Restaurant MUME Le Blanc baan COAST


“MUME” means plum blossom in Latin. This flower not only represents Taiwan, but is also the name of Richie’s mother. Chosen as the name of his first restaurant, it shows his passion for the land as well as the intention of passing on the traditions.

The MUME team has continued to dazzle diners with flavors materialized through refined European cooking techniques and exclusive local ingredients.

Chef Richie Lin believes that cuisine takes root in the land. To this end, he has launched a laboratory dedicated to further exploring local ingredients, innovating, as well as impressing more people with the beauty of Taiwan through MUME creations.
