Lao Ba Feng Izakaya in Taipei, Taiwan

Beef and Foie Gras Kushiyaki

Our local team took us to this izakaya in Taipei tonight (4, Lane 160, Section 1, Dunhua South Road, 02-2731-9558), but I didn't like their interpretations of the dishes. This was epitomized in some kind of potato mentaiko thing that they put sliced bananas (!!) into, among other things. Having said that, there was one thing that was mindblowingly good: a local butterfish that I believe was called ibodai, whose flesh was almost cod-like in taste. In that sense, there was no problem with the quality of the ingredients here, but I just didn't like the cooking style. That ibodai was fortunately just grilled simply without any weird fruit getting in the way.
