Money may not be able to buy happiness, but it sure can give access to some of life's greatest luxuries. Be that as it may, some of the world's luxuries don't necessarily come with golden price tags. In the world of luxurious food, these five Michelin-starred establishments offer high-grade meals at rock bottom prices.

New York City has long been revered as one of the world's food and fashion capitals. With high-end restaurants and luxury hotels all over, one would never think to find a cost-efficient fine dining option in The Big Apple. Yet, The Spotted Pig is here to prove us wrong.

This NYC establishment features food from the unlikely partnership of Iron Chef, Mario Batali, and hip-hop legend, Jay Z. This British-Italian fusion bistro has been named Wise Bread's third cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world with meal offerings below $20.

One-star restaurants aren't the only ones that are known to be cost-efficient. Believe it or not, Hand and Flowers is a UK-based restaurant that has a two-star Michelin ranking. This quiet nook offers amazing English and Italian dishes for an unbelievably low cost.

With three-course dinner menus priced at less than $30 and a lunch menu that costs only $11 per course, this restaurant's delicious menu is one to look out for. With menu options such as smoked beef briskets and nutty tortellini, Hand and Flowers has easily made its way to this list's second spot.

Japan has become an extremely popular tourist destination for many reasons. One of the top reasons has to do with its delectable-yet-affordable authentic cuisine. Though more than 200 Japan-based restaurants have been named, only one has found its way onto this list: Nakajima in Tokyo.

This humble establishment may not seem like much, especially considering the fact that it's found in a basement. However, as stated by The Independent, this one-star restaurant boasts some of the most delicious sardine-based menus that will only cost around $8 at the most. 

Once considered to be the most popular budget-friendly Michelin-starred restaurant in the world is Tim Ho Wan. This Hong Kong-based dim sum paradise was awarded its star in 2010 and has since opened branches in Australia, North America, and various parts of Asia.

This world-renowned dim sum restaurant is often plagued by hungry customers that are prompted by the establishment's stars, as well as its delicious Cantonese-style food. It's easy to understand why, considering a meal here will only costs you around $5.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, The New York Post has just featured an unbelievable Michelin-starred establishment in Singapore. What makes it incredible? Well, a delicious gourmet-level meal here will only cost you $1.50.

Singapore's Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle has been crowned as the world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant as of 2016. But don't expect it to be anything too fancy. This Michelin-acknowledged establishment is a humble food cart located in Singapore's Chinatown Complex.
