Lunch at Wasabi at Taipei 101

Wasabi restaurant-18

While walking around Taipei 101 the day before we noticed the long lines in front of Wasabi. We took a look at the food and immediately made reservations for lunch. We made sure we were hungry when we conquered Wasabi.

Weekday lunch buffet cost NT$648 or P922 or US$20. Buffet included a wide, wide array of beverages from sodas, juice, green tea milk to coffee and tea.

I was only able to take a few pictures of the  buffet when they stopped me. The sushi and sashimi bar was laid out on a long table. If you just took a piece each you would be stuffed to the max.

There were so many drinks to choose from but I knew what I wanted. I got the green tea milk. As strange as that sounds it was good! Much better than Starbucks’ green tea latte.

I took pictures of everyone’s plates instead. We didn’t get to eat everything on the buffet but we did out best to try most of the excellent food.

Each station had a different color of small plate that you put on a tray. I liked this style of plating. Food with sauce don’t spill on to other food. And it just looks prettier.

The food was very good and there was a big selection to choose from. It was worth every dollar. So if you’re in Taipei try the Japanese buffet at Wasabi for a change.

  1. While I’m appreciative of your effort and suggestion, I can’t agree with your assessment. I had dinner at Wasabi last night and found the food below average. To top it off, I saw tour groups dining there. I guess perhaps the standard had dropped or the good chefs had left. I tried the Jap buffet at Shin Ye a few nights before and it was actually much better. No offence, pls.


  2. No offence taken Joe! 🙂 When we ate there there weren’t any tour groups. You’re probably right maybe they changed chefs. Thanks for visiting my blog!
