9 Michelin-Starred Meals You Can Eat for Under $30
The Michelin Guide was originally created in 1900 to help French travelers find decent lodging on the road, but as is often the case with the French, the focus eventually shifted to food — real fancy, expensive food. Michelin stars often call to mind European fine-dining or exclusive restaurants, which can charge diners $300 or more per person. But eating the world’s most coveted meals doesn’t have to require an advance on your salary. In fact, there are a number of Michelin-starred meals under $30. Many of them are in Asia at local-favorite street food vendors that have enough of a following to attract the attention of the Michelin Tyre Company. Others are unpretentious cuisine in cosmopolitan foodie cities like New York City and London. These are the nine cheapest Michelin restaurants where you can taste high-quality food without a shocking bill.
