The Peninsula Hong Kong has once again been recognised as one of the city’s finest dining destinations through the hotel’s renowned Cantonese restaurant, Spring Moon, being awarded one star for the third consecutive year in the newly announced ‘MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2019’. The acclaimed restaurant received a double seal of approval from the renowned gastronomic entity as it is also featured as a top recommendation in the inaugural edition of ‘The MICHELIN Guide Fine Cantonese Food’, which recognises the best Cantonese eateries around the world and was published for the first time in 2018.
The retention of Spring Moon’s coveted Michelin star is the latest feather in the cap for Chinese Cuisine Executive Chef Gordon Leung, who has been at the helm of the restaurant for the past two -and-a-half years. With close to 30 years of culinary experience in Hong Kong, Chef Leung is no stranger to awards, having previously earned a Michelin star during his 21-year tenure in another of Hong Kong’s renowned fine Chinese restaurants.
Drawing on an encyclopaedic knowledge of Chinese cooking techniques and a lifelong passion for food, Chef Leung places great emphasis on the authenticity, freshness and flavours of each ingredient, which he then uses to create exquisitely presented dishes that offer the perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
Mr Joseph Chong, Area Vice President and Managing Director, The Peninsula Hong Kong and The Peninsula Shanghai, said: “We are proud and delighted to receive this honour from the MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong and Macau for the third year running. Consistency is key to any great restaurant, and this recognition for Spring Moon is a fitting testament to the incredible work ethic, boundless creativity and relentless pursuit of excellence displayed by Chef Leung and his talented kitchen team.”
Spring Moon has been hailed as one of Hong Kong’s most unique restaurants since it first opened its doors in 1986. Designed to recreate Roaring Twenties Shanghai, it encapsulates all the glamour and excitement of the Jazz Age through period details, including Frank Lloyd-Wright-influenced Art Deco stained glass and an antique-style teak floor lined with Oriental rugs, creating the perfect setting in which to enjoy classic Cantonese dishes and world-famous dim sum.or reservations, please contact Spring Moon’s on (+852) 2696 6760, or email email@example.com.
