HANOI, Vietnam, June 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Michelin is pleased to present the very first restaurant selection of the MICHELIN Guide Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City. Among the 103 recommended restaurants (48 in Hanoi and 55 in Ho Chi Minh City), 4 are recognised with one MICHELIN Star for their high-quality cooking (3 in Hanoi and 1 in Ho Chi Minh City), and 29 establishments – the inspectors’ best value-for-money – receive a Bib Gourmand for offering good food at moderate prices.
4 Restaurants Awarded One MICHELIN Star
Amongst the 103 restaurants in the selection, one MICHELIN Star is awarded to 3 restaurants in Hanoi (GIA, Hibana by Koki, Tam Vi) and 1 restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City (Anan Saigon), for offering high quality cooking and outstanding culinary experience that is worth a stop when travelling to Vietnam.
"We’re very proud to finally present the first restaurant selection in Vietnam, with a total of 103 restaurants in the Guide, highlighting 4 restaurants awarded with one MICHELIN Star." said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guide. "The first selection in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City highlights the differences and variety in what these two cities have to offer. Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, offers a very laid back and relax vibe with small shops and restaurants found mostly in the old quarter. Traditional Vietnamese cuisine with Northern flavour is prevalent in this city, with a clear presentation of natural flavour, enhanced with different types of spices and herbs for complexity. Ho Chi Minh City on the other hand, is a bustling and rapidly-growing city that offers a unique energy to all travelers and has a diverse variety of cuisine. Both modern and traditional cooking techniques are well seen, and there is also a great mix of talents and young local chefs eager to present their ideas and creations on the plate. This is just the beginning of the MICHELIN Guide’s journey in Vietnam, and our inspectors have been more than pleased to have discovered many gastronomic spots in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, and I am sure, many more in the coming years."
