If you've been wandering around the city like a zombie, starving, slamming your head into walls, delirious with starvation, unable to find a mall restaurant that can serve you world-class food, the Michelin Guide 2018 edition was released yesterday
and can help with a few recommendations. Some back-story? The inaugural Shanghai Michelin Guide was released last year
to some snide shrugs from the Shanghai F&B community -- they celebrated a lot of famous restaurants in malls and hotels that have their original locations in Hong Kong and are way, way better there; they didn't have too much to say on Chinese cuisine that isn't exorbitantly expensive and tacky; they shafted Paul Paret's Ultraviolet
culinary celebration of unchecked egoism out of three stars. Onward, 2018! Long story short: First two, still the same; third thing they've amended. Ultraviolet joins T'ang Court
in the Langham as a three-star anointed place to get food. The full list of Michelin honorees is right here
. Can we expect 9,000 tertiary offshoot blogs from Shanghai lifestyle media platforms leeching off this list? "Top 3 Must-Try Michelin Restaurants To Visit Before You Blow Your Head Off?" Let's hope so!
