Reopened in September 2012 after a major renovation, Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong’s Shang Palace restaurant is again awarded a two star rating in the 2013 edition of the Michelin Guide for Hong Kong and Macau, which came out today. The rating is based on five criteria – the quality of the 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 to every guest traditional and innovative dishes artistically prepared by Chef Mok Kit Keung and his team. In the Michelin Guide editions of 2009, 2010 and 2012, the restaurant was also awarded two Michelin stars.
“I am so proud of being a part of the Shang Palace culinary team, and it is an honour and a huge achievement for us to help the restaurant to maintain this prestigious recognition,” said Chef Mok. The chef’s signature dishes include Crispy Lobster with Oatmeal; Braised Spare Rib with Chin Kiang Vinegar; Stewed Spotted Garoupa with Foie Gras and Black Garlic; Oven Baked Cod Fillet with Egg White and Conpoy; and Black Garlic Mousse.
Timothy Wright, general manager of Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong, said, “We are very proud to be honoured by the Michelin Guide with a two-star rating. 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 not only do we maintain consistently high standards but also strive to meet the even higher expectations from our local supporters and international travellers.”
