The MICHELIN Guide Taipei 2019 is launched today and in this second edition of the Taipei Guide, three new 2 star restaurants and four new 1 star restaurants are added to the selection.
A completely new entry with 2 stars in the Guide in 2019, Sushi Amamoto is an authentic sushi bar with just 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. There are 20 courses in the prix-fixe omakase menu, including 12 pieces of nigiri.
As well as the stars, there are 25 new Bib Gourmand establishments in the 2019 Taipei selection, including restaurants and street food vendors in night markets, with each offering ‘good quality, good value cooking’, which means a three course meal for a fixed price not exceeding NT$1,000 (around €29).
