The Singapore Michelin Guide 2017 has been announced, coming hot on the heels after the Bib Gourmand results were revealed a week earlier.
This is the 2nd edition of the Michelin Guide in Singapore.
For the 2017 Singapore Michelin Guide, notable points are:
– Joël Robuchon Restaurant at Resorts World Sentosa retains its 3 Stars, making it the only 3-Star Michelin Restaurant from Singapore.
– Hawker stalls Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles at Crawford Lane and Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle at Chinatown Food Complex – the first street food stalls in the world recognised by the Michelin Guide, retain their stars. There are no new hawker stall entries this year.
– Waku Ghin at Marina Bay Sands gains a star to two.
– There are 11 NEW 1-Michelin Star entries, including Chef Kang’s Kitchen – a boutique Cantonese restaurant that can sit only 40 pax maximum; and Meta Restaurant by Korean Chef Chef Sun Kim.
– The 2 restaurants out from the guide from last year are Forest at Resorts World Sentosa and Terra Tokyo-Italian at Tras Street.
When preparing the selection, Michelin inspectors reviewed all types of cuisines and considered only the quality of the food.
All establishments are selected according to the same five criteria used by Michelin inspectors around the world. They are:
1) quality of the ingredients used
2) mastery of cooking techniques and flavors
3) projection of the chef’s personality in his cuisine
4) value for money
5) consistency – both over time and across the entire menu.
Other factors, such as place, décor, service and facilities offered, are supposedly not considered.
