The 16th edition of the Michelin Guide for Hong Kong and Macau was unveiled on Thursday, during which it was announced that five restaurants in Hong Kong were given their first Michelin Stars. Cristal Room by Anne-Sophie Pic, Racines, Mora, and The Legacy House were either newly awarded or promoted to one-star status, while Feuille was also bestowed with the Michelin Green Star.

In addition, seven restaurants in the city retained their coveted three Michelin stars: 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo – Bombana, Caprice, Forum, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Sushi Shikon, Ta Vie, and T’ang Court. This is the guide’s highest award, given for the “superlative cooking of chefs at the peak of their profession”.

This year, there are 12 Hong Kong restaurants with two Michelin stars, with Noi being the only establishment that was elevated to two-star status for its season-driven omakase menu that changes every 2-3 months and outstanding wine pairings. There are now a total of 60 one Michelin star restaurants in Hong Kong, as well as four with Michelin Green stars.

There were other special awards that had Hong Kong representation. Shinya Goshima from Godenya was bestowed with the Sommelier Award, Lydia Yung from The Legacy House was given the Service Award, and Choi Ming Fai from Mora received the Young Chef Award. Last week, Michelin released its Bib Gourmand guide for 2024 and added seven new eateries from Hong Kong to the list, bringing the city’s total number of value-for-money gourmet experiences to 67.
