Watch any food reality show and you’ll know the importance of Michelin Star and how important this star is to chefs. They work day and night to master the art of Fine Dining in the quest of receiving this Michelin Star beauty. Michelin Star is the ultimate Hallmark of a Fine Dining restaurant which is only given to honour those who have mastered the art of gourmet food – innovation, experience and flavour. All of this together constitutes as Michelin-worthy, however, it the review of anonymous food critics that can help an establishment to earn up to three stars.

While we are still waiting for a Michelin Star restaurant in our country, because why not? Everyone who can afford an experience like this should definitely do it once. Remember, you only live once, therefore, as much good food as possible.
