French chef Joël Robuchon has added another four Michelin stars to his collection of restaurants, after the release of Michelin's inaugural guide to Hong Kong and Macau.
Robuchon, who now holds 24 Michelin stars, more than any other chef in the world, gained Michelin's top accolade of three stars for his restaurant Robuchon a Galera at the Hotel Lisboa in Macau, as well as one star for his L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Hong Kong.
The inaugural Michelin guide to Hong Kong and Macau, which marks the second guide to Asia after Tokyo, lists 251 establishments including 202 restaurants.
It awarded a total of 40 stars and includes two three-starred; eight two-starred; and 18 starred restaurants.
It also lists 26 Bob Gourmand restaurants, which offer a three-course meal for HDK300 (£26) or less.
Chinese restaurant Lung King Heen at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong also gained the highest award of three-stars.
The restaurant, which means "view of the dragon", serves a traditional Cantonese menu overseen by executive chef Chan Yan Tak.
The Michelin guide to Hong Kong and Macau will be published in English and Chinese and is released on Friday (5 December) in China and will be on sale from 12 January in Europe.
Michelin now publishes 26 guides covering 23 countries in Europe, the USA and Asia.
Last month, Tokyo retained its crown as the world's most Michelin-starred city, with more starred establishments than Paris, London and New York combined.
