There's never been a better time to experience gourmet dining in Taiwan. During this year's Michelin awards, the storied guide recognized 321 establishments, 148 in Taipei, 64 in Taichung, 56 in Tainan, and 53 in Kaohsiung. The group was made up of a range of mouthwatering dining options from the street eats that Taiwan is best known for (aka "Bib Gourmands") to high-end dining choices -- including two newly minted three-star options. Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of Michelin Guides joined ICRT's Hope Ngo to talk about how the selections were made, and why the storied international gourmet guide is captivated by Taiwan's dining scene as a whole.
