Today Michelin released its inaugural guide to recommended restaurants in Shanghai. Find the full list.
Michelin has named one three-star, seven two-star and 18 one-star restaurants in its first edition of the Michelin Guide Shanghai 2017, released today (21st September).
The T’ang Court restaurant of the Langham Hotel situated at Xintiandi was awarded three Michelin stars. The restaurant’s counterpart in Hong Kong was also awarded three stars in November 2015.
‘The experienced chef delivers a mix of classic and modern Catonese dishes,’ the guide says.‘Specialities include braised sea cucumber with dried longan, and sautéed Wagyu with organic mushrooms.’
The Michelin Guide suggests that 270RMB (£27) is the minimum price per person for a dinner at T'ang Court.
Canton 8 in the Huangpu district was among the seven restaurants awarded two stars, and was praised by the Michelin Guide for its dim sum and Cantonese cuisine.
The average spending for diners wishing to have a taste during lunch time starts from 48RMB (£5). ‘Which made it the world’s cheapest Michelin two-star restaurant,’ said Michael Ellis, managing director of Michelin Restaurant and Hotel Guides.
In addition to the Michelin-starred restaurants, the committee has also highlighted 25 establishments as ‘Bib Gourmand’ for ‘exceptional good food at moderate prices’ - namely those with an average price of 200RMB (£20) per person.
*On 26th November, try the world's top wines at Decanter Shanghai Fine Wine Encounter at Ritz Carlton Shanghai (Pudong), which now also has a Michelin 1-Star restaurant, Jin Xuan.
