9 new Singapore eateries make Michelin Bib Gourmand 2022 list
This includes three hawker stalls, five restaurants and one street food establishment.
The 2022 edition of the Bib Gourmand selection for the Michelin Guide Singapore will include nine new recommendations, announced Michelin Guide on Tuesday (Jul 5).
The Bib Gourmand category was created in 1997 to recognise establishments that offer diners a value-for-money gourmet experience in Singapore, priced at a maximum of $45. All inclusions are nominated by Michelin guide inspectors.
This year’s selection consists of 67 Bib Gourmand locations, with nine new inclusions including three hawker centre stalls, five restaurants and one street food establishment.
Among the new restaurant inclusions, Cumi Bali serves authentic Indonesian cuisines with homemade sauces, made with a blend of natural spices.
Another brainchild of the chef-owner behind Cloudstreet and Kotuwa, Wine bar Fool brings an interesting selection of snacks and small plates with precise execution and plating.
Then there is Unagi Tei, previously known as Man-man, which ships live eels from Japan that are then char-grilled.
Also making the list is Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, which received a Bib Gourmand for its Isan cuisine hailing from northeastern Thailand, including the stall’s well-known Leng Zaab and the PenLaos Signature Chicken.
Lastly in the restaurant category, One Prawn & Co in MacPherson Road serves prawn noodles in a broth that is packed with the tomalley of countless prawn heads.
For the hawker stall inclusions, Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodle located at Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre offers blanched rice noodles tossed in thick gravy, or soup noodles in ox bone broth.
Next, Kelantan Kway Chap · Pig Organ Soup offers kwap chap ribbon noodles with pork cuts and offal pairing, cooked in a soy-based marinade with spices.
Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre’s Lixin Teochew Fishball Noodles are well-known for their handmade fishballs in soup that are mixed with blanched noodles tossed in chilli sauce.
Lastly, street food stall Sing Lung HK Cheong Fun in Beach Road is also recognised with a Bib Gourmand recommendation. Helmed by a chef with years of experience in Cantonese cooking, all of the stall’s Hong Kong-style rice noodle rolls are freshly made on-site.
