Ganso Taiwan Motsunabe Jin is a popular restaurant in Nagoya that introduced the Ganso Taiwan Motsunabe (¥1,706 for one person), a soy sauce-based soup, to the city’s food culture. The dish’s soup stock is made with chicken, mackerel, and bonito flakes. Taiwan ground meat, infused with Kakukyu’s hatcho-miso, is also included in this specialty.
Part of what makes the nabe special and even more delectable are its umami flavors coming from the beef tripe, offal, vegetables, and other ingredients. On top of that, its strong garlic flavor can help increase the stamina of the person eating the dish. Customers can make add-ons to the soup as well if they want to.
The Ganso Taiwan Motsunabe includes a lot of Taiwan ground meat.
The Ganso Taiwan Motsunabe is available in three levels of spiciness: regular, extra spicy, and ultimately spicy. They sometimes even double or triple the amount of hot peppers when serving this dish.
After enjoying the motsunabe, we highly recommend that you order the Taiwan Ramen (¥421 for 1 serving) too.
The Taiwan Ramen has fresh noodles that absorb the flavors of the soup well.
The restaurant also serves a wide variety of side dishes with rare beef parts such as the Korikori-sashi.
Adam’s apple of cattle (¥648).
