We’re just a week shy of the unveiling of Singapore’s first-ever Michelin Guide and the good people behind the restaurant bible have thrown a little teaser our way to whet our appetite: 17 hawker stores and 17 restaurants have been given the Bib Gourmand award.

While not quite a Michelin star, the Bib Gourmand award – distinguished by the image of the Bibendum smacking his lips – rewards establishments offering a ‘high-quality menu at a reasonable price’. In Singapore’s case, the meals in contention for the award are capped at a maximum of $45.

Well-known hawker stores such as Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice in Maxwell Food Centre, The Fishball Story at Golden Mile Food Centre and Claypot Laksa at Alexandra Village Food Centre are included.

Amoy Street Food Centre is the biggest winner of the day with four stores given the nod: A Noodle Story, Famous Crispy Curry Puff, Hong Kee Beef Noodle and Hoo Kee Rice Dumpling.

Besides hawker centres, neighbourhood restaurants like New Ubin, Ka Soh and Zaffron Kitchen are also included on the Bib Gourmand list.
