While we await the full restaurant selection of The Michelin Guide Hong Kong & Macau 2024 to be unveiled, it has been shared that 10 food establishments are newly minted with the Bib Gourmand distinction.

Out of the 10 places, seven are located in Hong Kong and 3 are in Macau. This brings the total number of restaurants and street food to 67 in Hong Kong and 10 in Macau.

“We are delighted to welcome 7 new additions from Hong Kong and 3 from Macau to the Bib Gourmand selection, highlighting the talent and vibrancy that these cities of gastronomy have to offer,” says Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guide. “These 77 Bib Gourmand food establishments not only showcase the thriving food culture that permeates Hong Kong and Macau, but also highlight the many possibilities gourmets looking for great culinary experiences at affordable prices can enjoy.” 

The 16th edition of the Michelin Guide Hong Kong & Macau will be unveiled in full on 14 March 2024. In the meantime, here are the new Bib Gourmand establishments:

Hong Kong

Ăn Chơi
This new Vietnamese joint run by a binational Chinese-Vietnamese couple. They offer bánh mì sandwiches with an array of fillings, and varying versions of phở are made according to different regional traditions. Good drink options to try here are the egg coffee or Vietnamese beer.
Where: Shop A, 15, 17 Mercer St, Sheung Wan

Cheung Hing Kee (Tsim Sha Tsui)
This sheng jian bao shop has more than just the typical sheng jian bao with soupy pork filling, as they offer varieties such as shrimp, mala pork, truffle, crabmeat, and roe.
Where: 48 Lock Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui

Little Napoli
This Italian restaurant has made the leap from the Michelin Selected to the Bib Gourmand title. Come here for the classic Neapolitan pizzas and street foods like ripieno fritto and panuozzo made with only ingredients from Naples, keeping in line with the chef’s hometown traditions. Pizzas such as Margherita or Vesuviana are made to order and served whole, not sliced.
Where: Shop 1, 8 King Kwong St, Happy Valley

Man Yuen
Tucked away in a public housing estate in East Kowloon, this place has people flocking here for quality Cantonese dishes made with fresh ingredients, such as wok hei-laden “king of stir-fries” with fresh, dried, and sakura shrimps.
Where: Shop S02, 2F, Tin Ma Court Commercial Centre, 55 Chuk Yuen Road, Wong Tai Sin

Sang Kee
Despite a relocation, this landmark of Wan Chai since 1976 has won Bib Gourmand recognition once again. Now in a roomier and better lit location, this makes it better to enjoy their salt-baked chicken, pork liver and wolfberry leaves blanched in stock, and baked fish intestine with egg.
Where: 3-4F, Sunshine Plaza, 353 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Sang Kee Foods (Western District)
Their famous Chiuchow-style goose has earned them the Bib Gourmand distinction. The marinated grain-fed goose boasts a firm texture and meaty flavour. Don’t miss out on trying the goose blood curd, web, wing, liver, intestine, and gizzards too.
Where: Shop 4, GF, Wo Yick Mansion, 263 Queen’s Road West, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong

Twins Liangpi Limited (Mong Kok)
Another shop that has moved and reattained its Bib Gourmand distinction. Their glass noodles come in a secret blend of chilli vinegar are topped with shredded cucumber, coriander, peas, and ground peanuts. You can adjust the level of spiciness to your preference.
Where: GF, 99 Hak Po Street, Mong Kok, Hong Kong


With an ambience of yesteryear glamour, it’s fitting that the menu here features traditionally made Cantonese favourites. Recommendations here include the har gow with diced pork fat, the white sugar sponge, green chillies stuffed with minced dace, double-boiled soups, and seafood dishes.
Where: 60 Rua de Hong Chau, Taipa, Macau

Restaurante Litoral (Taipa)
The space here is simple, but the focus will be on the Portuguese and Macanese classics. The portions come in sizes meant for sharing, so this means you’ll get plenty in recommendations like the fresh clams and pork cubes with bold seasoning; the African chicken is coated in shredded coconut and caramelised onion; and the light and fluffy serradura.
Where: Rua do Regedor, Wai Chin Kuok 4 Bloco Nº 53-57 Taipa

Son Tak Kong
Open since 1979, this establishment serves up no-frills, authentic Shun Tak cuisine. The signature here is the creamy fish soup. Also try the sticky rice with sakura shrimps and pine nuts in a cast iron pot.
Where: 106A Rua do Mercadores, Macau, Macau
