The long-awaited news from the world-renowned Michelin Guide Hong Kong & Macau 2019 is officially out today. Chinese restaurant Tin Lung Heen at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong receives two Michelin stars, and Italian restaurant Tosca, also at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, receives one star.
This is the seventh year in a row for Tin Lung Heen to be awarded with two Michelin stars, one of the five Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong to receive this prestigious honor. Riding on the success of previous years, Tin Lung Heen earned five “forks and spoons” for the ultimate luxury dining experience delivered by Chef Paul Lau and his team. A one-star rating for sixth consecutive years is an incredible feat for Tosca.
Pierre Perusset, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, commented, “I am delighted that Tin Lung Heen garnered a two-star rating, an exceptional achievement that demonstrates our commitment to culinary and service excellence. I am also thrilled that Tosca has been recognized once again with a one-star rating and listed in the prestigious Michelin Guide. This is the result of the combined efforts of all the Ladies and Gentlemen at our hotel and restaurants who are dedicated to crafting distinctive and exceptional dining experiences for our guests. This recognition continues to elevate Tosca and Tin Lung Heen to new heights.”
Chef Paul Lau, the Chef de Cuisine at Tin Lung Heen, said, “My cooking philosophy is simple. The presentation can be innovative, but you always have to respect the traditional cooking methods and techniques. Ultimately, what I want to see are the smiling faces of the diners, and I have to ensure every diner is able to taste and enjoy the food to the fullest.”
Chef Lau is highly regarded as one of the top Cantonese chefs in Hong Kong. He has over 40 years of experience in the culinary industry and has worked in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guangzhou, as well as in Dubai and the UK.
Executive Chef Peter Find, said, “The accolade for both Tosca and Tin Lung Heen is true recognition of our teamwork. We always strive to introduce to the Hong Kong gastronomes authentic cuisines through our passion, craftsmanship and innovation.”
Located on Level 102, Tin Lung Heen presents authentic Cantonese cuisine, the best in town. It is a popular venue for traditional Hong Kong dim sum complemented with a variety of premium tea. On the same floor, Tosca offers innovative Italian cuisine in a dramatic, stylish setting. The open kitchen design and high ceiling complete the one-of-a-kind dining experience.
