Restaurant review: Addiction Aquatic Development (上引水產)

By Ian Bartholomew  /  Staff reporter

An unexpected highlight of the meal was the deep-fried burdock root (炸牛蒡片, NT$60 a portion), an excellent accompaniment to the strongly flavored fish. A wide range of beverages is on offer, but for the hot weather, a 500ml mug of chilled Asahi beer for just NT$100 seemed wonderfully inviting.

As with the sushi bar at Addiction Aquatic Development, the grill restaurant is a mix of many outstanding qualities with a few significant flaws that could fatally undermine the dining experience. The grill chefs certainly know their business and the food is brought to the table promptly, but the service style and the display of the produce is all just a little too haphazard, and the echoes of an NT$299 all-you-can-eat establishment do not sit well with the high prices and aspirations to modern urban chic.
