Win a Michelin Guide!
Fine dining restaurants in Hong Kong can cost an arm and a leg, but the city also has a wealth of restaurants serving excellent food at reasonable prices as reflected in the newest Michelin guide Hong Kong and Macau.
Hong Kong is famous for its fabulous restaurants, and dining at one of them can easily cost you an arm and a leg.
A set dinner at Sushi Shikon at the Mercer Hotel in Sheung Wan on Hong Kong Island, for example, will set you back a breathtaking HK$3,500, or US$451.
But the city also has a plethora of restaurants serving excellent food at affordable prices, as the 2015 edition of the Michelin Guide Hong Kong and Macau demonstrates.
Fully 65 restaurants in Hong Kong and 13 restaurants in Macau are ranked ‘Bib Gourmand’, which means they serve good food at moderates prices. And some of the restaurants with Michelin stars are relatively easy on the wallet, as well.
“Hong Kong and Macau have the most affordable Michelin starred restaurants in the world,” says Michael Ellis, International Director of Michelin Guides.
Michelin Star Lunch for Under HK$100
According to our count, there are several one Michelin star restaurants in Hong Kong where you can have lunch for less than HK$100, or US$12.90. You can also have dinner for less than HK$100 at a few of of them.
All of these budget eateries serve Cantonese food, with most of them focusing on either roast meats or dim sum. So don’t expect to find anything like abalone, bird’s nest soup, or foie gras at eateries in that price range.
Hong Kong boasts 5 three Michelin starred restaurants, 14 two star restaurants, and 45 one star restaurants.
Macau has 2 three star restaurants, 2 two star restaurants, and 7 three star restaurants.
A total of 50 types of cuisine are represented in Hong Kong, 19 in Macau,
