Hear directly from the source the latest thoughts from our Michelin inspectors.

We've already given you a glimpse of how the inspection process works, but now we want to peel back the curtain a little more to give you additional insight into what's going through the minds of our famously anonymous inspectors. The easiest way to do that? Following one of their Twitter accounts (Chicago, New York or San Francisco) or staying up to date with their latest Instagram posts. And yes, these are real inspectors sharing their personal thoughts.

We started off the month still celebrating the Bib Gourmands for New York City.

We’re all (pig) ears for @daxi_sichuan in #Flushing. Congratulations on the new #bibgourmand! #michelinguideny #michelinguide2019

Should they start a class action lawsuit?

Now there are multiple starred Mexican restaurants in New York City!

A delightful selection of tostadas, tlayudas and tacos. Felicitaciones a @claro.bk @_oxomoco_ @casaenrique! #onemichelinstar #mexicanfood #michelinguideny #michelinguide2019 #michelinstars

Be sure to block out your calendar after lunch at Hometown Bar-B-Que.

That's one beautiful plate of sashimi.

Behold this pristine plate of #sashimi from @kosaka_nyc. Congratulations to the team on being awarded #onemichelinstar! #michelinguideny #michelinguide2019 #michelinstars

This mezze platter at Dyafa is a great way to start a meal.

Fresh, pillowy breads + cool, creamy & flavorful dips make the #mezze platter a delicious start to a meal at @dyafaoakland. Congratulations @reem.assil & team on your #bibgourmand! #michelinguidesf #michelinguide2019

Calling all nacho lovers.

It’s impossible to pick just one thing @elmolinocentral but #nachos smeared w/ poblano-tomatillo salsa is a serious contender #bibgourmand #michelinguidesf #michelinguide2019

Who else wants a caramel roll now?

Have you had Cambodian cuisine before?

Kudos to @nite_nite_nite @nyumbai for offering such rockin’ Cambodian cuisine—like these delicious charred #beef skewers #bibgourmand #michelinguidesf #michelinguide2019

"Another spicy and flavorful Bib Gourmand meal at Farmhouse Kitchen Thai," say inspectors.
