These star-studded restaurants display culinary prowess and true creativity
On 29 June, Michelin Guide Singapore bestowed 38 restaurants with its coveted stars, up from last year’s 29 awardees.
While previously awarded Forest and Terra didn’t retain their stars, 11 new entrants now take their spots in the dazzling tier, clinching one Michelin star each.
Waku Ghin was bumped up to join the two-stars category, a well-deserving honour according to industry insiders.
As with last year, Joël Robuchon Restaurant at Resorts World Sentosa retains three stars and is the only F&B establishment in Singapore with that accolade.
Compared to the fanfare of 2016’s inaugural affair, this year’s award ceremony felt a little lacklustre in comparison, considering neither new hawker stalls nor three-Michelin-starred worthy entrants were inducted to the prestigious list.
With that saying, the newly-minted restaurants still dazzle in their own right.
Here are some of our favourite new Michelin Star awardees:
Since opening in January last year, the restaurant has made waves for incorporating international influences into its contemporary Australian menu. This culinary direction stems from Chef-Owner Sam Aisbett’s love for cross-cultural flavours that are unconfined by food trends or geographical boundaries. Therefore, diners can expect to find Asian ingredients like Fatt Choy and Buah Keluak in Whitegrass’ dishes, alongside the best of native Australian produce. Aside from its a la carte dishes, the restaurant also offers three- and five-course vegetarian dinner menus, which feature culinary creations such as the violet artichokes and truffle salads and Hokkaido milk jelly served with burnet honey whip.
