Michelin news Singapore Bib Gourmand

More affordable restaurants take the spotlight this year in the second edition of the Bib Gourmand awards in the 2017 MICHELIN guide Singapore released this morning. Among them are names such as French restaurant Bar-Roque Grill and the popular Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant by chef Teppei Yamashita, who also owns Teppei restaurant and Hanare along Tanjong Pagar road.

While last year's Bib Gourmand list had a strong showing of hawkers cooking up a variety of local dishes such as chicken rice to laksa and even the humble curry puff, this year's list puts the spotlight on six new restaurants serving up delicious food at affordable prices. 18 of the 38 eateries this year are restaurants, with a diversity of cuisine types including French, Indian, Japanese and Peranakan food being represented. The Bib Gourmand list recognises restaurants and street food establishments offering quality cuisines at a maximum price of S$45.

The high number of Bib Gourmand awarded eateries this year is also a nod towards Singapore's diverse and dynamic food scene. Here's a perspective: 38 Bib Gourmand eateries spread out across our island means it is possible for one to dine at a high-quality awarded establishment every 19sq-kilometres  (that's 1.5 times the size of Changi airport).

Bar-Roque Grill is a new Bib Gourmand awardee this year.

Michael Ellis, International Director of the MICHELIN guides, says: "A year after the inaugural launch of the MICHELIN guide Singapore, our inspectors remain just as impressed by the dynamic nature of the local culinary scene.

Indeed, with 38 Bib Gourmand restaurants and street food establishments, of which nine are new entrants, Singapore has an admirable list of Bib Gourmand awardees. This attests to the quality of the city’s cuisines.”
