More Michelin stars for Hong Kong eateries


HONGKONG (REUTERS) - Noodle, rice porridge and gourmet French restaurants are among those given coveted Michelin stars in the fifth edition of the guide for Hong Kong and the neighbouring gambling hub of Macau.

The 2013 Michelin Guide for Hong Kong and Macau, which goes on sale on Wednesday, has expanded its coverage to include 65 new restaurants in the two cities as well as broadening its neighbourhood coverage.

The four Hong Kong restaurants that received the coveted three-star rating last year all maintained their lustre, as did the sole Macau winner, French contemporary restaurant Robuchon au Dome.

"Quality is the only thing that counts, and this new selection proves how the richness and diversity of your gastronomy is surprising year after year," said Mr Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin guides, in a statement.
