Duddell’s, 2 Michelin-starred Dim Sum

Hong Kong’s 2-Michelin-star Duddell’s, located at the Shanghai Tang building in Central, offers a decadent experience of dim sum and champagne. Never thought they go together but it certainly works. Decor is eclectic – quiet elegance complemented by classic artworks; not your traditional Chinese restaurant. We stayed mostly with the dim sum, which is nothing fancy, just fresh ingredients well put together that, combined with the superb service, makes Duddell’s deserving of the 2 stars. … More Duddell’s, 2 Michelin-starred Dim Sum

Helmed by Japanese Chef Masashi Horiuchi, with decades-long experience in Michelin restaurants across Europe under his belt , it serves up an excellent repertoire of rotisserie and charcuterie offerings that feature very delicate balance of taste, robust yet not overwhelming. The meat are the stars: the grain-fed black Angus Roasted Ribeye Steak and the Rotisserie Rack of Lamb of Australian four-rib lamb rack are must-orders. … More A Lovely Shelter In The Woods
