The results of Singapore’s Michelin guide for 2023 have just been announced: A total of 55 eateries have made the cut for this year’s star-studded edition!
The coveted Michelin stars are awarded to the top dining establishments in our city, with 52 stars conferred in 2022’s edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore.
Started in 1900, the guide was conceived as a way for the general public to suss out the best gourmet experiences in France.
It eventually grew into an internationally recognised accolade given only to the creme de la creme of the restaurant industry.
In 2016, the first edition of Singapore’s Michelin guide was published and it has since become a yearly affair — save for 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This year’s Michelin Guide Singapore ceremony is held at Parkroyal Collection Marina Bay.
This comes after the recent Michelin Bib Gourmand announcement, which saw a whopping 79 eateries on its 2023 list. It discerns the best-value eats in Singapore.
