No one can keep up with Bangkok. Not even the locals that are living there to see the developments and not even the well-traveled man in the world. The city has always something more to offer from Michelan-starred food establishments to night bars that are open until wee hours of the morning. With the increasing number of tourists that are coming to visit Bangkok, it is not surprising that many hotels such as Novotel in Bangkok are being launched to meet the current demand.
For many who have travelled to Bangkok before, they can attest to how much the city have changed. Years before, one has to go to a hotel in order to experience fine dining but now there are many options for nice restaurants that are independent – the owners are either foreigners or locals. The latest development in the food scene of Bangkok is the introduction of Michelin starred restaurants.
The city has benefitted a lot from the publishing of its Michelin establishments. The most awaited awarding ceremony called World’s 50 Best Restaurants has been organized in Bangkok for the past few years which increased the interest in the food scene even more. For the past three years, the best restaurant in all of Asia can be found in Bangkok and it is none other than Gaggan. Bangkok may be a third world city but it has come a long way in terms of dining.
One of the most talked about in the Michelin front is Jay Fai which is a street food establishment awarded with a single star. The headlines are buzzing when the report came out about the humble restaurant. Even before the Michelin review, it was already crowded with customers and now the queue is even unbearable with the attention it has caught.
For foodies that are staying in Novotel in Bangkok, look no further than the Old Town and Chinatown when hunting for the best restaurants in the city. These places used to be attractive to tourists because of the Grand Palace and the historical temples but now it has something more to offer in terms of dining.
