Michelin is a tire company that has been awarding restaurants with stars for over 100 years. The company started out as an automotive supplier and only began issuing their famous restaurant ratings in the 1920s. Michelin initially focused on high-end French cuisine, but today they also consider street food vendors worthy of recognition!
Michelin stars are awarded to restaurants that have a high degree of excellence. The Michelin Guides, published by the French tire company, have been around since 1900 and are now used by many people around the world as a source for recommendations for restaurants and street food vendors.
