Michelin Guide awards Bib Gourmand to 38 food establishments in Singapore
Enjoy your favourite dishes with a side of validation from a tyre company.
Almost a year ago, French tyre company turned culinary authority, Michelin, published a guide which awarded Bib Gourmand status to 34 food establishments in Singapore.
Bib Gourmand is an award given to food establishments that offer a high quality menu at a reasonable price. How reasonable? A meal can’t cost more than $45.

Notably, Tsuta, which touted itself as the world’s first and only Michelin-starred ramen eatery, found itself on the Bib Gourmand list this year.
Well, Bib or no Bib, you can be sure Singaporeans will still visit their favourite “under $45” stalls here. Just be prepared to queue a bit longer.
