Got a couple of out-of-towners staying with me for a few days, and they're all focused on eating their way through Taipei. A list was drawn up last week and they're checking them off one by one. I decided to join them for lunch at Sasa Sushi (笹鮨), a place I'd read about but had never tried.
The L-shaped Japanese cypress (檜) counter looked immaculate, and seats less than 15. I knew we were in for some very personal service. Not wanting to do omakase (御任せ) for lunch today, we opted for the priciest of the 3 business lunch sets at half the price.
