Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong announces that Shang Palace has again been awarded two stars in the 2017 edition of the Michelin Guide for Hong Kong and Macau, making it the Chinese restaurant’s nineth year to receive the coveted star rating.
The rating is based on five criteria – the quality of products, value for money, mastery of flavour and cooking, the “personality” of the cuisine and consistency between visits. The Michelin two-star accolade denotes excellent cooking worthy of a detour.
Renowned for its Cantonese cuisine, Shang Palace delivers traditional and creative dishes that evoke the grandeur of traditional China, artistically prepared by Chef Mok Kit Keung and his team.
“I am so proud of being a part of the dedicated Shang Palace culinary team. To be able to maintain this prestigious recognition, in a way reflecting our consistency in delivering high-standard quality, is an honour and a huge achievement for us. We spare no effort in delighting our guests,” said Chef Mok.
The restaurant’s signature dishes include Crispy Lobster with Oatmeal, Braised Spare Ribs with Chin kiang Vinegar, Oven-Baked Cod Fillet (Sustainable Glacier 51) with Egg White and Conpoy, Stewed Spotted Garoupa with Foie Gras and Black Garlic, Chilled Marinated Abalone with Chinese Wine and Sautéed Giant Crab with Spring Onion, Ginger and White Pepper with Vermicelli.
“We are very proud to be honoured by the Michelin Guide with a two-star rating again,” said Ulf Bremer, general manager of Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong. “It is truly a wonderful acknowledgement for our dedicated team to have its efforts recognised and rewarded. I would especially like to congratulate Chef Mok for his commitment and creativity, and our experienced team of Chinese chefs, many of whom have been working at Shang Palace for 10 to 20 years, for ensuring Shang Palace’s culinary excellence. This laurel signifies that we not only maintain consistently high standards, but also strive to meet the even higher expectations of our local supporters and international travellers.”
With a wealth of international culinary experience, Chef Mok spent almost two decades working at a number of prestigious establishments, international luxury hotels and convention centres in Singapore. Apart from that, he has been invited as a guest chef in various countries, such as Canada, Australia and France. Over the years, he has received numerous recognitions and culinary accolades with his creative dishes.
