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 Whut?

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.

38 Bib Gourmand awards this year

This year, the Michelin Guide has bestowed this award to 38 food establishments in Singapore. Nine of them are new entrants.

Some of the winners are long-time Singapore favourites such as:

The nine new entrants are: Ah Er Soup, Zai Shun Curry Fish Head, Bar-Roque Grill, Liao Fan Hawker Chan, Man Man Japanese Unagi, Shirokane Tori-tama, The Blue Ginger, New Lucky Claypot Rice, and Tsuta (Pacific Plaza).

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.
