Bib Gourmand Hong Kong Michelin news

The MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2018 has just released the official list of Bib Gourmand awardees for this year.

This year’s selection includes 82 addresses — 73 in Hong Kong and 9 in Macau, and 17 Hong Kong restaurants are first time-awardees.
Among the new awardees, eight restaurants specialise in Cantonese cuisine. One of them is Ju Xing Home, helmed by 39-year-old chef Wu Jiang Qiao. Wu is a master at cooking up a variety of Cantonese-style side dishes, one of the reasons why Ju Xing Home has become a go-to supper spot for many acclaimed chefs in Hong Kong.

Two restaurants serving Cantonese soup noodles also made the list this year: Eng Kee Noodle Shop is a family business which has been serving Cantonese soup noodles for 23 years, and Mak Man Kee, a 40-year-old establishment where locals can order prawn wontons with springy duck egg noodles swimming in a flavourful broth.

Located in Wan Chai, Trusty Congee King is the first congee shop being awarded Bib Gourmand. The congee here is cooked in fish broth that gives an extra dimension of flavour.

Asian cuisines are also represented in the list. Taiwanese Restaurant Qing Zhuo (directly translated to ‘Please Sit’ in English) is a new entrant to the selection. The restaurant is helmed by two Taiwanese ladies, who serve up traditional Taiwanese dishes and welcoming hospitality with their friendly service.

Adam Cliff’s Samsen, known for its specialty Thai-style boat noodles, is also new on the list this year. The interior of the restaurant is designed to mimic the gritty streets of Thailand, and the food holds no punches. Here, spicy and sour dishes are served as is; chef does nothing to temper down the bold flavours of traditional Thai cuisine.

A Bib Gourmand award is handed out to eateries that offer a quality three-course set menu for a maximum of HKD400.

“The selection highlights the richness of the local culinary scene and the quality of Cantonese cuisine,” comments Michael ELLIS, International Director in charge of the MICHELIN guides. “Our inspectors have discovered more local gourmet offerings including Cantonese stir-fry, congee and noodle, dim sum in attractive prices.”

The launch date of the MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2018 is on 30 November, 2017.
