The 12th edition of the guide recognises exciting…

Michelin today unveiled its full selection for the MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020, featuring a total of 254 eateries and 52 lodging establishments across the two territories.

Among the 16 restaurants that received new stars in the 2020 edition are 2 new three-star restaurants, 3 new two-star restaurants and 11 new one-star restaurants.

The 12th edition of the guide to Hong Kong and Macau recognises a total of 70 starred restaurants in Hong Kong and 20 starred restaurants in Macau.

The 2020 selection includes:

In Hong Kong

– 7 three-star restaurants (including 2 new/promoted ones)

– 12 two-star restaurants (include 1 new/promoted ones)

– 51 one-star restaurants (including 11 new/promoted ones)

– 65 Bib Gourmand restaurants (including 3 new ones)

In Macau

– 3 three-star restaurants

– 7 two-star restaurants (including 2 new/promoted ones)

– 10 one-star restaurants

– 7 Bib Gourmand restaurants

The 2020 selection is further enriched by 3 new two-star additions (1 in Hong Kong and 2 in
Macau). Contemporary French restaurant Arbor continues its meteoric rise with a promotion
to two stars this year, after debuting on the guide with one star last year. In a calming space
overlooking the bustle of Hong Kong’s Central district, Finnish chef Eric Räty employs
French culinary techniques on mostly Japanese ingredients to deliver intense natural
flavours with Nordic precision and sophistication.
Making its first entry onto the selection this year with two stars is Sichuan Moon in Macau’s
Wynn Palace, a modern Sichuan restaurant fronted by Taiwanese chef André Chiang and
run by Malaysian Executive chef Zor Tan. Tan’s tasting menu challenges pre-conceptions
about Sichuan food with dishes that qualify as works of art.
Over in Wynn Macau, Cantonese fine-dining restaurant Wing Lei, which had one star in last
year’s selection, gains a second star this year under the steady leadership of Cantonese
chef Chan Tak Kwong, who has been with the restaurant since its pre-opening in 2006. With
this new addition, Macau now has seven two-starred establishments in total.
The MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020 also recognises 61 one-star establishments,
including 11 new additions in Hong Kong. These new establishments reflect the city’s
gastronomic vibrancy by offering Cantonese, Shanghainese, Thai, Japanese and French
cooking at exceptional standards.
Both helmed by Japanese chefs, Ryota Kappou Modern offers seasonal Japanese kappostyle menus and Zest by Konishi serves contemporary French cuisine using French and
Japanese ingredients. Cantonese restaurant Run prepares traditional recipes with modern
refinement.

New openings under the watch of seasoned chefs, such as Roganic by UK chef Simon
Rogan, contemporary French restaurant Louise by Julien Royer, modern Thai venue
Aaharn by David Thompson and L’Envol at the new St Regis Hong Kong by Olivier Elzer
deliver exceptional world-class dining experiences.
Meanwhile, long-standing Hong Kong dining institutions such as French restaurants
Gaddi’s and Petrus, Cantonese favourite Fook Lam Moon (Wan Chai) and Shanghainese
Liu Yuan Pavilion impressed MICHELIN inspectors this year with their constant push for
excellence.
Along with the star-rated restaurants, the 2020 selection includes 65 Bib Gourmand
restaurants in Hong Kong and 7 in Macau, which are venues that offer three courses (drinks
not included) for a maximum price of 400 Hong Kong dollars (in Hong Kong) or 400 Pataca
de Macau (in Macau). The three new entrants to the 2020 Bib Gourmand selection are: She
Wong Leung, a snake soup specialist that offers different seasonal herbal broths; bistrostyle Cornerstone by Australian chef Shane Osborn of one-starred Arcane; and casual
Cantonese eatery Hop Sze.
