Michelin Guide Singapore confirmed

Michelin Guide, the most famous ranker of restaurants in the world, will soon produce a Singapore edition.

The launch of a Michelin Guide Singapore was formally confirmed this week after growing rumours earlier in the year, the most recent at the time of the release of the 2016 Hong Kong edition.

The Michelin Guide Singapore will be produced in the first half of next year. The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and world-renowned wine expert Robert Parker are collaborating in the publication.  

Restaurants in Europe, Hong Kong and other destinations covered by the growing collection of Michelin Guides, wear it as a badge of honour to have one, two or three Michelin Stars. The Hong Kong edition of the guide made headlines last month for including street food for the first time.

The Singapore guide will be bilingual – in English and Chinese – and join Japan and Hong Kong/Macau as Asia’s third guide among 24 internationally.

Michelin says its anonymous food and hotel reviewers have already visited Singapore gathering information for the new edition.

“The extent and high quality of Singapore’s culinary scene, which is among the most dynamic in Asia, completely won us over,” said Michael Ellis, international director of the Michelin Guides.
