Michelin guide to launch street food festival in Macau

The Michelin Guide plans to debut a food festival in Macau’s Studio City that will see Michelin-starred, Bib Gourmand and Michelin-recommended restaurants across Asia serving their street food creations and signature delicacies.

The four-day event from 5 to 8 October will feature a star-studded line-up of eateries from Singapore to Japan including the world’s first-ever street food stall to have been awarded a Michelin star, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle from Singapore.

The humble hawker turned Michelin-acclaimed chef, Chan Hon Meng, will be flying in to cook at Studio City alongside fellow Singaporean Wayne Liew from Keng Eng Kee, the popular street food stall known for its fusion of Hainanese cuisine with Malaysian-style Zi Char home-style food.

Other talented chefs from Singapore cooking up a storm at the festival will be Manjunath Mural from the one-starred Song of India as well as Han Liguang from Labyrinth which has been awarded its first star in this year’s Michelin guide Singapore.

Singapore’s Malcolm Lee from one-starred Candlenut, the world’s first and only Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant, and Japan’s Yoshihiro Tanaka from Kougaryu Honten, who will be preparing his Bib Gourmand-awarded takoyaki in three different flavours, will also be present at the festival.

Bib Gourmands are a recent addition to the Michelin awards system, rewarding both high-quality food and good value for money, often in a less formal setting than those restaurants receiving a star.

Three of Studio City’s signature restaurants, one-Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Pearl Dragon, Michelin-recommended Shanghainese restaurant Shanghai Magic and also Michelin-recommended Bi Ying, that serves northern and southern Chinese flavours, will also be showcasing creative delicacies created especially for the festival.

Patrick Sauze, spokesperson at Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, said: “Asia is recognised as having the world’s best street food and we are thrilled to invite some of our most talented chefs and their teams to cook together in Macau for the very first time.

“Foodies, families and friends can discover their favourite street eats, soak up the buzzing festival atmosphere and savour flavours old and new. The Michelin guide Street Food Festival in Macau will truly be a unique dining experience for all food lovers to mark in their calendars.”

The gourmet festival has free admission and will take place from 12 noon to 8pm daily at Studio City’s Macau Gourmet Walk, which resembles the historic streets of Macau.
