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:
4. Chef Kang’s
Who would have thought a nondescript zi char stall at Serangoon Central, would blossom into 50-seat space restaurant that stretches across three units of shophouse? Well, that’s Chef Kang’s for you. Nestled between Newton Circus and Little India, the Chinese brethren serves homely Cantonese dishes that have gotten patrons flocking in droves. The secret to its secret? Perhaps it’s the fact that Chef Ang Song Kang wields the endangered skill of wok cooking that breathes life into his dishes. Diners ought to make a beeline for its Canto-style dishes, such as the Marbled Goby Fish Soup, featuring a whole deep-fried fish that is simmered to turn the broth milky.
