Located in Zhongshan District, Addiction Aquatic Development 上引水產 has the best sushi and seafood in Taipei. It is composed of different areas such as the fresh seafood market, stand-up bars (sushi bar, seafood bar and wine bar), pre-packaged sushi and buffet-style hot food.
You'll be amazed by all the fresh seafood available right when you enter Addiction Aquatic. It has everything you can think of from clams, fresh catch of the day to lobster and prawns. The options are endless!
TO-GO AREA/HOT FOOD
Due to its popularity, the seafood and sushi bar is usually busy and the wait could be fro 30-45 minutes. If you're not keen to waiting and want something quick, opt for the to-go sushi and hot food. Sashimi, nigiri, uni and different type of sushi rolls are available. They also offer Chinese food in the hot food area. This is also a cheaper option compared to the seafood and sushi bar.
With all the choices at the seafood bar, I opted for the assorted seafood platter. I really liked the crab, abalone, and oysters. It's so fresh that I don't need to pair it with any other sauce. My bill came out to 1,300NT. Pricey for the locals, but I think it was well worth it for the quality. It would've cost more if I had the exact same dish back in California. The wait was about 30 minutes.
This is my favorite part of the place and would highly recommend to try first. The sushi is incredibly delicious! With all the food I ordered, it felt like I sampled everything on the menu. Each piece is carefully curated to ensure the presentation and taste is top notch. The sushi and nigiri sets (200NT - 600NT) are perfect for tasting a little bit of everything. Individual dishes are also available.
