Finally, Thailand will have its own version of Michelin Guide, the state tourism agency mentioned last April 2017. It took its place on the culinary world map just a few days after the government declared they will shut down the lively street food scene of Bangkok. As a result, there will be more restaurants to celebrate fine dining in Bangkok, which tastes better than munching street foods.
The French Michelin metropolis company introduced the publication in 1900 to promote people to venture into road trips. The system began its operation since the 1920s.
There will be two versions of the publication, one written in English and the other in Thai. It will be about restaurants and hotels foundin Thailand. Other guides released were for Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korean, Japan and China.
This news came right after the military government of Thailand requested world-famous street food vendors to be expelledas a cleaning-up drive for the government. It will desecrate foods and jeopardize the livelihoods of the city’s roadside cooks. It may or may not have positive results as people will now spend for fine dining in Bangkok for best tasting foods.
The publication may feature some of Bangkok’s best street foods. As in 2016, Singapore had made a headline when the publication featured two of its modest food stalls – one serving pork noodles and the other serving chicken rice. These were the most famous destinations featured in Singapore. That’s why more tourists are struggling to try fine dining in this area of Asia.
A statement says one of the world’s culinary capital is Bangkok, as per the president and managing director of Michelin, Lionel Dantiacq.
Aside from being famous for street foods, the capital of Thailand is flocked with fine dining in Bangkok, thus attracting more world-class chefs to venture their cooking in this industry.
The guide will encourage local restaurants to improve their delectable foreign and local cuisines for a gastronomic experience. This was mentioned by the governor of the Tourism Authority, YuthasakSupasorn of Thailand.
