The MICHELIN Guide handed out 3 Special Awards to highlight individuals who have demonstrated outstanding performance. Chef Kelvin CHOW from The Attic received this year’s MICHELIN Young Chef Award, Han YANG from Chao Yue was recognized as the Service Award winner, and the MICHELIN Sommelier Award was handed out to Jordan LI from Two MICHELIN Stars restaurant Taian Table.
According to Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guide, the inspectors were not just impressed by the restaurants located in the city center but they also unearthed many interesting small shops by extending their research to other districts and old neighborhoods, of which some have been known for years.
"Finally, our team has enthusiastically noted a younger generation has been joining this industry, seeing opportunities in the market, and being committed to playing a role in extending the horizon of gastronomy."
