[Taipei] The Taipei Michelin Guide has announced their Bib Gourmand awardees, with 24 street food stalls found in night markets included, of which 15 of them are new entries.
Interestingly, the guide chose to announce the Bib Gourmand restaurant/eateries and street food listees separately this year.
9 of last year’s awardees held their spots, which include A Nan Sesame Chicken 阿男麻油雞, Stinky Tofu Boss 臭老闆 現蒸臭豆腐, Liu Yu Zai 劉芋仔芋餅, Rong’s Pork Liver 豬肝榮仔, Chen Dong Pork Ribs Medicinal Herbs Soup 陳董藥燉排骨, Fu Zhou Shi Zu Pepper Bun 福州世祖胡椒, Hai You Pork Ribs 海友十全排骨, Liang Ji Lu Wei 梁記滷味, and Luo Ji Xiao Chao 駱記小炒.
The one name missing in action is Shi Boss Spicy Tofu 施老闆麻辣臭豆腐 from Raohe Night Market 饒河夜市.
Of all the new entries, the more familiar names should include Fang Chia Shredded Chicken on the Rice 方家雞肉飯 from Ningxia Night Market 寧夏夜市, Chung Chia Sheng Jian Bao 鍾家原上海生煎包 from Shilin Night Market 士林夜市, and Lan Chia Guabao 藍家割包 from Gong Guan Night Market. (I am one of the unfortunate few who been to Gong Guan several times, always to find Lan Jia closed.)
The listing remains controversial, as several worthy stalls and night markets such as Shi Da Night Market 師大夜市 remain excluded.
