Since the launch of the MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2022 in January this year, our inspectors have been out and about in search for new addresses worthy of a place in the MICHELIN Guide selection.
While the MICHELIN Guide distinctions — Stars, Bib Gourmands, and Green Stars — will be revealed during the annual launch ceremony, our MICHELIN Guide inspectors have decided to share some fresh new restaurants that have caught their eyes (and tastebuds), making them new additions to the next MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau selection.
On the second Wednesday every other month, the new restaurants that will be part of the upcoming MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau will be featured in both the MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau website and the MICHELIN Guide mobile application.
How to spot the new restaurants? They will be highlighted with a "New" symbol. Some of these newly recommended establishments will go on to earn distinctions at the MICHELIN Star Revelation ceremony, so check them out and add them to your list of places to dine at!
Here are two of the MICHELIN inspectors' favourite new additions for July 2022 in Hong Kong!
After working and living in Asia for over a decade, chef Olivier Elzer founded this restaurant that aims to allow new ways of enjoying French cuisine. He minted an original concept known as “Yakifrenchy” – a menu that serves French classics like duck confit, frogs’ legs and escargots on skewers, like Japanese yakitori. Local family table culture is taken to another level with meat and fish cooked whole on the bone, perfect for sharing.
True to the chef’s hometown traditions, classic Neapolitan pizzas and street foods like ripieno fritto and panuozzo are made with only ingredients from Naples. Pizzas such as Margherita or Vesuviana are made to order, baked in an Italian stone oven at 400°C, and served whole, not sliced, boasting a puffy, nicely charred crust and gooey centre. It’s basically a grab-and-go pizzeria with just one table, so come early if you want to dine in.
