With the publication of this year’s “MICHELIN Guide Taipei, Taichung, Tainan, Kaohsiung 2022”, which includes 321 restaurants, it is no longer a secret that Taiwanese cuisine, including local street food, is the one of the best dining experiences in Asia. In just four years, the MICHELIN Guide has grown from 110 recommended restaurants in the capital city of Taipei to 321 restaurants in the west coast cities of Taipei, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung.
In order to raise awareness of Taiwan’s contributions to the culinary world and inspire international travelers to enjoy the dining experience that awaits them in Taiwan, the Taiwan Tourism Board is collaborating with local Taiwanese restaurants Boiling Point and Wushiland Boba to organize the Taiwan Foodie Travel Sweepstakes. This promotion includes limited-time menu items and surprise appearances from Oh! Bear, Taiwan’s friendliest black bear, and a chance to travel to Taiwan to indulge in the freshest local culinary delights.
Participating Los Angeles restaurant Boiling Point is known for promoting Taiwanese hot pot culture on the West Coast. Since opening its inaugural location in 2004, the franchise has grown to include 28 restaurants in the western United States, 3 in Canada, and even a location in Japan’s trendy Shibuya district. With a huge selection of hot soups to choose from, including house specialties, Taiwanese spices and milk cream curry, as well as a range of street food-inspired dishes like spicy fermented tofu and beef brisket. garlic pork, the restaurant is the perfect destination for curious foodies salivating for a taste of Taiwan．
Wushiland Boba, which imports tea leaves directly from Taiwan, offers Californians a taste of authentic handmade Taiwanese bubble tea. Its commitment to using the best and most authentic ingredients has helped the brand come a long way since its founding in Tainan, Taiwan, in 1994. Today, it has five locations in Southern California. During the raffle period, Wushiland Boba will offer one of Taiwan’s cult and unusual recipes: Four Seasons Tea with Coconut Jelly, Boba and Pearls, also known as “Menu secrecy #1”.
In 2018, Taipei became the eighth city in Asia to receive a dedicated MICHELIN Guide. In 2020, the MICHELIN Guide has expanded to Taichung. With the enrichment of this year’s “2022 MICHELIN Guide: Taipei, Taichung, Tainan & Kaohsiung”, including Starred, Bib Gourmand and Selected restaurants, the complete selection of 2022 restaurants in the MICHELIN Guide in Taiwan now has 321 restaurants, including 170 restaurants in Taipei, 68 in Taichung, 44 in Tainan and 39 in Kaohsiung. A testament to Taiwan’s delicious and affordable street food, 141 of these restaurants have been awarded the Bib Gourmand distinction, an award reserved for restaurants offering three courses for less than NT$1,000 (about $32). Some, like the “Oyster Egg Omelette” stall at the Ningxia Night Market, are so modest that they are only identified by their one signature dish.

One grand prize winner will receive round-trip airfare and a Taiwan tour package for two; three first prize winners will receive initial luggage sets; several finalists will receive travel essentials such as instant cameras, tech pouches, portable chargers and travel adapters.
