Since the swanky My Humble House arrived at the ultra-fashionable Le Méridien Taipei, Taipei’s A-listers have been jockeying for tables. The menu is all about innovative twists on Cantonese classics (ranging from seafood to dim sum to barbecue), and the sleek red-and-black décor accented with Chinese modern art canvases is similarly inspired. In fact, the focus on creative innovation is so central to the My Humble House concept that there’s even a partner art gallery in the hotel lobby.
A who’s who of Taipei as well as international jetsetters from the hotel.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
It’s technically upscale casual, but given the scene, we’d make sure to break out our high-end labels.
GO HERE WITH
A date; clients or colleagues; girlfriends - for kicking off a stylish afternoon out
WHY WE LIKE IT
The food is truly excellent (and the people-watching is pretty entertaining too).
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The struggle to get reservations. Book your table as far in advance as possible.
GOOD TO KNOW
This is unrelated to the My Humble House of Beijing and Singapore fame.
