Singapore, July 2016 – The Michelin stars have arrived in the Lion City at last! The Inaugural (First Edition) Michelin Guide for Singapore was released last night, and stars were awarded to a number of fine dining as well as hawker food restaurants.
The Michelin stars went to 29 establishments in Singapore. Only one restaurant was awarded Three Michelin stars – Joel Robouchon at Resort World Sentosa.
The Straits Times published the list, see below and click here to read more about Singapore’s Michelin Guide.
