#MICHELINGUIDESG Michelin Guide Singapore 2021 Bib Gourmand

Michelin is pleased to announce this year’s Bib Gourmand selection for the 2021 edition of the MICHELIN Guide Singapore, which celebrates its 5th anniversary this year. This year’s list highlights a total of 69 venues — 11 more than in 2019 — spanning a mix of restaurants, street food establishments, and hawker stalls. Of these, 12 are new entries on the Bib Gourmand selection. They join the growing ranks of establishments nominated by Michelin inspectors that offer diners very good value for money, with a complete and high-quality menu priced at a maximum of SG$45.

The new entrants to the Bib Gourmand selection include 3 restaurants and 9 hawker stalls. Among the new restaurants, Da Shi Jia Big Prawn Mee (Killiney) serves prawn noodle soup and fried prawn bee hoon that diners can customise with a variety of noodles and sizes ranging from regular to XXL. Kotuwa (Jalan Besar) offers hoppers and seafood-focussed dishes by a chef-owner of Sri Lankan heritage, while The Coconut Club (Ann Siang) enriches coconut-centric dishes such as nasi lemak with Malaysia-imported coconuts for extra flavour and authenticity.

In addition, the 9 hawker establishments offer a span of iconic Singaporean fare such as bak kut teh, laksa, and sliced fish soup. They include Fei Fei • Roasted Noodle and Heng Heng Cooked Food in Yuhua Village Market and Food Centre; Jian Bo Tiong Bahru Shui Kueh and Soh Kee Cooked Food in Jurong West 505 Market & Food Centre; Lai Heng Handmade Teochew Kueh (Yuhua Market & Hawker Centre), Hainan Zi (Chong Pang Market and Food Centre), Joo Siah Bak Koot Teh (Kai Xiang Food Centre), Jun Yuan House Of Fish (Old Airport Road Food Centre), and Kwang Kee Teochew Fish Porridge (Newton Food Centre).

In total, this year’s selection features 42 hawker stalls, 6 street food establishments and 21 restaurants that front a range of cuisines reflective of Singapore’s identity as a cultural melting pot with a unique culinary heritage and tradition.

The selection, together with the recent addition of Singapore’s street food on the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Culture Heritage of Humanity in 2020, is a clear recognition of the city-state’s commitment to protect and promote hawker culture for future generations.

Amidst the raging COVID-19 pandemic, the food and beverage industry in Singapore continued to play an essential role in keeping people from all walks of life fed and supported with their favourite dishes. Their resilience in staying afloat, pivoting, and adapting to relevant technological tools have been an inspiration to others.

Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides, says, “Awarded by Michelin inspectors to food establishments that serve good quality food at a good value, Bib Gourmands are often described as ‘personal favourites’ of theirs. It is no surprise then to find a large proportion of Singapore’s cherished hawker stalls and street food establishments among the Bib Gourmands. Their tenacity to brave through these uncertain times has been a source of strength to everyone and this uniquely Singapore’s hawker culture a source of pride to the nation. Now, they are inscribed on the UNESCO Intangible Culture List.”
