Cuisine Cuisine At The Mira Celebrates
The Mira Hong Kong is celebrating a landmark Michelin-starred victory for its restaurants Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira and WHISK in the latest Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2011. Netting a coveted two Michelin stars, Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira's distinctive modern Cantonese fare drew the attention of the Guide's team of inspectors. A full page in the 2011 Guide was also devoted to modern French eatery WHISK, which garnered critical acclaim under Chef de Cuisine William Girard.
Applauding the city's best dining experiences in this, the hotly anticipated third Hong Kong Macau edition of the Michelin Guide, Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira was one of only nine restaurants in Hong Kong and Macau to be recognised with two coveted Michelin stars that equate to "excellent cooking, worth a detour." Five criteria adhered to when awarding Michelin stars are product quality, preparation and flavours, the cuisine's personality, value for money, and consistency over time and across the menu.
A restaurant that receives one or more stars is, according to the Michelin Guide, "not only one of the best in its country but also one of the best in the world."
"To have won not just one, but two Michelin stars in our first year of operation at Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira is testament to the standards that we have set for The Mira Hong Kong's restaurants. Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira's reputation was built on the legacy of our sister restaurant at ifc," said Martin Chung, General Manager of The Mira Hong Kong. "We commend the efforts of Chef Ken Yu who spearheads the kitchen at Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira, as he continues to rework the classics of the Cantonese culinary lexicon with a surprising new twist."
The Michelin Guide's inspectors also singled out WHISK as one of the 2011 Guide's newly selected restaurants. The Mira Hong Kong's contemporary French restaurant was chosen as a prime example of gastronomic excellence among the city's plethora of dining establishments.
