This is the third year that Le Palais get the 3 star award. It’s also the only restaurant that wins Michelin 3 star in Taiwan.

|Logy N||RAW||Shoun Ryugin|
|Sushi Amamoto||Tairrior||The Guest House|
Logy was opened in 2018. This 13-seater restaurant is a spin-off from the celebrated Florilège in Tokyo. On the menu, local ingredients are finessed by modern techniques and strong Asian influences.
The owner-chef of the world-famous Restaurant André in Singapore opened Raw in his home town in 2014. The 9-course prix-fixe menu showcases the chef’s creative take on Taiwanese cuisine with occasional street food influence.
Sister to RyuGin in Tokyo, Shoun RyuGin delivers similarly creative cuisine using local produce. The head chef visits local farms regularly and prepares the food using traditional Japanese techniques.
The classically decorated sushi-ya has 12 seats at a solid cypress counter. The humble and friendly chef imports the seasonal fish mostly from Kyushu, and some from Tokyo, to be hand-pressed on sushi rice cooked in natural spring water from Nagano.
The name “Tairrior” is a combination of “Taiwan” and “Terrior”. The brand emphasizes the spirit of localization with transnational inspiration. \
Impressive skills transform seemingly simple dishes into tasteful presentations revealing great textures and taste. The menu is largely Huai Yang and Sichuan in origin, but with a Taiwanese twist.
