Regent Taipei has invited Chef Paul Lee to be its first chef-in-residence at Taste Lab following the enormous success of his work for the 2017 Regent Galleria Gala. At Taste Lab, the former executive chef of Michelin-starred restaurant PATINA will be showcasing creative contemporary American cuisine inspired by the West Coast.

A native of Taiwan who grew up in Orange County, Chef Lee’s culinary philosophy is largely influenced by his time growing up in Southern California, where he was exposed to an array of diverse cultural flavours from various cuisines.

Diners can expect to see Chef Lee’s signature style in his menu that features unique dishes such as Foie Gras Donut with Strawberry Jam- an interesting blend of his two favourite foods. The Duck Leg, Grilled Cheese, Black Truffle combines duck leg confit, Comte cheese and truffle in a brioche bun that is lightly pan-fried to perfection – Chef Lee’s version of a grilled cheese sandwich. Those who prefer something familiar can indulge in the tender Beef Short Rib, a deconstructed variation of Regent Taipei’s classic Braised Beef Noodle dish.
