Among the new awardees were, eight restaurants serving Cantonese Cuisine. One of them is Ju Xing Home, helmed by 39-year-old chef Wu Jiang Qiao, known for cooking up a variety of Cantonese-style side dishes. The place has become a go-to spot for many acclaimed chefs in Hong Kong.

Trusty Congee King is another new entrant this year. Located in Wanchai, the eatery is renowned for its creamy congee cooked in fish broth. In addition to Cantonese cuisine, other Asian cuisines were awarded as well, with new entrants including Taiwanese Restaurant Qing Zhuo (directly translated to ‘Please Sit’ in English), Adam Cliff’s Samsen, known for its specialty Thai-style boat noodles.

“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 fried, congee and noodle, dim sum in attractive prices.”
