Cantonese eateries get two-star rating in latest Michelin Guide

Two local restaurants serving Cantonese-style fare and an outlet offering European cuisine are the three new recipients of two-star recommendations in the latest Michelin Guide to Hong Kong and Macau released on Thursday.

The new two-star eateries are Cantonese restaurant Yan Toh Heen; Duddell’s, which serves contemporary Cantonese cuisine; and The Principal, which serves comforting European fare. All three moved up from their one-star rating earned last year.

The 2015 guide also includes eight new one-star recommendations. They include Yat Lok and Kam’s Roast Goose, which both serve roasted meat.

Kam’s Roast Goose was established by a son of the founder of the famous Yung Kee Restaurant in Central. The eatery, in Wan Chai, was given the one-star rating within four months after opening.

Meanwhile, five restaurants have maintained their three-star recognition.

Among them is Lung King Heen, which serves seafood and dim sum. It has kept the three-star rating for seven straight years.  Italian restaurant 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA has maintained its three stars for the fourth year.

The latest guide includes five three-star, 14 two-star and 45 one-star restaurants in Hong Kong.

Another 65 have been granted the status of Bib Gourmands, a recognition for excellent food at moderate prices.

Eleven Macau restaurants were also recognized with stars.
