[Taipei] The Michelin Guide Taipei has just announced its results, with 24 restaurants awarded stars. (Also read: Taipei Michelin Guide 2019 – Bib Gourmand)
I guess it is fair to say there are no major surprises.
Cantonese Restaurant 君品酒店- 頤宮中餐廳 Le Palais located on the 17th floor of Palais de Chine (君品酒店), remains as the only 3 Stars recipient.
NEW 2-stars recipients include RAW by Chef Andre Chiang, Tairroir and Sushi Anomato. Japanese restaurant Sushi Amamoto debuted with 2 stars.
Four NEW 1-star restaurants are Impromptu by Paul Lee, Logy, Mountain and Sea House, and Tainan Tantsumien Seafood Restaurant. Mountain and Sea House山海樓 is probably the most familiar name, presenting an ode to Taiwanese family recipes presented banquet style.
French Contemporary restaurant La Cocotte by Fabien Verge loses its one star from the previous year.
