Snippets: The complete list to Michelin Guide Singapore 2016 | With possibly the cheapest ever Michelin dining experience at S$2!

Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle, Crawford Lane

A total of 37 stars were awarded, this is the first ever Michelin guide in Singapore. We saw some pleasant surprises and definitely some names which we were surprised didn’t make the cut this time round, or were shortchanged in their stars. Regardless, this can only be a positive thing for Singapore’s food thriving food scene and if anything, we see it as a healthy competition amongst restaurants to stay ahead of the game in terms of quality, creativity and service, which can only mean good for diners like us. Two big winners announced has to be Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle in Crawford Lane and Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle located in Chinatown Food Complex, both falling in the street food category and are the first of its kind in the world for Michelin Guides. Previously, Tim Ho Wan held the record of offering the cheapest Michelin-starred dining experience but with Singapore’s foray into the acclaimed guide, you can now enjoy a bowl of Michelin-starred noodles at Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle for S$5 (approximately USD3.70 as of today’s exchange rate) or at Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle for S$2 (approximately USD1.50 as of today’s exchange rate).

But well, the downside is that we will also have to be prepared to battle with longer queues, waiting time and possibly a raise in prices in these newly crowned Michelin-starred restaurants. It’s time to pay some of these restaurants a visit soon.

Restaurants are assessed based on five criteria of (1) quality of the ingredients used, (2) mastery of flavour and cooking techniques, (3) the personality of the chef in his cuisine, (4) value for money and (5) consistency between visits.
