Double Recognition for The Temple House In MICHELIN Guide Chengdu 2023

Mi Xun Teahouse Awarded with One MICHELIN Star and Tivano Received a Special Mention for Second Consecutive Year

Chengdu, October 2022 - The Temple House’s vegetarian Sichuan cuisine restaurant, Mi Xun Teahouse, has once again been awarded with one MICHELIN star in MICHELIN Guide Chengdu 2023, following its  win in the inaugural MICHELIN Guide Chengdu earlier this year. Tivano, the contemporary Italian restaurant, has also received a special mention as a selected restaurant.

"Receiving this recognition two years in a row is a testament to both Chef Tony and Chef Jerome’s tireless pursuit for continuous improvement, as well as the entire culinary and service teams, to finding new and creative ways to present their art for guests to savour.” says Simon McHendry, General Manager of The Temple House.

Mi Xun Teahouse
Nestled in a historical heritage Zhanghuali building, Mi Xun Teahouse is immersed in an ambience of elegance and tranquillity that seems worlds away from the bustling city that sits right outside its doors. The refined vegetarian menu at Mi Xun Teahouse is inspired by the healthful dishes once served at Daci Temple, an inspiration that Chef Tony continues to draw from every day. Mi Xun Teahouse’s balanced offerings are light yet tasty and prepared with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

A Sichuan native, Chef Tony Xu, Executive Sous Chef of The Temple House, is not only familiar with the characteristics of local ingredients, but also values the taste it brings to his guests. "The whole team is delighted to be recognised with one MICHELIN star once again! Every dish we present is the result of much thought and experimentation.” says Chef Tony “To receive this recognition for two years running – the only two years that the MICHELIN Guide has been presented in Chengdu – is a great achievement for the entire team."

Tivano brings the best of Italian cuisine to life in dynamic and delicious ways. The innovative multi-layer design features a vibrant open kitchen with open grill and stone fired pizza oven, together with a floor-to-ceiling wine wall as the centre piece, adding an element of theatre as the talented culinary team creates authentic, regionally inspired Italian dishes. 

“My team and I maintain our passion for food, bringing classic and innovative Italian dishes prepared with authentic techniques to make our guests feel as if they are in Italy, both in terms of the original taste and handpicking ingredients.” says Chef Jerome Merlo, Chef de Cuisine of Tivano.

To celebrate the recognition, a new MICHELIN tasting menu specially created by Chef Tony, as well as new winter dishes presented by Chef Jerome will be available at Mi Xun Teahouse and Tivano respectively.

The Mi Xun Teahouse MICHELIN tasting menu is available daily 12pm to 2pm for lunch and 5:30pm to 8pm for dinner.
