Copenhagen and its New Asian Wave shine at this year’s Michelin Guide announcement, with the Asian-inspired restaurant Koan entering the guide with two stars after being open for just three months and its sister restaurant juju awarded with a Bib Gourmand
Copenhagen once again led the way at the 2023 Michelin Guide Nordic Countries revelation, which took place on June 12th in Turku, Finland. The Danish capital retains its 24 Michelin Stars spread over 14 restaurants, keeping its position as the leading Michelin city in the Nordics. Stockholm and Oslo share the second place with 13 stars each, as Helsinki takes third place with 6 stars and Reykjavík has been awarded with 2 stars.
Copenhagen’s New Asian Wave has also been acknowledged in this year’s Michelin Guide, with the newest entry on the list being the Korean-inspired restaurant Koan. The former noma chef and restaurant chef at 108 Kristian Bauman is the man behind it. Koan opened at the beginning of April this year and has, in just three months, cemented its gastronomic position in Copenhagen, earning two stars in the guide.
Finally, a new bib-gourmand goes to the restaurant juju, another Korean-inspired restaurant opened by Kristian Bauman. The bib-gourmand rating is awarded to restaurants that serve good and well-cooked food at moderate prices.
