Top Michelin Featured Restaurants in Singapore

Top Michelin Featured Restaurants in Singapore 1

What is a Michelin star?

Michelin stars are given out on a scale of one to three stars, with only top establishments in the world qualifying.

To earn one Michelin star, a restaurant needs to be “a very good restaurant in this category”.

For two stars, it needs to be “excellent cooking, worth a detour”. For three stars, a restaurant must serve “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.”

The history of the Michelin star

According to the Michelin website, the Michelin Guide was originally intended to encourage motorists to explore France, and naturally, buy more Michelin tires.

The little red guidebook was initially free until it relaunched in 1920, costing seven francs.

It listed hotels and restaurants by category. The Michelin star system, ranging from zero to three, began in 1931.

The Michelin Guide has now expanded to 30 territories in three continents.

Michelin restaurant inspectors are experienced food and beverage pros who visit and review restaurants anonymously, so restaurants do not know when they are being considered for a Michelin star.

How to win a Michelin star

Jeju Noodle Bar, New York City
Awards: Michelin Star ⭐️

How to get a Michelin Star

Last fall, when Jeju Noodle Bar earned its first Micheline star, manager Kyung Lee says they were not expecting it, because Michelin hadn’t recognized any U.S. noodle shops in the past. “It was a total surprise,” Lee says. “We found out the same day as the customers.”

Chef Douglas Kim has worked in other Michelin-starred restaurants including Chef’s Table and Per Se, so Lee believes that Kim’s commitment to quality helped them become the first Michelin-starred noodle shop in the U.S.

“Although [Chef Douglas] says he didn’t expect it, deep in his heart he really was going for it,” Lee says. “You can clearly tell in his food and his ingredient usage; he was really going for the star.”

Q & A session with Werner Loens, Director of the Michelin Guide

Can you tell us about the Michelin Guide and what it represents?

For more than 120 years, the Michelin Guide has been a tool for Mobility.

Initially, the guide was designed to contribute to motorists’ mobility, making car driving safer, with leisure.

Initial guides presented a list of garages where motorists could get their vehicles repaired and a list of hotels where they could stay while repairs were being carried out, which at the time could take several days.

Then we added itineraries and attributed numbers to the roads, hence the numbering of the roads we know today, such as the N7 and D54.

How do you find the restaurants you are going to visit?

Each region is assigned an inspector who is responsible for seeking out restaurants.

The inspector finds restaurants that they think are worth testing.

Today, with the internet and social networks, it is much easier to discover new restaurants.

You must imagine that back in the day, everything was done on the ground. Inspectors would only find out about restaurants through word-of-mouth.

How does a chef get their first Michelin star?

We follow the chefs for whom cooking is a real art form.

Those who use the best products, master the techniques, master taste and refined cuisine and, most importantly, are consistent.

To be considered for a Michelin star, the chef must demonstrate this.

What advice do you have for chefs aspiring to win a Michelin star?

We do not offer advice to chefs because we support the expression of their creativity.

We have criteria on which our inspectors base their reports, but we prefer to keep them hush and allow their natural cooking instincts to shine through.

What are your selection criteria?

Our primary goal is, above all else, to eat well.

For that reason, we base our selections for Michelin star restaurants on the quality of products used, the chef’s mastery of culinary techniques, the taste of the food, savoir-faire and, as I mentioned earlier, consistency.

How important is food? What are the other factors that contribute to a restaurant’s greatness?

A Michelin star is primarily awarded based on what is on the plate.

The restaurant’s ambience is less of an important factor for us.

We also consider the quality to price ratio, which corresponds more to the style of restaurants.

We know that service and process differ between small-scale restaurants and those with large teams of experienced professionals.

There are simpler, less formal restaurants that still demonstrate a mastery of the art of cooking.

What would stop you from going back to a restaurant?

Put simply, a poor dining experience.

I would not go back to a restaurant that operates like a factory where food is churned out on a production line and the chef is not emotionally invested in what they are producing.

The 5 selection criteria for Michelin star restaurants

High-quality produce
Chefs with a mastery of culinary techniques
The taste of the food
Savoir-faire
A consistently excellent dining experience.

Michelin Star Restaurants in Singapore

The results of the 2019 Singapore Michelin Star list were finalized and published, with a total of 44 restaurants lauded for their culinary excellence, up from 39 in 2018.

Odette and Les Amis were both awarded with three Michelin stars, and the list as a whole saw seven new additions to its ranks.

Arguably the most coveted culinary accolade in the world, the Michelin Star list celebrates top dining establishments around the globe, with each star denoting grades of excellence.

Restaurants are rated based on five criteria: quality of ingredients used, mastery of cooking technique and flavors, projection of the chef’s personality in his or her cuisine, value for money, as well as consistency over time and across the entire menu.

Sample costs of Michelin Star Restaurants

There are three lunch options at Alma, Goodwood Park Hotel Singapore, a Michelin star awarded joint– 3, 4 and 5 course menus priced at $39++, $55++ and $88++ respectively.

Garibaldi – Michelin Star Italian Restaurant in Purvis Street serves an affordable Set Lunch Menu ($39++) and an interesting Chef’s Lunch Menu ($88++).
