If you like rice and sashimi then this place is definitely worth a try! What more do you need if you get the perfect mix of fresh seafood and sweet sushi rice?
Cafe de Riz (Map, Facebook) is beautiful and sparkling clean. To me, the decor is simple and modern and since they serve Japanese donburis (rice bowls), the decoration shows off different types of rice in flasks and bowls. The prices are on the more expensive side for food in Asia, but I think it is worth it. You get large pieces of high quality fish and I know you’ll leave very satisfied.
I ordered the Marinated Tuna Don (~$26 USD) and Daniel got the Fabulous Seafood Don (~$40 USD) — because he is that fabulous. Our set meals come with a dragon fruit salad with a mango puree dressing to start and Genmatcha tea to end the meal. (You can order a different drink and pay the difference)
For my Marinated Tuna Don, it comes with shredded Tamago (egg), six huge pieces of soy marinated tuna and a big scoop of chopped tuna. All top off with shredded seaweeds and green onions. The rice is perfectly cooked and seasoned, sweet and vinegary, and personally, I don’t really care for white rice but, here tonight, I devoured this bowl down to the very last grain — It’s that good. Also, each meal comes with a miso soup and it’s light with fresh seaweeds and soft tofu — I am usually picky with miso soup, especially back in the States, because they make me so thirsty afterward, but so far in Taiwan, the miso is actually very tasteful.
Daniel’s Fabulous Seafood Don comes with a variety of fish and salmon roe. I think there are at least seven different types of fish — with 2-3 pieces per type, including the uni. If you can’t be full off of this, then I don’t know what will ever fill you up.
A warm cup of tea to wash down our glutenous seafood meal.
