Japan doesn’t deserve to be on the World’s Best Restaurants list?

There was an interesting survey on the Economist.com the day before yesterday about the distrubution of the World’s Best Restaurants in selected countries.

What caught my attention was this quote:

“The biggest puzzle, however, is the absence of Japan. Tokyo has more Michelin stars than any city in the world, but Japan has only had three restaurants in this top 50 since 2002.”

Perhaps this is somewhat due to the fact that even the supposedly “lower quality”, “cheap” eateries in Japan provide relatively high quality food AND service and thus the need for over-the-top, ground-breaking restaurants is diminished?
