(Newser) – Want a fancypants meal—or 15? Head to Tokyo, which has more three-Michelin-star restaurants than any city in the world ... again. The top honor goes to Tokyo for the sixth year running (it overtook Paris in 2007), reports Reuters, with 15 restaurants claiming the maximum number of stars. Bloomberg notes that's actually down two from 2011. "Japanese gourmet cooking is even more creative, inspired, and inventive than in the past," says the international director of the Michelin guides. To wit, one of the multi-starred restaurants serves the dangerous delicacy fugu, or pufferfish. Click for the full list of Tokyo's three-star eateries.
