In the realm of gastronomy, where each dish is a narrative and every flavour a verse, the unveiling of the Michelin Guide list is akin to the grand premiere of a literary masterpiece. For the 16th edition of the Michelin Guide Hong Kong and Macau, the stage was once again set in Macau, where the stars of the gastronomic galaxy aligned on 14 March to celebrate excellence in dining.

In an edition that overall lacks any big announcement or surprise, the elevation of Italian restaurant Noi (Hong Kong) and Chinese gem Huaiyang Garden (Macau) to ‘excellent cuisine worth a detour’ means that two new two-Michelin-starred restaurants are now shining brighter on the local – and international – scene. And the culinary constellation continues to shimmer with 7 new additions to the list. These are Racines (Hong Kong), Feuille (Hong Kong), Cristal Room by Anne-Sophie Pic (Hong Kong), Mora (Hong Kong), The Legacy House (Hong Kong), Chef Tam’s Season (Macau), and Sushi Kinetsu (Macau).

Amidst the celebrations, the unveiling of a new Michelin Green Star shines once again the spotlight on Feuille and the restaurant’s dedication to eco-friendly initiatives and to sourcing 80% of its ingredients from local organic farms and small suppliers. As diners indulge in the vegetable-driven menu, accompanied by ethically sourced seafood and meat produce, they embark on a culinary journey that transcends mere sustenance, embracing a philosophy of harmony between flavours and environmental stewardship.

In addition to the culinary accolades bestowed upon restaurants, the Michelin Guide Hong Kong and Macau 2024 also honours individuals whose contributions to the gastronomic world are exemplary. From the remarkable skills of Shinya Goshima (restaurant Godenya in Hong Kong), recipient of the MICHELIN Guide Sommelier Award, to the innovative spirit of Ming Fai Choi (restaurant Mora in Hong Kong), honoured with the MICHELIN Guide Young Chef Award, and the warm hospitality of Lydia Yung (restaurant The Legacy House in Hong Kong), celebrated with the MICHELIN Guide Service Award, these special recognitions serve as a testament to the diverse talents and expertise within the culinary realm.
