Despite the hard times that faced the F&B community in Guangzhou at the onset of the coronavirus outbreak, some of the city’s greatest dining destinations showed their resilience and were rewarded at the 2020 Michelin Guide Guangzhou press conference on Tuesday. 

This is the third year that a Michelin Guide has been released for the great city of Guangzhou, a culinary capital that features Cantonese food as well as delectable cuisines 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 (including two new) categories this year: Three Star, Two Star, One Star, Bib Gourmand, Michelin Plate, Young Chef and Service Award.

The big news this year is a new addition to the ‘Two Stars’ club, Imperial Treasure, making the leap from One Star last year. This year also marks the second consecutive year that Jiang by Chef Fei received Two Stars in the Michelin guide. 

Following the press conference, held at Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou, Chef Fei shared with That’s how much the award means to him and his staff:

“I feel very honored and happy to get two Michelin stars for the second time because it is very difficult and is re-evaluated every year. I hope we can continue to make efforts to receive a Michelin star. This year, due to the epidemic, everyone has had a difficult time, so I must continue to maintain a high standard for my team.”

Below, we’ve gathered the list of winners from Michelin’s 2020 guide to Guangzhou, including many household names you’ll remember from the previous year, as well as some new (to the list, anyway) places to try in the months ahead.
