The MICHELIN Guide Abu Dhabi event showcased 42 restaurants in the capital of the United Arab Emirates. 3 restaurants received one MICHELIN Star for the high quality of their cooking, and 4 establishments received a Bib Gourmand for their delicious food and reasonable prices.

At the MICHELIN Guide Abu Dhabi, one MICHELIN Star was awarded to chef Antonio Guida’s Talea restaurant. This restaurant is known for its “Cucina di Famiglia”, or home-style Italian cuisine; Hakkasan, a restaurant that celebrates traditional Cantonese flavors; and the contemporary Japanese restaurant 99 Sushi Bar.

Accordingly, 99 Sushi Bar received a MICHELIN star thanks to the food presented beautifully, delicately and meticulously. The main goal of this classy Japanese restaurant is to emphasize the quality of the ingredients. The Spanish owners of 99 Sushi Bar import most of their seafood from their homeland, especially the red shrimp.

Hakkasan restaurant stands out thanks to its luxurious and eye-catching oriental decoration. Located within the Emirates Palace hotel, this Cantonese-led restaurant brings home another MICHELIN Star for the brand by offering its customers time-honored classics like Peking duck, Chilean sea bass with honey bee, as well as dim sum prepared with skillful technique.

In addition, 4 other restaurants were also awarded a Bib Gourmand.

Specifically, Almayass restaurant received approval from the voting board thanks to the influence of Lebanon and Armenia. The original branch was established in Beirut in 1996. The larger Abu Dhabi branch continues to offer an appetizing, abundant menu of carefully prepared and flavorful dishes.
