Michelin Guide Street Food Festival for Macau
Macau’s inaugural Michelin Guide Street Food Festival launches at the Studio City entertainment resort in October.
Being organised by Michelin Guide Hong Kong and Robert Parker Wine Advocate, the four-day event features chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants and Bib Gourmand (a relatively new Michelin award for less formal restaurants) and Michelin-recommended eateries across Asia. Free, the festival runs from October 5 to 8 at Studio City’s Macau Gourmet Walk, which resembles the enclave’s historic streets.
Supported by Melco Resorts and Entertainment, the festival will feature decorated stalls showcasing some of Asia’s best street-food offerings including Singapore’s hawker stalls, Shanghainese dim sum, Japanese little eats and Macau’s Chinese classics.
Signature dishes and special festival creations will be available starting from MOP40 (US$5) and using a coupon system.
Eateries from Japan and Singapore will offer their food in Macau for the first time, including the world’s first-ever street-food stall to have been awarded a Michelin Star, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle from Singapore. Its chef Chan Hon Meng will be cooking alongside fellow Singaporean Wayne Liew from Keng Eng Kee, the street-food stall known for its fusion of Hainanese cuisine with Malaysian-style Zi Char homestyle food.
Other chefs coming from Singapore include Manjunath Mural from the one-star Song of India, Han Liguang from Labyrinth, which has just been awarded one star in the new Michelin Guide Singapore 2017, and Malcolm Lee from one-star Candlenut, the world’s only Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant.
Coming from Japan is Yoshihiro Tanaka from Kougaryu Honten, who will be preparing his Bib Gourmand-awarded takoyaki in three different flavours.
Three of Studio City’s signature restaurants, one-star Cantonese restaurant Pearl Dragon, Michelin-recommended Shanghainese restaurant Shanghai Magic and Michelin-recommended Bi Ying, which serves northern and southern Chinese flavours, will present delicacies made specially for the festival.
