Le Palais gets three stars in the MICHELIN Guide Taipei 2018

Michelin is pleased to unveil the selection for the very first MICHELIN Guide Taipei, which selects a total of 110 total establishments, spanning 33 cuisine types, including 20 restaurants awarded one or more stars.

Michael Ellis, International Director of the MICHELIN guides, comments: “Taipei is a city that has incredibly rich gastronomic history and the variety of cuisines available is amazing. Taipei has also given birth to a truly dynamic and innovative dining scene – much to the delight of a local clientele that is ever more curious to discover new flavours and different experiences.”

In this first selection of the MICHELIN guide Taipei, Cantonese restaurant Le Palais has been awarded three stars. Serving fine, delicate Cantonese dishes as well as other types of Chinese authentic cooking, Le Palais is helmed by Chef Chan, who moved to Taiwan from Macau nearly 20 years ago. “Chef Chan and his team have mastered the art of cooking a variety of Chinese cuisine types, and the dining experience here truly outstanding; worth a special journey! The Cantonese-style crispy roast duck, lobster, tofu and other dishes are remarkable, and baked egg custard tarts are sublime. All of the chef’s creations have won inspectors over” continues Michael Ellis.

Two restaurants gain two stars in the selection of the MICHELIN guide Taipei 2018: Ryu Gin, a Japanese contemporary restaurant which delivers creative modern Japanese cuisine using the best of the island’s ingredients and introduces subtle elements of Taiwanese gastronomy to the dishes, and The Guest House, a restaurant serving Chinese food where Hunan and Sichuan dishes are transformed into tasteful presentations revealing great textures and taste.

Seventeen establishments showcasing cuisine ranging from European contemporary, Japanese, Barbeque to Hangzhou cuisine are awarded one star this year. European contemporary restaurants MUME and Longtail, French contemporary restaurants L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and La Cocotte by Fabien Vergé each won a star. Taiwanese cuisine in the one star category is represented by Golden Formosa and Ming Fu. RAW, belonging to Andre Chiang also won a star, as well as Taïrroir, an innovative restaurant. Two Cantonese restaurants Ya Ge and Three Coins were featured in the one star selection this year. There are also three sushi restaurants Kitcho, Sushi Nomura and Sushi Ryu who won a star each.

In addition, the Bib Gourmand category that was released last week rounded up a total of 36 eateries, out of which 10 were Street Food from Night Markets. The selection reveals that Street Market is integral to the daily livelihoods of Taiwanese people who do not see the place merely as a sightseeing spot, but rather, one with lots of stalls with good snacks and filling meals. There is also a good diversity of food in the Bib Gourmand selection, where altogether 11 cuisine types were found including the very famous Taiwanese Beef Noodles, as well as authentic Taiwanese cuisine.

The complete selection of the MICHELIN Guide Taipei 2018 can be found on the 2018 MICHELIN Guide Taipei website https://guide.michelin.com/tw/en/taipei and is also available in bookstores. The new selection includes:

1 restaurant with three stars
2 restaurants with two stars
17 restaurants with one star
36 restaurants with a Bib Gourmand
