*Dinner* Addiction Aquatic Development (上引水产) – Taipei Largest Fish Market
Well known as the “Taipei’s Tsukiji Fishmarket”, Addiction Aquatic Development (上引水产) has crowned as the must-visit places in Taipei especially if you are into the fresh Japanese sushi or other Japanese cuisines.
Do remember circle around the market before deciding what you would like to have since each section (10 in total) provides the different theme of Japanese cooking; Hot Pot (Nabe), Charcoal Grill, Seafood Snacks, Fruits and much more!
We arrived there during the peak hour with a very hungry tummy so we decided to only get food from “Prepared Section” only for this round.
* Addiction Aquatic Development tends to sell their seafood at slightly over average prices, so do prepare some extra cash (they only accept cash paying method) if you are planning to have a feast!
Sweet Salty Live Spain Oyster
We started off our meal with some Live Spain Oyster NT$185 for each which overall tastes a little bit salty compared to the French Oyster (much sweeter).
The Oysters are very fresh (only prepare prior order) and have a very rich and creamy consistency for the meat part, can even swallow as a whole without any dippings! 😉
Fresh Assorted Fish Sashimi
We took two sets of assorted sashimi NT$390 for each which consist of Yellowtail, Salmon and Salmon Belly.
The sashimi slices are fresh as expected while the portion was rather big for just two person which leads to having difficulties in finishing up everything (ended with half dozen of salmon belly leftover). ;(
Friendly Reminder: Do plan properly beforehand and avoid getting same kinds of fish sashimi (especially salmons) otherwise you will be ended up feeling “Nausea” like what we did.
Yummy Mixed Sashimi Don
The Chirashi Don NT$360 is definitely a hot selling item from the “Seafood Snacks Section”, assorted cube sized premium grade sashimi such as; salmon, tuna belly, salmon roe, tuna, salmon belly and shrimps are scattered properly on top of the sushi rice.
Wait until you feed loads of it into your mouth, you are surely wanted to spill out the word “Umai” (delicious) from the bottom of your heart! 😉
Remember to chew a few slices of pickled ginger (already provided) in between the spoons of sashimi rice for more in-depth refreshing deliciousness.
