Taipei, Taiwan - 筌壽司 Allsusi

Website: allsusi.com.tw

During my visit in Taiwan, a friend of mine had been kind enough to take me to this sushi joint near Breeze Centre. I was pretty excited considering my friend was a regular at Kenzan when he was living in Melbourne. When I say regular, I mean like... go there every day, know the chefs personally, go sing karaoke with them and gets happy birthday calls even when he's overseas. He had told me that he finally found a few joints around Taipei which made good sushi, so how could I not be eager to try it out?

I'm going to tell you straight out now that I have no idea what fish is what. All I know is they were good. Dam good. Your eyes can do the rest of the work!


In season bamboo shoots, they were so naturally sweet and crunchy
Marinated fish skin appetizer

Sake!






Prawn
Scallop
Squid

I'm not too sure if this is a Japanese thing, but it definitely is a big thing in Taiwan. It's dried Fish Roe with Daikon.

Japanese Sweet Egg (contains fish inside)
Dessert! Passionfruit Jelly I believe it was?

Price: Pretty much tell the chef what you want your meal to cost for the evening and there you have it!

  1. Hi,

    I visited your site and found it very interesting. I appreciate the way you talk about food and do the reviews on restaurants. With this, I'd like to give a $10 discount voucher to your site which your visitors could use in their take-away orders placed on Menulog (from 500+ restaurants Australia-wide). All they have to do is just type the voucher code (which I will provide you upon response to this message) at the check out.

    Thanks,
    Ruby Anne (ruby@menulog.com.au)
