It’s been a while since we had such a large-scale event to celebrate Singapore’s dining scene – last night, it was none other than the Michelin Guide Singapore 2022 awards. So what’s changed since Michelin Guide Singapore 2021? For one, a grand total of 52 restaurants were recognised for their culinary skill and masterful cooking techniques at the award’s ceremony at MBS.
When it comes to the crème de la crème of dining, nothing has changed in this arena. It’s the same as last year’s list. The three fine-dining restaurants fronting Singapore’s list of top restaurants remain as Les Amis, Odette, and Zén. Impressively, there are now two new Michelin-starred restaurants with two stars: Cloudstreet along Amoy Street and Indian-inspired Thevar. This brings the total number of two-star restaurants to seven, including Jaan by Kirk Westaway, Saint Pierre, Shisen Hanten, Shoukouwa, and Waku Ghin.
In other news, seven new restaurants have received a one Michelin star, with four of them having won this accolade for the first time. Congrats to kappo sushiya Hamamoto, Gardens by the Bay’s Marguerite, modern Korean restaurant Nae:um, and French-Japanese fine-dining restaurant Rêve!
Restaurants Burnt Ends, Euphoria, and La Dame de Pic are also considered as new additions, the former having shifted to Dempsey and the latter two having upgraded to a star from Selected Restaurants. Unfortunately, the list has since bid adieu to old favourites like Garibaldi, Corner House, and Shinji by Kanesaka (The St. Regis). But nonetheless, this marks a hefty total of 41 restaurants in Singapore with a one Michelin star. Talk about dining options – there’s even a hawker option.
Well, since Hawker Chan was booted off last year’s list, now there’s just the one hawker stall that has a Michelin star in the whole of Singapore. Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle, known for its hearty bowls of bak chor mee.
