Japanese chef (mostly only speaks Japanese but staff speaks Chinese/Taiwanese to translate). Great food, service is Japanese way may not be say easy going unless you speak Japanese.
Chef is a little bit like Japanese version of the soup guy, but maybe also language/cultural reasons. (I also remember the last show when the “soup guy” returns)
Sad and Happy news. Chef retired so place closed, sad, but he retired and went back home which is happy,
It’s too bad that this place is now closed. Do you have any other recommendation(s) for Japanese-operated sushi shops in Kaohsiung?
I’ve always found the seafood there to be superior (for the same price) compared to what’s available in Taipei.
This one I like, but its more like high end Japanese market, which sells nice prepared Japanese food, more like Deli style, though not cheap but also not like the other new famous Japanese ones
So, what good seafood places did you find?
I only visit Kaohsiung once in a while, so I am far from being an expert on the food scene in the city, never mind the seafood scene.
But when I am in Kaohsiung, I really enjoy the Fujianese style seafood balls, Taiwanese style “tempura” (not the Japanese version), and also sashimi at this place:
A small branch is conveniently located at Pier 2, but I prefer the wider menu at the larger location: 243 Linsen 1st Road, Kaohsiung City. The 龍鳳丸 (mixed seafood balls) at this shop are brilliant!
Shops in Taipei City cannot do anything like this. It’s amazing how deep the north-south split is for Taiwanese seafood.
Postscript: I also really like a Japanese operated pasta place in Kaohsiung called Kyomo Pasta address 93 Dayi Street, Kaohsiung City. What a nice meal!
I looked at some of the images posted on this shop’s google map site.
Maybe the food is good, but the use of vegetables in the boxed meals looks like it was designed and assembled by Taiwanese. I don’t know any Japanese who would combine those veggies like that.
The fish ball soup, good ! haha the other Japanese-Taiwanese dishes are also good, better than the Franco-Japanese one for me (On the other topic on big awards)
The Pasta place looks interesting, walked past it as sometimes I go to the Malaysian like cafe near it . I guess Taipei has better Pasta?? (any links other topics in Taipei?)
Good for meats/Seafood and sweets if you like that. Vegi’s is like you say somewhat.
I like the duck pasta at SOLO PASTA in Taipei City.
We now have more Italians posting on forumosa, and they may have great suggestions for you—better than mine!—if you start a thread on Tapei City’s pasta shops.
Still love Kyomo Pasta though.
OK, I will have to go ! I visit here sometimes which is near, but can try different noodles
