Tokyo Tops List for City with Most Michelin Star Restaurants

TOKYO – Tokyo retained its position as the city with the most Michelin starred restaurants in the world with 314 of its restaurants making it to the 2018 edition of the celebrated Red Guidebook, the publishers said Tuesday.

Four three-starred Tokyo restaurants have maintained their position for 11 years, including Kanda, that serves Japanese Kaiseki cuisine, Sushi restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro and French eateries Joel Robuchon and Quintessence.

“My attitude toward cooking has been the same for 11 years; it is always a challenge to offer the best dishes to the clients. It is something constant, but I don’t forget the essential things,” Shuzo Kishida, chef of Quintessence, told EFE.

Ramen restaurants Nakiryu and Tsuta, where a meal does not cost more than 1,000 yen ($9), have also kept their single star this year, although ramen – a noodle soup – is considered fast food in Japan.

The renowned French guide book, considered the bible of gastronomy, awarded three stars to 12 restaurants, the highest rating in the French guidebook.

The Japanese capital, which also boasts of 56 two-star and 155 one-star restaurants, and nine more stars as compared to last year, has now beat Paris for the seventh consecutive year.

Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin guide, said that the local food, as well as the international cuisine, served in Tokyo was of great quality.

The 2018 edition of the guidebook, which will be available in bookshops and online from Dec. 1, includes 23 new restaurants and for the fourth consecutive year, included a section dedicated to 278 Japanese restaurants that are good value for money.

Tokyo has got its own edition of the guide for 11 years now, which claims to select the best from among its 160,000 restaurants.
