Last Friday, stars descended on Singapore – Michelin Stars, that is! Only 29 out of the 200 restaurants surveyed received the prestigious accolade (see the complete list of winners here), while 34 additional eateries received the Bib Gourmand rating for value-for-money eats below S$45 (see the complete list here).
The Singapore Michelin Guide gives restaurants up to 3 stars to distinguish those that serve exceptional food. Table setting, decor, or service quality doesn’t matter; the inspectors only care about how great the food is. And whether or not you agree with the guide’s anonymous reviewers, you’re still likely to get a better meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant than anywhere else.
In general, the star ratings mean:
- One star – A very good restaurant in its category, offering food at a consistently high standard. Drop by if it’s in your neighbourhood.
- Two stars – A restaurant with excellent cuisine and skillfully prepared dishes of outstanding quality. Definitely worth a detour.
- Three stars – One of the best restaurants in the world. Book a flight just to savour its distinctive signature dishes.
