Solidifying itself as a top destination for gourmands, Hong Kong’s dining scene shines in the Michelin guide’s latest selection.
Michelin has just released its 2020 selection of the best dining destinations across Hong Kong and Macau. With an incredible 70 Michelin-starred restaurants in Hong Kong, and a further 20 in Macau, foodies are sure to be well looked after.
Among the 16 restaurants that received new stars in the 2020 edition, there are two new three-star restaurants, three new two-star restaurants and 11 new one-star restaurants. Speaking of the awards, Gwendal Poullennec, the International Director of Michelin Guides stated “This year’s selections are testament to Hong Kong and Macau’s unwavering position as benchmark cities in the gastronomic world, where tradition and modernity can co-exist in a dynamic and delicious blend of authenticity and ambitious innovation”.
New additions to Hong Kong’s dining scene that have claimed the coveted three-star position include Cantonese restaurant, Forum, and renowned sushi restaurant, Sushi Shikon. The likes of Caprice, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Lung King Heen, 8½ Otto e Mezzo – Bombana and T’ang Court have all retained their three-star ratings.
When it comes to new additions claiming one-star positions, Louise, Zest by Konishi and Roganic – all of which opened their doors this year – were all rewarded. Continuing its success from 2019, Black Sheep Restaurants retained its stars for both New Punjab Club and Belon, with Le Garcon Saigon and Carbone gaining The Plate award.
Hong Kong hotels have also proved themselves as global dining destinations. Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong continues to be a multi-starred culinary destination bringing home eight stars – the most Michelin stars to be found in one hotel anywhere in the world! L’Envol and Rùn, found in The St. Regis Hong Kong, and Gaddi’s at The Peninsula also claimed their first stars.
