Luke’s Birthday part 2

I asked my friend for a recommendation on where to take Luke for his Birthday dinner. I told her I wanted a really good Japanese Restaurant. Almost with out hesitation she told me she knew exactly the place. The restaurant is called: 魚道生日式料理 (not sure of the translation). Since it wasn’t really English-friendly, my friend had to book for us.

We arrived and took a seat at the sushi bar. There were no menus – all we had to do was to pick the set-menu we wanted (just the price as the food was all a surprise). After we ordered drinks and picked out menus the food started coming out. It was amazing. There were about 10 dishes each  all up in our set. Each one had a different kind of fish and flavor. Everything was beautifully presented and so delicious.

Here are a few snaps from our dinner:

After dinner we headed to a cocktail bar close by called, Fourplay. It was a great contrast to our serene dinner – it was boisterous and filled with a great weekend party atmosphere.

The cool thing about Fourplay is it also has no menu. You tell a waiter what kind of drink you feel like (what spirit, whether you like fruity, sour, sweet, etc and how strong you like your drink) and out comes a cocktail suited to your tastes. It was excellent. Luke went for a whiskey based, not sweet, and I went for a vodka based, sour drink. Both were very good and well priced too at around $9NZD. We’ll be back to both these places for sure.

We packed a lot into our Saturday celebrating Luke’s 28th Birthday, his first birthday in Taipei. It was a lot of fun and showed us new and interesting parts of Taipei. We came home after the cocktail bar totally exhausted but both agreed it was an awesome day.

  1. The sushi looks amazing and that sounds like such a wonderful way to celebrate Luke’s birthday! I am so jealous of your totally international jetsetting life! Tres cool.
