[Shanghai 上海] Weiliu 味留

without comments

Weiliu 味留

Add: B1/F,158 Julu Lu, near Ruijin Yi Lu
Tel: 6333 5117
Hours: 5~11pm (closed on Sun)
Price: from 1280 RMB
Visited: Apr 2017

Found 158 might be widely known as the “new Yongkang Lu” with its collection of expat-centric bars and restaurants, but the subterranean hub also houses an upscale Japanese restaurant called Weiliu. Tucked away in a quiet corner, Weiliu – opened just a few weeks before my visit – is composed of a very zen pebble garden, one main sushi bar, and a couple of spacious private rooms, all donned with silent sliding doors and minimalist decors.

永康路被整頓後,全上海的外國人似乎都跑到大同坊來了,每逢週末都擠得水洩不通。不過你知道,這裡除了有去不完的酒吧之外,其實還隱藏了一家相當高級日本料理店嗎? 我到訪時才開幕幾週的味留座落在大同坊一個安靜的角落,有個很禪的庭院,一個開放式吧台,還有幾個寬敞的包房。風格簡約,低調的外表讓人很想進去一探究進…

The restaurant group, with three locations in Taipei already, also imported their chefs from Taiwan.  Omakase sets are priced at 1,280, 1,680, and 1,980 RMB – steep, but not uncommon among the high-end Japanese restaurant scene in Shanghai.

味留來自台灣,在台北已有三家店(咦,可是之前從來沒聽過),上海新店大部分的師父似乎也都是台灣人。Omakase 的價位是 1,280, 1,680, 和 1,980 人民幣 - 貴,但這就是上海高級日本料理的行情。

[Taipei 台北] Shoun Ryugin 祥雲龍吟

without comments

Shoun Ryugin 祥雲龍吟

Add: 5F, No.301, Le Qun 3rd Road, Taipei
Tel: (02) 8501 5808
Hours: [Tue-Sun] 6-9:30pm (last order), closed on Mon
Website: www.nihonryori-ryugin.com.tw
Price: 6500 TWD + 10%
Visited on: Jun 2016

Please note that this was an invited tasting.

One of the meals I most looked forward to on this trip to Taipei was dinner at Shoun Ryugin, the sister restaurant of three Michelin star Ryugin in Tokyo. I visited Ryugin five years ago and was quite blown away by Chef Seiji Yamamoto’s impeccable cuisine, so naturally I was excited to try his Taipei establishment, which features the richness of Taiwan’s local ingredients while striving for the same memorable dining experience.

請注意這是餐廳安排試吃。

五年前慕名去了東京米其林三星的龍吟,當時就對山本征治主廚的極致料理相當佩服。後來聽說他在台北開了家姐妹店,而最近才知道這家分店和RAW(以及很多台北其他的餐廳)都是HASMORE赫士盟餐飲集團經營的。這次多虧了他們的邀請,讓我嚐到了這兩家餐廳。

Upon entering, I was first served a cup of cold brew tea at the reception area (godsend on this hot hot summer day in Taipei), and once our entire dinner party has arrived, we were led into the elegant dining room via a stone path.

抵達後,服務人員讓我在休息區稍坐,幷送上一杯冰涼的冷泡茶(台北夏天,太需要了)。店內沈穩優雅的風格,和東京本店有些相似。

[Shanghai 上海] Maison Asano 淺野府 (2)

without comments

Maison Asano 淺野府

Add: 318-2 Julu Lu, near Maoming Nan Lu / 巨鹿路318-2, 近茂名南路
Tel: 6216 2019 / 18019363910
Hours: [Tue-Sun] 5:30-10:30pm (closed on Mon)
Price: 888~1980 RMB/set
Visited: Mar 2016

Please note that this was an invited tasting.

It’s been over a year since I last visited to Maison Asano, and during the past few months, this high-end Japanese restaurant has gone through some significant changes. The original open space has been sectioned off into various private rooms, and even the bar feels more intimate now. The chef in charge has also changed from Liam to Simon, a young Taiwanese chef in his early thirties, but we will talk about him a bit later.

請注意本次為餐廳邀請試吃。

記得 2010 年 Sushi Oyama 開幕時,曾是上海唯一一家高級壽司店,讓我非常著迷。在離開上海的幾年,陸續聽說多了不少類似級別的壽司店,而其中一家開幕時備受矚目的是巨鹿路上的淺野府。後來通過朋友介紹認識了老板Judy,上周受她邀請去用了晚餐,除了好奇這家餐廳的現況,也想了解下這位臉蛋精致的像洋娃娃的台灣日本混血女孩,怎麽會想要跑來上海開一家日本料理。

What’s left unchanged is the price – Maison Asano still offers set of 888 and 1380 RMB, but they can also go up to 1980RMB for those who really want to splurge – but they do request an one-week advance notice to prepare this special menu. For me, dinner commenced with a bowl of Japanese yellowtail soup – a perfect start for this chilly Spring evening.

淺野府自 2013 年開幕後有了不少變化。本來開放的空間改成了包房的設計,吧台的位子多了不少私密感,料理長也在最近換了人 - 這點,稍後再細說。淺野府有888元和1380元的套餐,也可以根據客人的要求做1680和1980的極致套餐(需一周前預訂)。我當天的晚膳,由一碗熱騰騰的鰤魚蒜味前湯開始。

Appetizers: sesame spinach, red conch, tuna withmountain yam, and tomato poached in red wine.

前菜:胡麻菠菜、紅螺、山藥金槍魚、紅酒番茄。

L1150144

Japanese sea bream with orange vinegar.

鲷魚,佐橙醋。
