2012 Michelin Guide to HK & Maceau

PhilD | Dec 1, 201103:03 AM

The new guide is out with a few changes at the top. I recognize it is a much derided publication but that said it is quite useful as a guide especially at the "bib" level and has some pointers to god food.

Headlines are:

Two new 3 stars plus a 3 to 2 move: Otto e Mezzo and Joel Robuchon (HK) go up, and Sun Tun Lok drops to 2.

New 2 stars are: Bo Innovation, Lei Garden (Ming kok)', Shang Palace, Spoon, and Ye Shanghai (Kowloon). Cuisine Cuisine, T'ang Court and Tim's Kitchen drop to one.

At the one star level, Ah Yat Harbour View, Cuisine cuisine (IFC), Lei Garden (CB), Mirror, Tin Lung Heen, Yue are new to the guide, whilst Lei gardens (elements), Man Wah, St George, The Chairman, Xin Dau Jim (Jordan) all make it to one star from non-rated but listed in last years guide.

Demotions from one star: Cafe Gray, DTF (CB), Farm House, Kung Lum, Golden Leaf, Kins Kitchen, Lei Bisto, Regal Palace, Yung Kee (Central).

And there are approx 27 new bibs Bibs but as the guide doesn't list any demotions this year I can't tell which ones have dropped off - and I can't be bothered to cross check however the numbers are up to 56 from approx 46 last year.
