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 2022, lists 71 restaurants in Hong Kong and 15 in Macau that have been given the prestigious stars. Find out who they were here!
For another year, there was no change in the three-star list, with seven Hong Kong and three Macau restaurants maintaining their stars from 2021. 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 Stars, One Star & Others
This year’s guide has 17 two-star eateries, one down from last year. A dozen of those are in Hong Kong, including the likes of Tin Lung Heen, Bo Innovation, Écriture and Amber. Amber also earnt the coveted Green Star, which is awarded for sustainability efforts such as cutting down the use of plastic. It was introduced last year, when it was given to Roganic.
Two HK restaurants gained a second star this year: Italian restaurant Octavium in Central, and Cantonese favourite Yan Toh Heen, at the InterContinental.
As for the one-star establishments – which denotes ‘quality cooking, worth a stop’ – there are 59 restaurants on the last. This is the same number as last year, though nine of them are appearing for the first time.
- Seventh Son
- Yong Fu
- Hansik Goo
- Sushi Wadatsumi
- Belon (previous recipient in a new location)
- I M Teppanyaki & Wine (previous recipient in a new location)
Among the other prominent names in the one-star list are the likes of Ando, Duddell’s, Loaf On, Louise, Mandaring Grill & Bar, Roganic, The Chairman and Yardbird.
Another 59 restaurants were given a Bib Gourmand by the Michelin guide inspectors, which recognises restaurants that serve good value food.
In all, it’s an amazing effort by all these restauranteurs, especially in the face of so many challenges over the past 12 months.
Now that we know which restaurants received all the gongs, it’s time to start booking some tables or some takeaway – depending on the current state of play with restrictions. Either way, great food is a guarantee!
The Michelin guide is produced in 28 countries, featuring some of the best gourmet dining in the world as well as new and emerging trends and young chefs. Read more about this year’s winners here.
