Guide MICHELIN 2019 - Bangkok, Phuket & Phang-Nga - 27 restaurants awarded stars
Michelin today releases the MICHELIN Guide Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-Nga 2019, the second edition of the MICHELIN Guide in Thailand, and the first to cover new territories outside Bangkok: Phuket, Phang-Nga, and Bangkok’s surrounding provinces (Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Nakhon Pathom, Samut Sakhon, and Samut Prakan). In this latest edition, 217 dining and 67 lodging establishments are featured – with a total of four two star restaurants, of which one is a new addition; and 23 one star establishments, of which 10 are new additions.
This year’s selection highlights the diversity of culinary experiences, both within and outside of Bangkok. We have also seen a blooming trend of the degustation menu, whereby chefs carefully design a complete gastronomic experience for diners.
In the 2019 edition, all of the two star restaurants from the previous selection – Gaggan, Le Normandie, and Mezzaluna – retain their awards. The only addition, moving from one star to two, is Sühring, where chef brothers, Mathias and Thomas Sühring, offer unique and contemporary European dishes using their very own style of modern German cooking.
The complete selection of the MICHELIN Guide Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-Nga 2019 will be available in a bilingual digital edition (Thai and English) on the website www.guide.michelin.com from 14 November onwards; and a print version, available at leading bookstores for 650 Baht from 16 November 2018.
The 2019 selection at a glance:
- 4 two star restaurants (1 new)
- 23 one star restaurants (10 new)
- 72 Bib Gourmand restaurants (42 new)
