Guay Jub Mr Joe

Guay Tiew Mu Rung Rueang

Guay Tiew Mu Rung Rueng may only serve one dish, but they’ve obviously perfected it as the Michelin team thought that it deserved a Bib Gourmand award.

For the finishing touch, the Michelin guide recommends you ask for your dish to be topped with a piece of crispy fish skin.

Raan Jay Fai

Netflix star Auntie Fai has held onto her Michelin star for the second year running.
