8 pieces for lunch

Pin It

The Specialist is town again and wanted some more Japanese, so I looked around for a new place to try.  I had long heard someone rave about Honda (本多日本料理), so I thought I'd give it a shot.  It also helps that the place is within walking distance from my office...

I decided to try out some sushi on the first visit, so I took the Take Sushi Set Lunch (握壽司午餐“竹”).

Steamed egg (茶碗蒸し) - not bad.


Olive flounder (平目) - nice and a little crunchy.

Striped jack (縞鰺) - yummy.

Yellowtail (鰤) - from the belly, with a nice sprinkle of white sesame.

Salmon roe (イクラ)

Sea urchin (雲丹) - pretty fresh.

Alfonsino (金目鯛) - with perilla leaf (紫蘇).

3-in-1 - this isn't the first Japanese joint in Taipei where I've seen chefs put together these sushi with 3 ingredients.  Today it was fatty tuna with scallions (ネギトロ), salmon roe (イクラ) and squid (イカ).  Interesting combo, and pretty detailing on the squid.

Handroll (手巻き) - with crab meat (かに), egg (卵), cabbage and mayo.

Miso soup - with small clams, ho hum.

Red bean soup - very Taiwanese… would be more Japanese if they added a few glutinous rice balls.

This was not bad… I should probably try them out for dinner one of these days.
