Michelin Guide Singapore 2017: New Michelin star restaurants revealed

The much anticipated 2017 Singapore Michelin Star list was announced on Thursday (Jun 29) as the second edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore was launched.

SINGAPORE: The much anticipated 2017 Singapore Michelin Star list was announced on Thursday (Jun 29) as the second edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore was launched.

Eleven new eateries received their very first one-star accolade, including 17-year-old Saint Pierre by chef-owner Emmanuel Stroobant, Cheek By Jowl by Sri Lanka-born and Tetsuya-trained Rishi Naleendra, as well as modern Singaporean restaurant Labyrinth by Singaporean chef Han Li Guang.

Keeping their coveted star are two Singaporean hawker stalls - Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle and Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle. They made history last year by garnering one Michelin star each, positioning Singapore as the official home of the world's cheapest Michelin-starred meal.

Chef Malcolm Lee’s Candlenut, the world's first Peranakan restaurant to be awarded the coveted star, is also back on the list.

Two restaurants were dropped from the one-star list - chef Seita Nakahara's Terra and Sam Leong's Forest.

Modern European-Japanese restaurant Waku Ghin joined this year's list of two-star eateries, taking its place among the likes of L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, Restaurant Andre and Odette.

Joel Robuchon Restaurant remains the only restaurant in Singapore with three Michelin stars.

All establishments, according to Michelin Guides, are visited and judged independently.

Over the past year, anonymous Michelin inspectors have gone around the island rating local establishments based on five criteria - quality of ingredients used, mastery of cooking techniques and flavours, projection of the chef’s personality in his or her cuisine, value for money and consistency, both over time and across the entire menu.
