Birthday Kaiseki Dinner at Shoun Ryugin Taipei (Taipei, Taiwan)

During the time I was traveling in Taipei, it was the week of my birthday. While researching the various restaurants I would like to have dinner during my stay, I didn’t realize that the 3* Michelin kaiseki restaurant in Tokyo, Nihonryori Ryugin has a sister restaurant Shoun Ryugin Taipei. I didn’t have the chance to make reservations at the mothership when I traveled to Tokyo then, I thought why not dine at its sister restaurant in Taipei? I am aware the the restaurant isn’t exactly the same but at least uses Chef Seiji Yamamoto’s philosphy on seasonality and local Taiwan..
