A week before the announcement of the very first 2016 MICHELIN Guide Singapore selection, Michelin unveiled the list of 34 restaurants and street food outlets distinguished with a Bib Gourmand by the MICHELIN inspectors. This distinction, as popular with chefs as it is with gourmets, rewards establishments offering a high quality menu at a reasonable price – a maximum of SGD45.
Selected restaurants include Song Fa on New Bridge Road, 328 Katong Laksa, and Laknaa from Little India, and among list are some well-loved stalls in hawker centres, like Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice at Maxwell Food Centre, and many stalls in Amoy Street Food Centre.
“With some firm favourites selected by our inspectors for their good value for money, we are particularly pleased to present a preview of the Bib Gourmand establishments included in the 2016 MICHELIN Guide Singapore,” says Michael Ellis, MICHELIN Guides’ International Director.
On the ground the MICHELIN Guide inspectors unearthed all kinds of delights: from street food to more traditional restaurants and stalls in the popular hawker centres – halls dedicated to the fast authentic food popular with Singaporeans where diners share their tables – they all offer local and delicious Asian cuisine.
“A true crossroads, a mix of cultures with Chinese, Malaysian and Indonesian influences, Singapore’s history is reflected in its cuisine – the variety, simplicity and authenticity completely won over our inspectors,” continues Michael Ellis. So with 19 styles represented, including Indian, Cantonese, and even Vietnamese, the first Bib Gourmand selection is testimony to the richness and diversity of the city’s culinary landscape.
Find the complete MICHELIN Guide selection from 21 July on the website. Today, the MICHELIN Guide collection comprises 29 guides covering 28 countries on four continents, with more than 45,000 addresses worldwide.
