If you’re looking for some of the best food on the planet, put Paris and New York City on the back burner. The hot spot with the most Michelin stars is Tokyo—so start planning your food-flanked getaway ASAP.

It’s no wonder why famed chef Anthony Bourdain said if he could live in one place forever, it would be the capital of Japan: According to AFAR, Tokyo has held the record for having more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city for the majority of the last 10 years. While Paris came in second place, the recently released Michelin Guide Tokyo 2018 listed 166 restaurants at a single star, 56 at 2, and 12 at the coveted 3, a distinction that means the restaurant is “worth a special journey.”

“The Michelin guide reflects the great ability and skills found in Tokyo. The rich variety of our selection is a testament to the gastronomic strength of Tokyo, a city where even ramen restaurants have stars.” —Michael Ellis

“The Michelin guide reflects the great ability and skills found in Tokyo,” said Michael Ellis, international director in charge of the Michelin guides, in a press release. “The rich variety of our selection is a testament to the gastronomic strength of Tokyo, a city where even ramen restaurants have stars.”

So, where to chow down first upon arrival? Well, you might want to make reservations in advance, but a few musts are sushi at Sukiyabashi Jiro (where President Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe had dinner in 2014!), Kanda (a Japanese restaurant where chef Hiroyuki Kanda uses customers’ individuality to create a personalized meal), and Joël Robuchon (a hot spot that serves chic French cuisine).

Hungry yet? Well, perhaps ordering an omega-3-rich lunch of sushi rolls will sate your palate until you plan the healthy foodie getaway of Bourdain’s dreams
