Celebrity Cuisine, Hong Kong

Celebrity Cuisine is a One Michelin star Cantonese Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong. It has ping ponged between one and two stars for years. Michelin 1 Starred Restaurant (2010, 2017-20), Michelin 2 Starred Restaurant (2011-2016) We were looking an easy same day online lunch reservation after a disappointing meal at Maxim’s Palace. This spot fit the bill, Perfectly. It is located in Central, across the street from the old school Lin Heung tea house.

Be sure to ask them for the Dim Sum menu at lunch. It is not very extensive and features only classic dishes. No purple colored pandas rice rolls here. The normal menu is very expensive.

The place had 6 tables with only 3 occupied, so we received a lot of attention. Fast plate changes, cleanups, refills. Celebrity is a private kitchen!

Food was top notch and not super expensive, making us wonder why more people don’t eat here. As a point of comparison marginal Maxim’s Palace was full. The cost of dishes was HK$50 vs HK$66, not a big premium.

Food Picks:

Celebrity Cuisine Hong Kong shrimp dumplings xo rice noodle rolls

Fried Turnip cake (HK$66 = USD$8.50) hit the mark. Good flavor and cooked just right.

Steam prawn and bamboo shoot dumplings ($66) are a benchmark test. 3 smaller ones with nice robust shrimp flavor.

Celebrity Cuisine Hong Kong deep fried pork dumplings

Deep fried pork dumplings ($66 for 3) are freshly fried and some of the best we have had. You can search this site and see we have eaten a ton.

Fried rice rolls with XO sauce ($66) were also done well. Slightly zesty and nicely cooked.

Celebrity Cuisine Hong Kong fried squab

Fried squab ($88 for one) is one of our favorite dishes. We ordered it off the dinner menu. Perfect version, cooked just right. Crisp.
