The Only Hong Kong Restaurant On This Year's World 50 Best List

Digest

April 5, 2017 | BY Charmaine Mok

This year's ceremony featured one local favourite

Just months after the announcement of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants, in which 9 Hong Kong and Macau restaurants were included on the list, we head to Melbourne for the World's 50 Best ceremony. 

Unfortunately, there wasn't such a stellar showing tonight, though Amber featured on the list at a respectable #24. But despite the lack of representation, there are bright spots on the horizon: 

Brae, an extraordinary organic restaurant in Birregurra, entered the list at #44. If you haven't booked yourself in already, chef Dan Hunter will be here this June to cook with Richard Ekkebus at Amber.

Chef Yannick Alleno of Alléno Paris au Pavillon Ledoyen also received the Highest New Entry award at #31—fantastic dining_news considering the French chef is about to open his new restaurant here in Hong Kong next month. Look out for our exclusive interview with Alleno soon.

And, of course, there are always our own lists of top restaurants in Hong Kong and Macau, Singapore, and the Philippines to look through for dining inspiration. 

If you've been following @hktatlerdining, then you'll know that we've been featuring on-the-ground coverage from our wandering gourmand, Johannes Pong. Stay tuned for more updates as we follow the celebrations.
