It has been such a groundhog year; you wouldn’t notice if I had copied-and-pasted last year’s article here. Yes, we are still talking about the new normal, new variants and new lockdowns, but on the other hand, also new food trends, new cafes and new restaurants.

The resilience of our fighters in the F&B industry cannot go un-noticed. Despite everything going against them, they are still making sure we have meals when we need them, and awesome places to go to once we can. Therefore, we are happy that Michelin Guide is still around to give them the encouragement they deserve. In fact, this year, Ayutthaya, the land of Roti Saimai and giant river shrimp, has been added to the equation. To our delight, 2 of Aroimakmak.com’s favourite eateries there have been awarded the Bib Gourmand – Here Kae Pork Satay and Roti Sai Mai Abedeen.

There have also been some changes in the fine dining scene – permanent closures of big names, major relocations, established chefs leaving local institutions to venture out on their own with interesting names coming in to replace them, and of course, up-and-coming chefs hoping to make a splash.

So here’s this year’s list, announced through a virtual ceremony via Zoom. Congratulations to all!
