Back in Singapore for its fourth year, the Michelin Guide has unveiled its curated list of the best places to have a meal. This year, a total of 44 restaurants have been conferred that elusive star – or, as the French call it, 'macaroon' – by the epicurean manual. The guide uses five criteria to assess these restaurants: mastery of technique; quality of ingredients; chef's personality; value for money; and consistency.
The list leans towards fine-dining restaurants that offer degustation menus that often cost upwards of $100, however, it also names some hawkers and casual dining spots like Putien if you don't want to break the bank. Alternatively, head over to this list of restaurants that earned a Bib Gourmand award, Michelin-recommended meals that cost less than $45.
