On December 6, Bangkok’s culinary landscape became more exciting than ever, with the launch of its inaugural Michelin Guide.

The city, which is renowned for its vibrant street food, will join its Asian counterparts such as Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore to be rated by the established food guide series.

Of the 17 restaurants bestowed with the coveted stars, three attained two Michelin stars each—Gaggan, which is known for its progressive Indian cuisine and creative dining experience; Le Normandie, acclaimed for its refined French cuisine; and Mezzaluna, which focuses on European cuisine with a Japanese flair.

In a move that recognizes the important role that street food plays, the modest food stall Jay Fai also earned the distinction of having one Michelin star. It is loved by locals and visitors alike for its tasty crab curries, omelets, and congee, which are prepared over homemade charcoal stoves.
