Bib Gourmand focuses on affordable, quality food, with every restaurant/stall included capable of offering a high-standard three-course meal for less than NT$1,000 (drinks excluded). Seven of the 54 Taipei venues are first-time entries, including Wanhua district’s Tainan cuisine eatery Yijiazi, and North Indian-style restaurant Taj. (You might also like: Michelin Guide Showcases Taipei’s Thriving Culinary Scene: From Street Eats to Tasting Menus)

Interestingly, ten of the 21 eateries highlighted in Taichung actually specialize in Taipei-style fair, such as the deep-fried pork ribs at Chin Chih Yuan, and the claypot chicken at Dong Shan Zhan. Comfort food is also a big part of the Bib Gourmand selections, with both cities having the light shone on places with dishes that warm your stomach. Taichung’s Tai Ke Meat Congee is a notable inclusion, as are Shanghainese noodle soup peddlers No Name Noodles. (Read also: Mai Mien Yen Tsai Restaurant: Michelin Bib Gourmand Purveyor of Classic Qiezai Noodles)
