Michelin Guide inspectors have added four venues and promoted another four on the prestigious list, which now features 52 establishments.
With the release of the sixth Michelin Guide Singapore, traveling gourmands spending time in the Lion City now have an updated guide to the crème de la crème of the local culinary scene. A trio of restaurants have once again been awarded three Michelin stars: Les Amis, Odette, and Zén — the latter an offshoot of the 3-Star Frantzén in Stockholm — all retained their coveted titles from the previous year.
Two 1-Star restaurants from the 2021 edition have just been upgraded to two Michelin stars. Named after a novel, Cloudstreet serves up omakase-style Sri Lankan fare with an Australian touch. Michelin Guide inspectors lauded Thevar’s multi-course menu, which blends Indian culinary traditions with European techniques to create a unique combination of flavors. Cloudstreet and Thevar join five other establishments — Jaan by Kirk Westaway, French fine-diner Saint Pierre, Cantonese-Sichuan venue Shisen Hanten, sushi restaurant Shoukouwa, and Waku Ghin — in the two-star category.
Seven new venues were awarded one Michelin star, bringing the total number in Singapore to 42. Four of those are making their debut on the list: sushi at the 12-seater restaurant Hamamoto are proof of the chef’s craftsmanship and his more than 20 years of experience. Marguerite, located at Gardens by the Bay, offers dishes that look deceptively simple, but with flavors bold enough to match the colorful blooms in the surrounding Flower Dome. Nae:um offers innovative courses that present a refreshing take on Korean cuisine, while Rêve brings out the best in Japanese ingredients with classic French techniques and contemporary plating.
Burnt Ends gained one Michelin star for its new opening at Dempsey Road, with Michelin saying the barbecue restaurant’s reselection was “an affirmation of its continued efforts to deliver at high levels of gastronomic excellence.” In addition, two establishments were promoted to one Michelin star from Michelin Plate status. In Tanjong Pagar, “gastro-botanica” restaurant Euphoria celebrates vegetables and herbs like the humble onion, while La Dame de Pic at Raffles Hotel Singapore deftly executes renowned chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s culinary vision. Most of her specialties can be found here, and dishes are prepared mainly using top-quality French produce with a spoonful of local touches and flavors.
