Fabulous Eel Rice

I've blogged about this restaurant in Taipei before - see this post for more.

I guessed the eel rice here left such an impression for me that I had to go back this trip with The Husband.

With the 2 of us, we were able to try out more stuff than I did the last time. The eel rice is what this shop is famous for. Be sure not to leave without trying this. The sauce is especially good - it is slightly sweet and goes well with the grilled eel and rice.

The yakitori range of grilled meat on sticks are all very good. The restaurant serves a wider range of yakitori during lunch, for some reason. If you are interested in eel kidney - you should visit during lunch. We had the grilled pork and grilled squid and both were very good.

Egg rolls - plain or with grilled eels are very famous in this restaurant as well. These were perfectly cooked so that the egg is still soft and slightly wobbly.

The sashimi is also very very fresh and popular with guests.

The overall quality of the food here is really good and the food is very reasonably priced. No wonder the long queues then. Go just before their opening time to avoid queueing.

Note though that the restaurant can be really packed, so it might not be an ideal place to go for a nice, long meal. This is a place you go for good food and then hurry off so other people can come in for a good meal as well.

See the long queue outside the restaurant? 
Good thing this was the queue as we were leaving the place..
