There has been speculation about Michelin making an entry into Asia, but it’s been mostly talk for so long. However, Singapore finally has received the restaurant guidebook and restaurants in the country are being award stars.
While 29 restaurants were awards stars, none of them received the elusive four-star rating. But one restaurant at Sentosa did receive a three-star rating – Joël Robuchon Restaurant. Also, 34 restaurants received the Bib Gourmand, which is a a less-exclusive distinction that recognizes moderately priced restaurants.
But the most interesting thing is that two of Singapore’s most popular street hawkers were part of the 29 establishments to receive Michelin stars. Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle and Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle each received a one-star rating, which means that customers can have Michelin-starred meals for less than $4USD.
