Shoun RyuGin, Taipei, Taiwan #2MichelinStars #Asias50Best

Sister to the original RyuGin in Tokyo, Taipei’s Shoun RyuGin serves celebrates Taiwanese produce, presented using Japanese kaiseki techniques and sensibilities. The menu features a map of the ‘Ilha Formosa’ ("beautiful island") to show where those ingredients come from.

They rank No.31 on Asia’s 50 Best restaurants (here) and boast 2 Michelin Stars.  Dining here is a special experience. I enjoyed the tea pairing as well as the artfully presented dishes featuring premium ingredients.
