Foodies, start your engines.  HK’s star restaurants have just been announced by the 2013 Michelin Guide, and from local noodle shops to homegrown innovators to dazzling hotel hotspots, the city’s food scene is on a roll. THE STEAK HOUSE at the InterContinental received its first Michelin star this year, making the property the only one in Hong Kong to have three Michelin restaurants under one roof (SPOON by Alain Ducasse has two, and Yan To Heen also has one). The Four Season’s Caprice and Lung King Heen have both retained their enviable three stars, as has L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, while 8½ Otto e Mezzo – Bombana remains the only Italian restaurant outside of Italy to have earned the coveted triple star status. Two restaurants in ICC, Tin Lung Heen at the Ritz-Carlton, and Japanese Ryu Gin have earned an incredible two stars this year.  While Hong Kong innovators at Tate Dining Room, L’Altro, The Press Room Group’s The Principal, and Harlan Goldstein’s Gold and Strip House have all been awarded their first-ever stars. For the full list of star restaurants including 61 restaurants in Hong Kong and 7 in Macau, plus 76 more who have been awarded “Bib Gourmand” status, Michelin 2013 guides are available at bookstores starting this week.  But first, here’s a sneak preview of who came out shining…
