Addiction Aquatic Development 上引水產

This is my second visit to Addiction Aquatic Development (AAD) and also one of the highlights in the itineraries for someone who enjoys going to a clean fish market. It's worth a return for I remembered the freshness and value for money Sushi.

Sashimi Preparation
Not to mentioned the freshness of seafood that we are going to feed ourselves with! With "Addiction" as their business name, I won't deny such place is truly an addiction for tourist like us.

Skillfully Sliced
As we were going on the weekends, we tried to be early as this place usually pack with crowd during peak hours like this.

At the Standing Sushi Bar
The entire place is more than a seafood market. You get to see the place is an integration of standing sushi bar counters, restaurants and supermarket. The place is quite chilly and you won't get to smell the stink from the seafood unlike the usual seafood market.

Menu was extensive, filled with variety of Nigiri and Sashimi options. Items here may be considered costly by Taiwanese Standards but to us, comparing these portions, they were definitely much cheaper than we would have in Singapore. Sashimi slices are thicker and portions are bigger.

During peak hours where patrons get to stand closely side by side, the servers may tend to make mistake serving to the wrong customers.

Sushi that were not ours but served by mistake
We ordered half dozen of Oysters and shared among ourselves. Usually I will not have eaten more than 1 raw salmon but this is exceptional. It tasted different from the ones I usually had.

We had enjoyed the freshly squeeze lemon juice over the raw oyster with some onion, soy sauce as well as Wakame (Seaweed). It gave us another idea of how to pair the raw oysters.

Thick Cut of Sashimi
The grilled beef ribs did not disappoint. It was succulent and perfectly done with some peppercorns on it, if you want additional flavour, they do provide fried garlic by the side.

Juicy
Smoky flavour from the grilled king prawn. Though looked dried up on its shell, the flesh still remains tender and juicy. To enhance the taste, squeeze the kaffir lime juice on it.

Grilled King Prawn
Grilled scallops came in a sticks of four with same sweet black sauce. Taste was elevated by squeezing the Kaffir Lime juice on it, lending a citrus fragrant and refreshing taste.

Are You a Sashimi Lover?

How about some Raw Tuna ?
One of the best Miso Soups we ever had with generous chunks of salmon, big prawns and seaweeds. It was served hot and comes free ordering the Deluxe Nigiri Sushi Combo.

Simple and no frills. If you like Clams, you won't mind savoring down the bowl of clam soup, naturally sweet, warming up your tummy. Freshness is not question here as everything you order in AAD will be fresh.

Clam Soup 蛤汤- NT $ 150
Though we order 2 kinds of Clam Soup, I would say that this garlic version is more or less similar to the non garlic version just that it has additional ginger strips in reducing the seafood smell.

Clam Soup with Garlic 蛤蒜头汤 - NT $ 150
Remember to bring additional cash to AAD as they do not accept Credit Cards. The standing sushi bar do not accept reservations and base on first come first serve basis.
