Michelin Guide 2017 Singapore: New Michelin star restaurants unveiled

By  |  0 Comments

It has been a year since the inaugural list was released and and 2017 sees 11 new eateries that received their very first stars. This brings the total number of starred restaurants in Singapore to 38.


Local favourites, such as Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle, Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles, Candlenut and Lei Garden are amongst those that retained their stars this year. They are now joined by several restaurants helmed by local chefs, such as Chef Kang’s, serving authentic Cantonese cuisine,  as well as Labyrinth, which serves up mod-Sin dishes.


With Singapore being a melting pot of cultures and cuisines, several new stars also went to establishments serving a variety of cuisines like Cheek by Jowl, Garibaldi, Saint Pierre and Iggy’s. Michael Ellis, International Director in charge of the Michelin guides, praised Singaporeans for being one of the most passionate nations of eaters and how the guide has been shaped by them looking for new culinary experiences.


He also took some time to express his delight at the innovation and consistency of Japanese contemporary restaurant, Waku Ghin, who have been upgraded from the one-star list and now takes its place amongst other fine dining restaurants like André, Odette and Shinsen Hanten on the two-star list.


Rounding up the list of restaurants is Joël Robuchon, which has maintained its 3-star accolade, with Michael praising them for not resting on their laurels but constantly creating fabulous dining experiences for their patrons.


Michael Ellis, “I think this year again has shown how unique, dynamic and exciting the Singapore dining scene has been. When I want to reward one of our Michelin inspectors who has done well for us, I tell them I will be sending them to Singapore!”
