Shanghai Michelin Guide 2017

21st September 2016 / Shanghai

6 December 2016: Updated with full Michelin Selection list.

The Michelin Guide just launched today in Shanghai, featuring 122 restaurants, of which, 25 received bib gourmand and 26 received star(s).

The list comes across as a little bit controversial, considering many great western and japanese restaurants were excluded, with many restaurants that few people have heard of.

To be honest, the bias towards Chinese restaurants is a given, since it was the first ever  Michelin guide featuring a city in Mainland China.

I did feel that perhaps the quota might have benefited a better balance of restaurants between cuisines and nationalities.

Without further ado, here are the winning restaurants for the 2017 Shanghai Michelin Guide in all their glory.
