JL Studio in Taiwan Wins Coveted ‘Miele One To Watch’ Award


Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants has announced that JL Studio in Taichung, Taiwan, is the 2019 recipient of the prestigious Miele One To Watch Award.

The award was selected by the organisers of Asia’s Best 50 Best Restaurants, in collaboration with its regional experts, the Miele One To Watch title is presented to a restaurant that is outside the Asia’s 50 Best list but identified as the rising star of the region.

Opened in 2017, JL Studio is the reflection of chef-owner Jimmy Lim’s upbringing and cultural influence. Born in Singapore, Lim presents modern interpretations of classic dishes from his home city. Combining traditional Singapore flavours and refined cooking techniques, Lim’s “Mod-Sin” menu translates and elevates much-loved Singaporean dishes with creative flair and a progressive approach.

“Having JL Studio named this year’s Miele One To Watch is a huge validation for myself and the team,” said Lim, “Although we are a very young restaurant, this honour encourages us to continue challenging ourselves, striving for excellence and discovering new ways to reinterpret Singapore cuisine.”

Growing up in Singapore, Lim spent most of his childhood helping in his family’s restaurant. After graduating from a local culinary school, he won the 2006 WACS World Young Chef Challenge and moved to Taichung, where he worked at the award-winning Le Moût restaurant for seven years.

William Drew, Group Editor of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, says: “JL Studio celebrates Chef Lim’s culinary heritage and honours the authentic flavours of his childhood. The chef’s creativity, attention to detail and commitment to push the creative boundaries of gastronomy have made his restaurant a worthy recipient of the Miele One To Watch Award.”

Using ingredients sourced from surrounding farms in the Taichung area, Lim offers elegant interpretations of his homeland’s cuisine. Diners choose between the Experience or Discovery tasting menus and are served expertly plated versions of Singapore’s iconic hawker fare – from Chilli Crab and Nasi Lemak to Curry Puffs and Kueh Pie Tee – reimagined for a fine dining setting. Designed to welcome up to 20 guests, the restaurant’s interiors are intimate and understated.
