delicious, affordable chirashi in the heart of taipei.
Sushi is plenty in Taipei, but fresh, affordable sushi is harder to come by -- Manzhe Die (store 3) meets both of these.
Located on the street behind Breeze Center just north of Civic Boulevard, Manzhe Die is a small shop that specializes in chirashi. The shop itself is quite cozy and small. Chirashi ranges from NT300 to NT1,000+. All the fish is fresh and the portions are quite generous. My favorite is the special combination seafood chirashi (綜合特選海鮮丼) for NT520 (as of Jan. 2015).
The kitchen is open so you can watch the chefs at work. Service is good. Accepts credit cards.
To get to Manzhe Die take the MRT to Zhongxiao Fuxing and head North on Fuxing S. Rd. Cross Civic Blvd. and make a right on Civic. Walk past Breeze and then make a left when you hit the outdoor parking. Manzhe Die will be right down that alley.
