Tin Lung Heen - Where Chefs Eat in Hong Kong when they want to look down on the world from the 102nd storey
But don’t get too distracted by the view - the Cantonese food is just as stunning says Where Chefs Eat
In what must be a very crowded field, Tin Lung Heen is one of the world’s tallest Chinese restaurants, and the jaw-dropping view of the Hong Kong skyline from its 102-storey perch at Ritz Carlton Hong Kong is, according to our new book Where Chefs Eat, "to die for".
But don’t get too distracted by the view - the Michelin-approved Cantonese food is just as stunning. According to Where Chefs Eat "the menu is headlined by fresh seafood and dim sum; the steamed crab claw with egg white and Hua Diao wine is noteworthy, as is the barbecue Iberico pork with honey." And when you're done with the view Where Chefs Eat reports that "the chandeliered main dining room is bound to impress".
It's just one of 4500 recommendations where to eat around the world from 650 chefs who make it their business to know this sort of stuff. The idea behind Where Chefs Eat is exactly the same as it was when we published the very first edition back in 2012 - except that this time there are a third more recommendations than ever before.
The premise is that the modern chef is a fantastic source of guaranteed good meal recommendations, from humble holes-in-the-wall - to the most luxurious places around - and every dining experience inbetween the two.
So whether you desire just a late-night snack from a burger van, a 400-year-old clam in an art filled restaurant or a fabulously fashionable start to the day, you’ll find it in Where Chefs Eat. 570 destinations. 70 countries. Across six continents. It's no idle boast to say that this edition has the most wide-ranging and eclectic set of listings we’ve ever researched and published.
We’re only focusing on one restaurant per city in our Phaidon.com series but the book contains countless recommendations in each city around the world. We’ve also launched an app for this third edition which features all the places in the book in an on the go format for when you’re out and about. Head into the store and snap up your guide to great eating now. And if you pre-order here you'll get the app free - but for a limited time only.
