Restaurants awarded three stars:
- Lung King Heen -- must call timeout for a Chinese lesson: Lung means "dragon" here, not "paired compound saccular thoracic organs that constitute the basic respiratory organ of air-breathing vertebrates"
- Robuchon a Galera (only entry from Macao)
Restaurants awarded two stars:
- Bo Innovation -- Call me outmoded but I'm not sold on a chef who cooks with cigar in his mouth at all, you?
- Caprice -- is it a first for Michelin? Both Lung King Heen & Caprice are from FourSeasons Hong Kong!
- L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon -- it is getting a bit boring to see this again and again, ain't it?
- Shang Palace
- Summer Palace
- T’ang Court
Restaurants awarded one star:
- Fook Lam Moon
- Lei Garden (IFC)
- Lei Garden (Tsim Sha Tsui) -- when was the last time you saw Michelin doleing out star to chains?! Mind you, unlike Ducasse, Keller or Ramsey's, the Lei Garden doesn't tout on the fame of their chefs at all. A palpable victory for restaurateurs over the unsung kitchen heroes in our culture.
- Ming Court
- Regal Palace
- Shanghai Garden
- The Golden Leaf
- The Square
- Tim’s Kitchen
- Yung Kee
Yippy! I am so gonna plan a culinary pilgrimage to Hong Kong next year with the guide.
Wait, I AM living in Hong Kong... Damn, half the excitement just gone.
Okay, my city, right or wrong... But still, the remaining half faded out too now that it occurs to me all restaurants described on the guide as either worth a special journey or detour are reachable with an Octopus card*... [* equivalent to the Oyster card of London]
