It all began when the Michelin brothers (great name for a video game spin-off, if any) created a small guide filled with practical information for travellers. It would detail info such as maps, tips on changing tyres, petrol station locations, and, delightfully for weary sojourners, a list of places to eat or stay overnight.

In 1920, they began selling the guide for seven francs. As the guide's popularity grew, the Michelin brothers hired a team of mystery diners—now known as restaurant inspectors—to anonymously review eateries. And that evolved into the Michelin Guide that we know of today.

So, this year. This year, the Micheline Guide Singapore celebrates its eighth edition and reveals notable updates: Meta earned two Michelin stars and four new restaurants received their first Michelin star.

The guide features a diverse range of top-rated restaurants, Bib Gourmand venues, Michelin-selected establishments as well as introducing Singapore's second Michelin Green Star.

Here is the list of restaurants that have recently joined the Michelin Selection.

Newly Awarded Restaurants with One MICHELIN Star



Helmed by Chilean chefs Araya and Fernanda Guerrero, the couple previously operated a restaurant in China. Showcasing an eclectic mix of Chilean and Japanese ingredients, their dishes bring a South Pacific theme and are inspired by Araya’s experiences in Spain and Japan.



This restaurant showcases executive chef Masahiko Kawano’s culinary vision through an exquisite 10-course dinner menu. Kawano combines French and Japanese ingredients, elevating his creations with his mastery of French techniques. His meticulous attention to detail shines in the daily refinement of his duck consommé, demonstrating his commitment to perfection.



Just a stone’s throw from Singapore's major attractions, this dining experience by Chef Bjoern Alexander combines Italian cuisine with bold Asian influences. Enjoy watching what goes down in their open kitchen as well as the stunning views of Marina Bay Sands and the Esplanade. The signature dish—whole red prawn—features perfectly smoked, juicy crustacean paired with crispy prawn toast for a delightful contrast in textures.



Led by Singaporean chef-owner Malcolm Lee, Pangium offers an exquisite menu exploring the potential of Straits cuisine. Named after the Pangium plant—which gives us Buah Keluak, an essential ingredient in Peranakan cuisine—Pangium celebrates Lee's family heritage. Through meticulously crafted dishes, guests experience exceptional flavours that reflect generations of culinary tradition.

Affordable MICHELIN Options

For something that's kinder to the wallet, consider exploring some of the hawkers recently added to the Michelin Guide:

Food Street Fried Kuay Teow Mee


Their kway teow mee bursts with wok hei, blending ribbon rice noodles, egg noodles, bean sprouts and scrambled eggs in their secret sauce. Toppings include either clams or a seafood medley of fish, squid, shrimp, and clams. Remember to bring cash, as it's the only payment method accepted.

Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre, #02-173, 335 Smith Street, 050335, Singapore

Guan Kee Fried Carrot Cake


Despite its name, fried carrot cake is actually made with radish and is not a dessert. It comes in two varieties: black, which offers a caramel-like sweetness, and white, which is savoury with an eggy flavour. For the best experience, try a combo of both varieties.

Albert Centre, #01-59, 270 Queen Street, 180270, Singapore

Maxwell Fuzhou Oyster Cake


The second-generation owner continues to fry oyster cakes à la minute, just as her mother did in the 1960s. Though slightly darker than usual, the minced pork, oysters, prawns, and coriander remain soft and juicy beneath the crispy crust.

Maxwell Food Centre, #01-05, 1 Kadayanallur Street, 069184, Singapore

Zheng Zhi Wen Ji Pig's Organ Soup


In addition to pork offal, the menu includes marinated pork trotter, kway chap, and bak kut teh. However, the standout dish is the noodle soup with pork liver and kidney, where the offal is perfectly cooked and the broth exudes rich herbal aromas.

Clementi 448 Food Centre, #01-26, 448 Clementi Ave 3, 120448, Singapore
