Le Moût, creation of Grand Chef Lanshu Chen, is a highlight of Taiwan’s gastronomic scene. Situated in the heart of bustling Taichung, the restaurant has garnered international praise since launching. The name Le Moût derives from the French word for the process of fermenting grape juice, a simple substance, into a fine and complex wine. Similarly, Chef Lanshu Chen takes simple ingredients and transforms them into sophisticated, exceptional dishes. Presented in an exquisite French and elegant manner, the flavours are inspired by local produce and memory of the land; it is her “Cuisine de Terroir”. The interiors, meanwhile, echo the approach of its chef, pairing antique chandeliers, sleek modern mirrors and rich velvet upholstered seats.
