  1. Uhhhh….how do you leave out Hong Kong soya sauce chicken rice and noodle in Singapore? It’s THE cheapest Michelin star restaurant in the world!

  2. As far as I know, Fukamachi is a minimum of 70,000 jpy per person at lunch. TripAdvisor confirms. Where are you finding $20 pp??

  3. This is incredibly outdated even in 2017. These are by no means the cheapest Michelin Starred restaurants. Again it’s missing THE cheapest Michelin Starred restaurants in the world. Also the prices are way off, the tasting menu at PuntoMX is 97 Euros, they no longer serve a la carte. Only tasting menu.
