Gwendal Poullennec, the International Director of Michelin Guides, said: "Hong Kong and Macau are very special cities within the gastronomic world.
"They attract many tourists and business people from around the world, and as a result these cities have been blessed with gastronomic influences that oscillate between traditional Cantonese and Macau cuisine, combined with international flavours.
"The 2019 selection highlights this diversity particularly well, and the many star additions testify to the dynamism and talent that permeate the Hong Kong and Macau dining scene."
