There is excellent sushi in Taipei, if you know where to go. The sushi here made made me shed a tear (or two!) of happiness, you know, when you are masticating that piece of soft, melting, flesh and your eyes roll back in delight and you think to yourself - "wow, I am so lucky I am here - and experiencing this ridiculous food and wine that which most people could never even fathom." My good friend Henry of Henry's Gourmet Guide (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Henrys-Gourmet-Guide/176072308343) arranged three of four nights of thoroughly planned wine paired dinners for my Taipei visit. I could not have asked for a better friend and host to be my guide and food and wine eating buddy.
Very hard to get a reservation here - every night is a full house. The Chef hails from Japan of course, and it certainly helped that Henry speaks fluent Japanese (even though he is Taiwanese) and is also friends with the Chef.
Henry also brought some very special champagne to celebrate and enjoy with our dishes. To start, a Delamotte blanc de blanc of dry, acidic, aromatic, bubbly, perfectly slightly steely effervescent bubbles popping in my mouth. Wonderful!!
