The Michelin inspectors have eaten their way across the island in their quest to shortlist the best eateries and restaurants in Singapore. First up, the guide has released a list of 34 restaurants and street food stalls that have made the cut for the Bib Gourmand award — a distinction that recognises eateries offering a high-quality menu at a reasonable price. For Singapore, this price has been pegged at a maximum of S$45 per head. This inaugural list for Singapore includes 17 the most queue-worthy hawker joints.
