Twin Chef Brothers Receive 2nd Michelin Star for Bangkok Eatery

BANGKOK – German chefs Mathias and Thomas Sühring were awarded on Wednesday a second Michelin star for their Bangkok-based Sühring restaurant.

The announcement was made at a press conference in the Thai capital to mark the release of the second edition of the Michelin Guide for Thailand, which will be the first to cover areas outside Bangkok, according to a press release.

Sühring, run by twin brother Mathias and Thomas and which offers contemporary European fare with a modern German twist, is the only new two-star addition, joining eateries Gaggan, Le Normandie and Mezzaluna.

Speaking about the 2019 selection, in which 217 dining and 67 lodging establishments are featured, Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of Michelin Guides, said: “This year’s selection highlights the diversity of culinary experiences, both within and outside of Bangkok. We have also seen the blooming trend of the degustation menu, whereby chefs carefully design a complete experience for diners.”

The first Michelin Guide was created in France in 1900 as an initiative of a tire company with the same name to promote the use of automobiles, and from 1923 onwards it started to rate restaurants.

After expanding throughout Europe, Michelin published its first classification of restaurants in the United States in 2005 and two years later, it stepped into Asia with a guide for Tokyo.

Japan, with 32 restaurants with three stars, leads the rankings in the guide, followed by France, which has 26 three-star restaurants.
