Michelin Guide out now with 3 Korean eateries

The first Korean restaurant to receive the highest rank on the prestigious gourmet review book Michelin Guide appeared in Japan.

Moranbong, a Korean restaurant in Tokyo, received two stars in the 2012 edition of the Michelin Guide, according to statements from the Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries yesterday.

Three is the highest number of stars that the French reviewer gives to restaurants.

Two other Korean restaurants, Sennohana and Matsunomi, also joined the list on the gourmet review, receiving a star each.

The announcement on the stars by the French gourmet reviewer was made in late November last year.

The Korean government said it rewarded the three restaurants on their efforts of promoting Korean culture and food at the Korean embassy in Tokyo during the weekend.

Minister Suh Kyu-yong is also planning to visit New York and give an award to Danji, the first Korean restaurant to receive a Michelin star. Danji received a star in October of last year.

The Food Ministry said it has pushed forward projects to locate high quality Korean restaurants in the overseas market and introduce them in a guide book made in foreign languages.
