Jimmy Lim is a Singaporean through and through. After working at lauded restaurants across the globe, including French Laundry in California, Noma and Geranium in Copenhagen, and Per Se in New York, an opportunity to open his own restaurant in Taichung, Taiwan came in 2017. Tapping into his culinary influences growing up in Singapore and the culinary techniques he learned from his previous stints, he opened JL Studio which serves up the flavours of his home but using Taiwanese ingredients. 

It quickly impressed gourmands and critics alike—even making history by being the first restaurant in Taichung to earn two Michelin stars. It also entered the prestigious Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list by nabbing the 26th spot. 

Based in Taiwan for five years, Lim is flying back to Singapore next month to take part in the Michelin Guide Singapore’s 2022 star revelation and gala dinner on July 12. With the theme Singapore Celebrated, he will join a selection of local chefs and Singaporean chefs based overseas to cook up dishes that pay tribute to Singapore cuisine.

Before the big event, we catch up with Lim to talk about his culinary influences, favourite ingredient and the person he would love to cook with—dead or alive.
