Michelin Awards Stars to 38 Restaurants In Singapore, Including 12 New Stars

A year after the launch of its inaugural selection, Michelin unveiled the list of restaurants that have been awarded one or more stars in the MICHELIN guide Singapore 2017.

“With a total of 38 starred restaurants, including 12 new stars, this second edition confirms the dynamism and the quality of Singapore’s culinary scene. Its vitality is driven by the chefs who, as real entrepreneurs, continue to invest in and develop new establishments, but also by Singaporeans and visitors who are always looking for new culinary experiences,” said Michael Ellis, International Director in charge of the MICHELIN guides.

“The atmosphere in Singapore makes it a destination with a gastronomic potential that should continue to grow rapidly in the years to come. It’s very exciting!”

Awarded three stars in 2016, Joël Robuchon Restaurant maintains its stars this year. The 2017 selection of the MICHELIN guide Singapore has a new two-star restaurant, Waku Ghin, where chef Tetsuya Wakuda showcases contemporary Japanese cuisine in keeping with the quintessential qualities of the season’s produce.

Showcasing the strength and quality of the local culinary scene, Singapore also has a total of 30 one-star restaurants, including 11 new ones. “These new starred restaurants are a reflection of the city, which is a true crossroads of trade and commerce: rich and diverse cooking styles, since over 30 different types of cuisine have been awarded one or more stars, ranging from Peranakan and Australian cuisine to Teochew, French and Italian cuisine,” Ellis continued.

Several of these new starred restaurants are run by local chefs, such as Chef Kang’s, where Singaporean chef Kang serves authentic Cantonese cuisine, and Labyrinth, where chef Han Li Guang revisits Singaporean cuisine giving it a touch of modernity. Other new Michelin- starred restaurants this year include Cheek by Jowl and Whitegrass, both serving contemporary Australian cuisine; Saint Pierre, which features French cuisine; Braci and Garibaldi, where chefs offer Italian dishes; Imperial Treasure Fine Teochew Cuisine serving traditional Teochew cuisine; Meta, where dishes are created with Korean and Japanese influences; and finally Iggy’s, where the chef combines superb ingredients to create a truly contemporary cuisine.
