A study found that 70% of people choose their vacation spot based on the food they eat there. Among the countries renowned for their culinary culture, we will cite France, Italy and Japan. These three countries also have the most Michelin stars, with nearly 660 awarded establishments for France. However, these are not the nations where affording this luxury is the most accessible. Conversely, a ranking has just revealed the list of the most affordable countries to treat yourself to a star experience. Good news, Belgium appears in ninth position.

A Southeast Asian country in the lead

Malaysia takes first place in the ranking. The country offers some of the best value Michelin star restaurants in the world. It is also the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, which has the largest number of Michelin establishments, closely followed by George Town. The ranking notably cites the Beta KL establishment, located in Kuala Lumpur, which allows you to taste the rich Malaysian culinary heritage.

In second place is Singapore, which is also among the five countries with the highest number of starred restaurants per 100,000 inhabitants. Here, there are restaurants for all budgets, from ultra-expensive restaurants to small, more accessible places. Hong Kong is third in the list of the most affordable countries for Michelin-starred restaurants. In total, there are nearly 88 different, affordable and high-quality starred establishments. However, over the past year, around 19 new establishments have obtained a Michelin star in Hong Kong. As a result, the average cost of a meal in the country has increased slightly (3%), meaning more high-end restaurants are likely to appear on Hong Kong’s dining scene in the coming months and years.

Conversely, Finland, Canada and Hungary appear to be the three countries where paying for a Michelin star is the most expensive. In the list, we also find Austria, the United States, Croatia, Sweden, Portugal, Ireland and finally Germany.
