The 2020 edition of the Michelin Guide to Guangzhou, China, has been released with news of one new two-star restaurant and one new one-star restaurant making the list. A thee-star has yet to make the rankings for the Guangdong province capital.
Last year's new entry in the two-star category, Jiang by Chef Fei, is joined by Imperial Treasure Fine Chinese Cuisine. The fine-dining chain restaurant, which has branches in Singapore, London and Paris, specialises in traditional Cantonese cooking, and gets a special mention for its steamed slender shad (or Chinese herring) served with diced ginger and its crispy fried chicken stuffed with sticky rice.
Making a new entry in the one-star rankings, taking the total up to ten, is Lingnan House, where diners can watch chefs prepare dishes like minced fish soup with kaffir lime leaves in its open kitchen.
The guide now lists a total of 89 restaurants, including two two-star restaurants, ten one-star restaurants,31 Bib Gourmand restaurants and 46 Michelin Plate restaurants.
Speaking of the third edition of the guide, Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides said: "Despite the exceptional year we have been through, our inspectors continued to scout the city, being both touched and impressed by the resilience of so many chefs and their entrepreneurship in overcoming the crisis and helping to shape a safe and lasting recovery."
