Top 5 Unconventional Michelin Guide Restaurants in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a melting pot of different cultures, incorporating various attractions to entertain tourists and locals. With one of the most appealing aesthetics in South Asia blending a combination of modern and traditional, you’ll experience the best food from both worlds in Hong Kong, a city that never sleeps.
If you’re intrigued by the prospect of great food and exceptional views, Hong Kong is a must-visit destination. Hong Kong is scattered with Michelin guide restaurants, but this makes choosing the right eatery a difficult proposition.
So where can you find the best food in Hong Kong? Well, you can’t go wrong if you check in at one of these Michelin guide restaurants from the Michelin Guide in Hong Kong.
For a taste of authentic Moroccan and Middle Eastern cuisine, Le Souk is a great alternative to the plethora of Asian food outlets throughout Hong Kong.
Le Souk boasts some exotic flavours which will leave you wanting more, set in an intimate room with eye-catching jewels, lanterns, trinkets and a colourful aesthetic. The restaurant is owned by two Egyptian brothers who clearly know what they’re doing, and if you’re intrigued to try one of their standout dishes, sample either the lamb tagine or the roasted fig salad and you won’t be disappointed.
Le Souk has been recommended by the Michelin guide for an impressive four consecutive years. Though there are many Le Souk restaurants across the globe, what’s consistent is a melting pot of sounds, flavours, smells, sights and people. Broaden your cultural horizons and experience a taste of ‘the market place’ today.
When it comes to authentic cuisine, nothing beats local produce, especially among tourists who are looking to sample a genuine taste of the location they’re in. If you’re inspired by a farm-to-table approach -- and let’s face it; it doesn’t get much fresher than that -- Beet is right down your street. Its chefs have realised the potential of local produce, in particular, chef Barry Quek, whose vision has elevated the concept of the freshest food possible.
Beet is a staple restaurant in the area for contemporary European cuisine with surprisingly local roots. But that doesn’t mean you won’t encounter some food of the Asian persuasion too, with influences which are rife throughout. From Chinese herbs and marigolds to locally-raised meat, what more could you ask for?
Another modern European restaurant, but one which has a unique aura about it. Hidden from the busy grasps of regular life in Hong Kong, Arcane is a chic abode boasting a refined dining approach. There is an elegant dining room for guests, the perfect backdrop for the delivery of simple yet super effective dishes.
A contemporary aesthetic with oak flooring and art matches the theme of the food, which is incredibly fresh and promotes vegan options too!
Arcane is an en vogue eatery which grows fruits and vegetables on site, alongside 30 different varieties of herb. If it’s fresh yet simple options you desire, get on down to Arcane and you’ll be in for a treat.
