Michelin has released their first ever "Fine Cantonese Food Guide" listing hundreds of restaurants around the world. It's the first time in the history of the guide that an edition has focused on a style of cuisine rather than a country or region.
The new edition compiles the best addresses for Cantonese cuisine across 15 countries in Asia, Europe and the US, listing some 291 establishments. 78 are starred restaurants, 62 are Bib Gourmand restaurants and 151 are restaurants awarded a MICHELIN Plate.
Four restaurants included hold the three Michelin star rating including The Eight in the Grand Lisboa Hotel in Macau, Lung King Heen and T'ang Court both in Hong Kong and Le Palais in Taipei.
Asia has the largest number of starred Cantonese restaurants with 69 establishments, while Europe has eight and the United States one.
