From fine dining to street food, one of the best things about living in Hong Kong has to be that we are spoilt for choice when it comes to Michelin star restaurants. The 13th and latest version of the guide, the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2021, lists 69 restaurants in Hong Kong and 18 in Macau which have been given the prestigious stars. In all, 277 eateries across the two locations were recognised in some way.
There was no change in the three-star list, with seven Hong Kong and three Macau restaurants maintaining their stars for another year. HK’s three-star venues, which are deemed ‘exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey’, are as follows:
- L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon
- Lung King Heen
- 8½ Otto e Mezzo – Bombana
- T’ang Court
- Sushi Shikon
The trio of three-starred restaurants in Macau consists of Jade Dragon, Robuchon au Dôme and The Eight.
Two- and One-star Restaurants
This year’s guide has 18 two-star eateries, with 12 of those in Hong Kong. New entrants on list, up from one star last year, are L’Envol and Tate Dining Room.
There are now 59 one-star ‘quality cooking, worth a stop’ restaurants, with 50 of them in Hong Kong. There are seven new one-star HK entrants in this year’s guide:
- Man Ho
- The Araki
- The Chairman
- Yè Shanghai (Tsim Sha Tsui)
More than 60 additional restaurants were given a Bib Gourmand by the Michelin guide inspectors, which recognises restaurants which have three dishes for a maximum price of HK$400. Plus, in a totally new category, Roganic in Hong Kong was awarded a Michelin Green Star, which highlights ‘the efforts of restaurants operating at the forefront of their field with sustainable practices, as well as fulfilling a role in spreading their vision’.
Now that we know which restaurants received all the gongs, it’s time to start booking some tables – yum!
