[Tokyo] The Michelin Guide has announced results for Tokyo, and Japan’s capital city retains the honours of having the most Michelin restaurants in the world – 230 establishments in total.

Some other interesting aspects of the results:

French restaurant L’Osier established in Ginza, Tokyo in 1973 gets a 3-star rating once again.

Famous sushi restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro retains its 3-stars for the 12th year running.

There are three new 2-starred Michelin restaurants, Nabeno-Ism, Harutaka, and Kobikicho Tomoki.

Ramen lovers will be please to find three stared ramen-eateries – Tsuta 蔦, Nakiryu (I tried its cup noodles – how enterprising), and Sobahouse Kiniro Hototogisu. (Sobahouse Kiniro Hototogisu has a branch in Singapore called Konjiki Hototogisu Singapore, located at CHIJMES.)

Onigiri lands a spot on the Bib Gourmand with Onigiri Asakusa Yadoroku being listed.

  1. Probably should remove that link for online reservation for sushi saito. It’s well-known to be regulars only.

    Harutaka is not exactly a new michelin 2-star. They lost their original stars after shifting to their current location and has now regained it.
