MICHELIN Guide Seoul 2021 gave stars of Seoul restaurants.
The MICHELIN Guide Seoul 2021, which includes a total of 178 restaurants, includes two 9-star, seven 2-star, twenty-three 1-star, 60 Bib Gourmand and 86 MICHELIN Plate businesses. One restaurant got its first star, while three restaurants rose to one star from Plate. At the same time, the two restaurants were awarded with the Michelin Green Star, which was introduced for the first time this year and aims to reward role model businesses that are at the forefront of sustainable gastronomy.
“Today we’re celebrating the MICHELIN Guide Seoul’s fifth anniversary. We’re also celebrating the courage and resilience of chefs that have given their best every day, even during this tough crisis. Their commitment has impressed us on every level. Our inspectors were thrilled to see the talent and generosity of chefs and entire teams on display again once restaurants were able to reopen.” says Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides.
“We are excited to announce that our selection has been enhanced by newly discovered restaurants. Despite this unprecedented global crisis, riddled with economic pressure, temporary layoffs and shutdowns, many restaurants continued to play their part in keeping Seoul’s culinary scene alive and offering amazing experiences to foodies.”
