Nelson just got his MBA from Waseda and we celebrated by having dinner in one of the private dining rooms at San Want Hotel. Mom and Dad got him a pen. I made him a card from one of my hangas.
My favorite dish there - egg pudding with uni, ikura, caviar, salmon, lobster and half the rest of the ocean steamed in a goose egg
Whisky lobster risotto
Some kind of cake with cheese in it, hot on the outside and cool from ice cream on the inside. Yum.

Also a great place to stay if you're visiting Taipei. It's very conveniently located, smack right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle, with quick access to the subway.
