Planning a trip to Macau but keep putting it off? Well, mark your diary for 5–8 October 2017, for the debut of the MICHELIN guide Hong Kong Macau Street Food Festival at Studio City’s Macau Gourmet Walk, where top chefs from some of Asia’s Michelin-starred and -recommended restaurants, along with Bib Gourmand eateries, will showcase their one-off street-food innovations alongside signature celebrated dishes.
We’re salivating just thinking about the chance to savour a plate of luscious chook and rice from Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle in Singapore – the first hawker stall to be awarded a Michelin star – dished up by Chan Hon Meng. Next on our hit list will be the coffee pork ribs by fellow Singaporean Wayne Liew from Keng Eng Kee Seafood, a Michelin-recommended food stall. Not satisfied with all that meaty goodness, we’ll then head to Candlenut, the world‘s first and only Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant in Singapore, for a spot of seafood – crab curry noodles, to be precise – whipped up by Chef Malcolm Lee.

But this fiesta is not all about grub from the Lion City. Other participating restaurants include Macau’s one-Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Pearl Dragon, which will place a spotlight on Chef Ming Lam’s chilled fresh abalone with plum wine and fern root noodles, and Kougaryu Honten, a Bib Gourmand spot in Osaka that specialises in everyone’s fave Japanese street-food snack: takoyaki (octopus balls).
The MICHELIN guide Hong Kong Macau Street Food Festival, organised in association with Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and supported by Melco Resorts & Entertainment, will be open 12–8pm daily from 5–8 October 2017. Admission is free. Dishes can be purchased starting from MOP40 using Street Food Coupons purchased at the event.
