Despite the COVID-19 pandemic approaching its third year in China, Guangzhou’s food and beverage industry is continuing to push forward.
On Tuesday, August 23, 2022, Michelin Guide Guangzhou was released to the public, highlighting some of the city’s greatest dining destinations from top dollar to best value.
This is the fifth year that a Michelin Guide has been released in the city of Guangzhou, a culinary capital that features Cantonese food as well as cuisines from around the world.
With prestige and influence that can propel a restaurant to the top of the ranks, the Michelin Guide identifies the very best in regional dining, breaking down their picks into seven categories: Three Star, Two Star, One Star, Bib Gourmand, Michelin Plate, Young Chef and Service Award.
The big news this year is two new additions to the ‘One Star’ club, Stiller and Xin Ji. Stiller, located in Guangzhou’s Garden Hotel was created by Chef Stefan Stiller in 2008 in Shanghai. They also took home the Young Chef Award, which was presented to Tommy Zhang.
Below, we’ve gathered the list of winners from Michelin’s 2022 guide to Guangzhou, including many household names you’ll remember from previous years, as well as some new (to the list, anyway) places to try in the months ahead.
“Excellent cuisine, worth a detour.”
“High quality cooking, worth a stop.”
