MICHELIN Guide Singapore, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, awards stars to a total of 49 restaurants for 2021. One restaurant is promoted to Three MICHELIN Stars, one restaurant is promoted to Two MICHELIN Stars, five restaurants are promoted to One MICHELIN Star, and seven restaurants were newly awarded with One MICHELIN Star. In addition, Singapore's first MICHELIN Guide Young Chef Award is introduced.
Following more than a year of uncertainties due to the ongoing battle with Covid-19, the recent announcement is testament to the resilience of Singapore's F&B industry.
According to Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides, "Despite the challenges posed by 2020, it has been impressive to observe how the chefs and their teams were able to reinvent and adapt to the unfolding situation. On top of managing their restaurants, they also came together in looking out for those who were in need in their communities; from feeding migrant workers and frontline workers, to setting up welfare funds for displaced F&B staff. In this 2021 edition, we pay tribute to the perseverance and dedication of these professionals, who continue to bring us together over the finest gastronomy and experiences. I believe the readers of the MICHELIN Guide and all food lovers are excited to continue discovering Singapore's colorful and resilient dining scene, as well as the reinventions that have taken place over the last year and those to come."
