DonBuDon, meaning "do you understand", is a play on the Taiwanese word for a rice bowl meal. Which in turn is a loanword from Japanese "donburi". The name embodies the multicultural heritage of Taiwan and at the same time denotes a light-hearted break from tradition - which one might not understand at first. The cuisine here is not traditional Japanese nor is it Taiwanese - but a modern and elevated reinterpretation of donburi and omakase-style dining without pretension or having to spend hours sitting at a meal.
For the uninitiated, choose from a diverse selection of donburis and sides. They are all masterfully put together with the best ingredients, but for a taste of DonBuDon’s essence try the shabu Japanese wagyu and fresh seafood bowl -- the pairing is untraditional but divine. For the next level, trust in the seasoned chefs for a unique omakase dining experience customized to each guest's needs and dietary considerations. This is truly the star of the show and a delight to the senses.
And for those who enjoy a tipple, there is an exclusive menu for pre-dinner aperitifs and after-dinner digestives designed and served by the mixologists from the upstairs speakeasy bar Oopsy Daisy.
It all may sound difficult to imagine, but after the experience, you will understand!
