[dropcap size=small]T[/dropcap]he second iteration of the Michelin Guide Singapore may have been more closely watched than the first – here’s where movements up and down the vaunted list tell the tale of a hard year’s work for many a restaurant.
This year sees a total of 38 recipients – 30 1-star, seven 2-star and a single 3-star. There was no movement at the apex – Joel Robuchon Restaurant at Resorts World Sentosa remained the only 3-starred establishment in Singapore. Waku Ghin at Marina Bay Sands picked up one more to go with its 2016 1-star, and joined an otherwise undisturbed roster of 2-star restaurants.
The most interesting developments were the 11 new restaurants awarded one star, with both Asian and Western-centric cuisines represented. This swelled the count to a total of 30, from last year’s 22. The absence of restaurants Terra and Forest in this year’s list, together with Waku Ghin’s additional star, accounts for the difference.
The live updates have concluded.
