The Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020 gives one or more Michelin stars to 20 restaurants in Macao.
In the 12th edition of the annual guide to the best places to eat in Macao and Hong Kong, three Macao establishments – Jade Dragon, Robuchon au Dôme and The Eight – keep for another year the three stars they were given in the 2019 guide.
Among the seven Macao restaurants given two stars in the latest edition is one appearing in the Michelin Guide for the first time: Sichuan Moon, which opened last year in the Wynn Palace integrated resort.
The French publisher of the various editions of the Michelin Guide issued a written statement describing Sichuan Moon as a modern Sichuan restaurant fronted by Taiwanese celebrity chef André Chiang, and run by Malaysian executive chef Zor Tan. The press release said Sichuan Moon’s tasting menu challenged preconceptions about Sichuan food with dishes that qualified as works of art.
The latest guide awards a second star to Wing Lei in the Wynn Macau integrated resort. The Michelin Guide publisher described Wing Lei as a Cantonese fine-dining restaurant led steadily by a Cantonese chef, Chan Tak Kwong.
The Macao restaurants that keep for another year the two stars they were given in the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2019 are Alain Ducasse at Morpheus, Feng Wei Ju, Golden Flower, Mizumi (Macau) and The Tasting Room.
Another 10 Macao restaurants keep for another year the one star they were given in the 2019 edition. They are King, Lai Heen, 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo Bombana, Pearl Dragon, Shinji by Kanesaka, The Golden Peacock, The Kitchen, Tim’s Kitchen, Ying and Zi Yat Heen.
The latest guide gives seven establishments in Macao the Bib Gourmand tag, which signifies that each offers three-course meals (without drinks) for no more than MOP400.
The press release quoted Michelin Guide International Director Gwendal Poullennec as saying: “This year’s selections are testament to Hong Kong and Macao’s unwavering position as benchmark cities in the gastronomic world, where tradition and modernity can co-exist in a dynamic and delicious blend of authenticity and ambitious innovation.”
