Michelin has released a new restaurant guide to the best restaurants around the world for Cantonese food, the first time in its 118-year history, that the gastronomy bible has created a selection that covers a specific kitchen instead of a geographic area.
Michelin Guide Fine Cantonese Food has 291 establishments in 15 countries around the world, including 78 restaurants that already hold Michelin stars 62 Bib Gourmand restaurants (which denote good food to good value); and 151 restaurants were awarded a Michelin plate ("prepared" dishes).
The guide also has four of Michelin's top rated Cantonese restaurants (three stars): Eight in Grand Lisboa Hotel in Macau, Lung King Heen and the Hong Kong Court and Le Palais in Taipei.
In total, Asia has the largest number of excellent Cantonese restaurants (69 facilities), followed by Europe (8) and the United States (1).
The guide was launched in cooperation with Chinese automaker GAC Motor.
