Taipei 101

I’m going to keep this simple. There’s a place on Greensprings called Taipei 101. The exterior of the building prompted Mr Foodie to exclaim “let’s not get the sushi until we see the inside.” Once on the inside, we met a die hard Taipei 101 fan who told us (as did the waitress) that the sushi is where it’s at. And at $7 for two regular rolls and $13 for 2 special rolls, the prices are (maybe frighteningly?) cheap.

But fear not. The sushi is incredible. On our first trip, we had two special rolls: the mango paradise roll (top-fresh mango and shrimp tempura) and the volcano roll (bottom-California roll with baked seafood on top). Great flavors, not too much rice filler – basically a fantastic experience:

We were intrigued and had to return to double check our first impressions before blogging. This time, tiger roll on top (tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and whitefish with fried “dynamite” inside), and a rainbow spider roll on the bottom (fried soft shell crab with crab salad). Just as good:

As we continue to try more rolls, we will report back. But so far, so good.

  1. I live near there and it seems like there are never any cars there. I have wondered how it stayed open so long. Were there many other diners in there? Thanks. I always enjoy your blog.
