TOKYO, December 3. /TASS/. Tokyo was named on Wednesday the gastronomical capital of the world for the eighth consecutive year in Michelin's gourmet guide for 2015.

A total of 267 Tokyo restaurants won Michelin stars, 19 of them for the first time. Twelve restaurants gained three stars, Michelin's top honor.

According to Michelin, three-star eateries employ best chefs and serve meals worth making a special trip to taste them.

For the first time, the Michelin guide listed restaurants serving chanko nabe, a rich stew with chicken, tofu, vegetables, and seafood that helps sumo wrestlers gain weight.

Among the restaurants that won the three-star rating are those serving fugu, the blowfish, which can be lethally poisonous if improperly cooked.

The first Michelin gourmet guidebook was published in 1900.
