A Night in Taiwan – Enjoying Sushi and Wine
I love am foodie (well a self described foodie), according to Wikipedia my
interests and activities include the food industry, wineries and wine tasting, breweries and beer sampling, food science, following restaurant openings and closings, food distribution, food fads, health and nutrition, cooking classes, culinary tourism, and restaurant management.
On the area of culinary tourism, I travel to Asia semi frequently, I always look forward to my trips to Japan, I love Tokyo, I love the Japanese culture and traditions, I love that toilets pamper you and in general Japanese are as curious about you as you are of them. But most of all I love Sushi, I love the color, the taste, the art-form, however, I am not a Sushi snob, the other day I was enjoying some wonderful Sushi at the Frey Meyer on Overland, Rd. That being said I do realize that in Japan Sushi is not just food, its an art form that is taken seriously and dating back to the 15th century.
Today I am traveling in Taiwan and the people I am with wanted to try a new Japanese restaurant in the downtown area of Tainan, I was game of course. I sat and engaged in conversation but waiting in anticipation for our food to arrive, after all we ordered among other things, Sushi. As our food started to arrive I knew it would be good, for starters the selection was varied and eclectic, presentation was second to none, and service was fantastic, (we had our very own waitress).
I can go on and on but a picture in this case would actually save me from typing a 1000 words…
In Taiwan Sushi is typically consumed with wine and lots of it, so much so that they have room just for …. well look at the last picture in the list above.
