab all from hokaido - according to the waitress that served us.
The soup base is a bit bitter, I think it's a mixture of herbal soup and a wee bit of milk
This is a very adorable appetizer. It's garlic wrapped with different types of vege
This is the vege tempuras, cherry tomatoes, flower mushrooms and potatoes which is not pictured because 'someone' ate it before we took the pic.
This is the miso, ginger and fish based. Very refreshing and the fish taste good too.
This is a lamb cutlet. I'm not even sure it's lamb because it doesn't smell the way a normal lamb would, i'm not sure if it's the leaf that they used to cover the smell. Lamb is tender and juicy and sweet at the same time.
This is my favourite dish. Hairy Crab, which the legs are the only edible part of the crab. The taste? Fabulous.
This is baked to perfection on top of a bed of salt and the smell is so good, the crab meat, i would say tasted better than lobsters.
This is frilled fish, what type fish it is, i'm not really sure but it tasted really really good, although i'm not a fish fan.
This is the prawn tempura. The prawn itself is soooo big, and the taste is very fresh. Unlike those they sell in normal japanese restaurants. The seafood here is freshness guaranteed.
This is "someone" favourite, as she ate my portion as well. It's the prawn cocktail salad, which was so good "someone" have the need to steal my food.
This is 'hoi tam' fish's pankreas or liver or whatever they call it i am not sure, one thing for sure that one it's pricy and two, nobody dare to even try it.
We ordered extra rolls while waiting for the food. the taste is normal, nothing special
This is the sahimi set. The best sashimi set i've ever tasted. I can't remember the exact name for the pinkish fish is called but it definately tasted better than the regular sake.
