Fifty-two food-and-beverage establishments in Singapore — including seven new awardees — were recognised at the Michelin Star Revelation event on Tuesday (July 12) night.

Held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, it was Michelin Singapore’s first physical event since 2019 in celebration of the country’s dynamic and cosmopolitan cuisine, and world-class food scene.

Headlining the event were four young Singaporean chefs who have made waves on the global culinary stage. Chefs Mathew Leong (Re-naa, Norway), Jimmy Lim (JL Studio, Taiwan), Barry Quek (Whey, Hong Kong), and Angela Lai (Tairroir, Taiwan) cooked up a storm for guests. Joining them were international culinary veterans who have made Singapore their home — chefs Tetsuya Wakuda (Waku Ghin, Singapore) and Tristin Farmer (Zen, Singapore).

In all, there were 42 one-starred, seven two-starred and three three-starred eateries. Of these, seven restaurants made the list for the first time, and two are newly crowned two-starred restaurants.

Here’s the full list of Michelin star awardees:

1 Michelin star

One-starred restaurants are notable for their high-quality cooking and are “worth a stop”.

Out of the 35 restaurants retaining their one-star status this year, 11 have done so for six consecutive editions — since the first Michelin Singapore guide in 2016.
