Michelin Star Restaurants in Asia
A total of six Bangkok restaurants have been awarded two-star status in the fourth edition of The Michelin Guide in Thailand. And another 22 restaurants in Bangkok received one star. Surprisingly to Bangkok foodies, who consider their city to be a gourmet’s paradise, not one of Bangkok’s restaurants received three stars.
Compare that to Hong Kong, which has seven restaurants with three Michelin stars.
As for Tokyo, the Japanese capital has an astonishing 12 three-star eateries. And Kyoto has four, Osaka has one, and Suita has one.
Tiny Macau has three restaurants with three Michelin stars. Not surprisingly, all three of them are in hotels with casinos. In fact, two of them are in the same hotel, the Grand Lisboa!
Are they targeted at high rollers?
Meanwhile, Singapore has two restaurants with three Michelin stars. And Taipei has one three-starred Michelin eatery.
In fact, there are 299 dining establishments in the current guide. In addition to the six two-star and 22 one-star restaurants are 106 Bib Gourmand and 165 Michelin Plate eateries.
But not all of them are situated in Bangkok. In addition, the guide recommends restaurants in Chiang Mai, Phuket, and Phang Nga.
And the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) hopes to expand coverage to other Thai cities in the 2021 edition of the Thailand Michelin Guide.
