The Michelin Guide has announced the Thailand edition for 2022. While 6 restaurants received their first Michelin stars this year, 33 restaurants entered the Bib Gourmand list. 6 two-starred restaurants retained their status. Here is the Michelin Guide’s Thailand selection in 2022!
Gwendal Poullennec, the International Director of the Michelin Guide said, “Due to lockdowns and dine-in restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic in many countries, the restaurant business has been on its all-time lows. Nevertheless, Thailand sees the opening of new restaurants with interesting cuisine types – such as street-food-inspired stalls and authentic Thai food from ancient recipes. Local produce and ingredients have been incorporated in the menu, as diners are increasingly concerned about living healthy lifestyles and food sources. This not only ensures optimum freshness that elevates the cuisine but also encourages sustainability in the agriculture and restaurant industries that help boost up the local economy.”
