34 eateries from Singapore have made it to the Michelin Bib Gourmand for 2016. (The full results of Singapore Michelin Guide 2016.)
First responses from friends include “Why this stall, why not that?”
I quickly glanced through the list and noted the predictable favourites (shoo-ins) – Tian Tian Chicken Rice, Song Fa BKT, Whampoa’s Hoover Rojak.
Some food are conspicuously, obviously missing.
No Prata? No BCM? (Updated: Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles won 1 star!) No Nasi Lemak? No Char Kway Tiao?
The Bib Gourmand guide highlights restaurants offering “exceptional good food at moderate prices.” In Singapore’s case, there is the inclusion of hawker stalls. (Read: 17 Michelin Bib Gourmand Hawker Stalls from Singapore)
They must offer menu items priced below a maximum determined by local economic standards. In Singapore’s guide, the price is set at $45.

My Guess is for this inaugural guide, they are likely to be more conservative and thus did not include too many establishments.
Also, there seems to be a higher concentration of food stalls within Central region – Amoy Street Food Centre.
Any other places you feel are left out?
By the way, my Favourite hawker stalls and Zhi Char places, I hope you don’t raise prices so quickly after receiving the Bib Gourmand, okay?
