Tokyo becomes world's best place for food

275x250.jpgTokyo has become the world's food capital after getting more Michelin stars than any other city.

The Japanese city now has 11 three-star restaurants and a total of 261 stars across 197 restaurants - that's more than Paris or New York.

Paris has 10 three-star restaurants and New York has three, London meanwhile has just one, Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea.

The dominance of Tokyo is all the more impressive considering it was only included in the Michelin guides from 2007.

However, critics did have 160,000 restaurants there to pick from - it's not exactly a hard life for them is it?
A spokesperson for Michelin Guides said: "Tokyo is by far the world capital of gastronomy and now also has the most three-star restaurants.

"The city has great quality ingredients, from the sea, from the mountains and the quality of the chefs is excellent."
