I think I found my new favorite donburi restaurant! During our last trip to Taipei, my friends introduced me to a restaurant called 瞞著爹三店 (unfortunately, I don’t think this restaurant has an English name), a little Japanese gem that specializes in donburi! Donburi is essentially the Japanese name for rice bowls and can come with all different sorts of toppings including raw or cooked fish, meat, vegetables, eggs and more.
瞞著爹三店 is located in the Songshan District occupying a small two-story home-turned-restaurant. The menu consists of all donburi everything along with Chawanmushi (steamed egg custard), hand rolls and a selection of Japanese sake. The donburi options including toppings such as bluefin tuna, salmon, hokkaido scallops, squid, conger eel, shrimp, flatfish, salmon roe, caviar, and snow crab. I couldn’t choose just one, so I ordered one with little bit of everything.
Donburi with scallops, squid, conger eel, flatfish, sea urchin, shrimp, squid and tamago or Japanese omelet (NT$520 or $17 USD). Loved this! The seafood was fresh and the rice was flavored with the perfect amount of soy and mirin.
