Addiction Aquatic Development: La Mer (上引水產之煮海)

Seeing that AAD (上引水產) is one of my most popular posts ever, I am going to do a follow up on their restaurant next door: La Mer (煮海).  The two places is located right next to each other but as you are probably aware, at AAD, you stand while you eat... at La Mer, you finally get to sit down and enjoy a proper meal.

La Mer's Sashimi Platter for Two (NT$1,280)

As usual, to avoid ridiculous queues, I went there with my co-worker on a weekday around 6pm.  We were asked if we had reservations (we don't) but didn't have trouble getting a table.

The staff wears a salor uniform here! So cute!

We were given the outdoor seats (because we didn't have reservations?)
It was February so it was cold!  but there are heat lamps above us so it was not too bad

The drinks menu was loooooong...

Then, we went back to the fish tanks to pick what we want to eat for dinner.  Definitely one of those places that is the more the merrier...

Now that we picked what we wanted, we went back to our table and patiently wait for our food to appear~

The restaurant installed windows at their kitchen so you can see what else the chefs are preparing, just in case you saw something you wanted but didn't remember to order... (smart marketing!)

The must-try (if you eat sashimi) is their sashimi platter.  For only NT$1,280, you set a huge platter of sashimi that's fresh and delicious!  Great variety and great value!!!  I also like their hand rolls since it's made to order (right in front of you no less) by the chef (he is a cutie too!)

I personally perfer La Mer over the standing sushi area at ADD.  The price is comparable and you get to enjoy your food at a much better environment.
