A Korean restaurant in Hong Kong has been added to the latest edition of the Michelin Guide, the world's oldest and best-known hotel and restaurant guide.

Sorabol, a restaurant widely known in Hong Kong for providing authentic Korean cuisine, was recommended by the annual guidebook's lead-up to 2011 for the city of Hong Kong.

"A Korean restaurant, often busy with larger groups who come to share dishes and do their own barbecuing on the grills on each table," the guidebook said about the restaurant.

"Beef is obviously one of the most popular choices but it is worth considering the specials and the hotpots, including the threateningly named Genghis Khan."

It also applauded the staff working there for being "professional," saying they are "on hand to keep moving things along."

The Michelin Guide has been published by France-based tire manufacturer Michelin Corp. since the early 1900s. It is considered by many in the restaurant industry to be the ultimate authority on places to eat. The company publishes annual guidebooks listing restaurants assessed and reviewed by their inspectors in 23 countries. (Yonhap News)
