Taipei, Taiwan - One of my favorite seats in a restaurant is at the counter in front of an open kitchen. And there I perched at Yuzu Japanese Kitchen on my last visit to Taipei. Dark and sleek, the decor in this boutique restaurant centers around the open kitchen, where the masterminds behind the refined Japanese concoctions calmly assemble their creations. With the deliciously fresh ingredients on display, diners can see that their meal is starting off on the right foot, and when the food arrives, the elegant yet simple presentation succeeds in making the most of the day's bounty.
