Hong Kong is well-known for its savoury and diverse cuisine. The city is home to numerous luxury restaurants, as well as to some of the best street food in Asia. We’ve picked 10 must-try Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurants that represent the diverse cuisines served up in Hong Kong — from Cantonese and Italian dishes, to Vietnamese and Japanese food. They are known to have high-quality food, a total of three-course meals at a reasonable price, and a close-to-Michelin experience.

What is Michelin Bib Gourmand?

The name Bib Gourmand came from the Michelin company’s nickname for their mascot “The Michelin Man”, who is officially known as Bibendum. This Bib Gourmand guide is close to Michelin stars, but it focuses on restaurants that serve good quality food within HK$300. Since 1997, Michelin has been creating this guide to acknowledge restaurants that offer great dining experiences across the world, and there are 67 such establishments in Hong Kong.

At first, the Bib Gourmand offered the label “R” to identify restaurants that met these standards. Bib Gourmand is well-loved due to the great creative logo of the Michelin man licking his lips to represent great food deals. This gives the new lens of Michelin, where food out of high-end restaurants can also be qualified as great examples of culinary excellence.

Man Yuen — Wong Tai Sin

Man Yuen is a recent addition to the Bib Gourmand list, thanks to its quality Cantonese dishes made with fresh ingredients. The fact that it’s tucked away in a public housing estate in East Kowloon doesn’t stop diners from making reservations to feast on classics such as wok hei-laden “king of stir-fries” with fresh, dried, and sakura shrimps. The dining experience here is elevated by the fact that the kitchen staff and front-of-house teams have worked in exclusive clubs, hotels, and restaurants.

Address: Shop S02, 2F, Tin Ma Court Commercial Centre, 55 Chuk Yuen Road, Wong Tai Sin
Opening Hours: 11am-10.30pm

Kwan Kee is easy to find, thanks to its large traditional sign that stands out from the street. The restaurant is known for its clay pot dishes, including beef, fish, chicken, goat, and vegetables. They use a blend of three types of rice as a base that is lightly brushed with oil to create its golden crisp-and-crunchy texture, and top it with delicious ingredients. The cooking technique involves trapping the steam to retain moisture in the ingredients and give the dishes their trademark chewy texture and smoky flavour. The house signature dishes are white eel, pig bone soup, stewed lamb, and house special drunken chicken.

Address: Shop 1, Wo Yick Mansion, 263 Queen’s Road West, Sai Ying Pun, Western District
Opening hours: 11am-2:30pm & 6pm to 10:30pm (Monday-Saturday); 6pm to 10:30pm (Sunday)

Po Kee is a locally recognised Cantonese roasted goose favourite spot in the Western District of Hong Kong. It has been in business for more than 40 years and is loved by locals of all ages. The shop is famous for its roast goose, which is lean, juicy, crispy skin and served with Lai Fan (rice noodle). We also like their Char Siu (barbecue pork), with its hint of smoky flavour and the right amount of sweetness from the honey. Po Kee attracts lots of customers from across Hong Kong, so make sure to arrive before 2pm before the goose is sold out.

Address: Shop P, G/F, 425 Queen’s Road West, Shek Tong Tsui, Western District
Opening hours: 11:30am to 8pm (Closed Sunday)
