Tokyo is the best food city in the world; in fact, it has the most number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world. As of 2017, the city racked up a total of 314 Michelin stars, shared by 234 restaurants – and this is not even counting the many restaurants that were conferred the Bib Gourmand honour for their 'exceptionally good food at moderate prices'.
While eating at a Michelin-starred restaurant is high on many travellers' must-do list, most people fear the bank-breaking high prices that these places usually charge for a meal. Truth is, you can still eat cheap at some of these top-rated restaurants. Moreover, many of these restaurants offer affordable lunch sets, which are often a taster of the more elaborate dinner menu. Here are some of the Michelin-starred and Bib Gourmand restaurants where you can enjoy a meal without busting your budget.
