Ballin on a budget! For real!

Michelin rated restaurants are the cat’s meow, but they are not all made the same. On one hand you’ll have a restaurant that costs your first born child and on the other hand you’ll have restaurants that fill you up for less than the price of a latte. To each his/her own, but I prefer the cheap options.

If you’re like me, you’ll love this list put together by Traveloka which has the 50 cheapest Michelin meals in the world.
