Travel Bulletin - - FOOD & WINE TRAVEL -

MA­CAO has in­creased its stand­ing as one of the world’s top din­ing des­ti­na­tions, with 19 restau­rants earn­ing Miche­lin Stars in the hot-off-the-press 2017 edi­tion of the Miche­lin Guide to Hong Kong and Ma­cau. The Grand Lis­boa’s two pre­mier restau­rants Robuschon au Dome and The Eight re­tained their three-star sta­tus while Feng Wei Ju and Mizumi rose from one to two-star stand­ings. Feng Wei Ju spe­cialises in Chuan-xi­ang fare, a spice-laden cui­sine from Sichuan and Hu­nan, while Mizumi is headed up by three revered Ja­panese chefs who have their pro­duce flown in fresh each day from Ja­pan. The re­gion’s one-star rat­ing list grew to 12 with Can­tonese restau­rants Lai Heen, Ying and Pearl Dragon each earn­ing a star for the first time. They joined restau­rants King, 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo, Shinji, Ter­razza, The Golden Pea­cock, The Kitchen, Tim’s Kitchen, Zi Yat Heen and Can­tonese fine din­ing eatery Wing Lei, lo­cated in­side the Wynn Ma­cau. Ma­cao’s qual­ity and af­ford­able street food was also recog­nised in the guide with 12 eater­ies scor­ing Bib Gour­mand Miche­lin rat­ings. Those awarded in­clude Lord Stow’s Bak­ery, which is renowned for its Por­tuguese-tarts, Fong Kei Paste­laria and Mok Yee Kei where durian ice cream is said to have orig­i­nated. Gen­eral man­ager of the Ma­cao Gov­ern­ment Tourism Of­fice Aus­tralia and New Zealand, He­len Wong, told trav­el­bul­letin that with the im­mi­nent open­ing of new in­ter­na­tional ho­tels such as The Wynn Palace and Stu­dio City there would soon be even more Ma­cao restau­rants aim­ing for stars.
