Michelin 2020: 16 newcomers receive stars in Hong Kong and Macau

It’s that time of the year again: To acknowledge the geniuses in the culinary industry, recognise the best restaurants and look forward to more ground-breaking dishes. Taking into consideration the quality of the ingredients, mastery of flavours and cooking techniques, the personality of chefs in representing the eatery, value for money and consistency between visits, Michelin unveiled the 12th edition list for the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020 at Grand Hyatt, City of Dreams Macau earlier this week.

Followed by the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020 gala dinner, world-class chefs such as Alain Ducasse, Pierre Herme, Kelvin Au Yeung, Fabrice Vulin, Lau Yiu Fai, Kunio Tokuoka and more gathered to celebrate the exciting announcement.

Focusing on sustainability, guests enjoyed seven exquisite dishes that were created with consideration of the environment, starting from ingredient vendors, venue decor and production. As the guide that celebrates dining excellence around the world, Michelin has already made a step by reducing the impact on the planet, hinting that it’s also time for restaurants to do the same.
