Michelin Guide Singapore 2022: Restaurants and Hawker Stalls With Michelin Stars

Emma Lam
Last updated Aug 12, 2022

Everyone knows that eating is a Singaporean’s national pastime. So what better way to bond with friends and family over heartwarming meals at the best Michelin Star restaurants and hawker stalls in Singapore.

Calling all foodies! The new restaurant rosters for Michelin Guide Singapore 2022 and Michelin Bib Gourmand Singapore 2022 were recently released, alongside prospective new additions to look forward to. Collectively, there are over 119 star-studded restaurants and hawkers recognised as the top in their cuisine categories, celebrated by Singaporeans all around.

With regards to the Michelin Guide, inspectors carefully considered and reviewed the quality of food over five criteria:

  • Ingredient quality used
  • Mastery of cooking techniques and flavours
  • Influence of chef’s personality on cuisine
  • Value for money
  • Quality consistency over time and menu

Other factors like location, interior design, staff service and facilities are not accounted for.

Meanwhile, the Michelin Bib Gourmand is slightly different in that it deviates from the prestigious ‘fine dining’ concept. On the contrary, this award uplifts and celebrates the cooking craft of our local hawkers that have left an indelible mark on Singapore’s culinary culture.

Now that we know the differences, let’s cut to the chase and explore some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants we can find on our sunny island.

Contemporary Cuisine

Odette — French Contemporary (3⭐)

Named after his grandmother, the eponymous Odette is a class act in the field of fine dining. Specialising in French contemporary cuisine, chef Julien Royer pays tribute to his grandmother’s remarkable cooking through his own rendition of her dishes. 

Apart from crafting signature French dishes, his years in Asia have had a profound influence on his culinary style. By infusing traditional French flavours with layers of Asian elements, the final product is a beautiful delicious blend of both cultures’ palates.

When paired with exquisite wines, the fantastical aromas and flavours of Odette’s French contemporary cuisine are further brought to life.

Note: Bookings are made at least one month in advance. 

Address1 St Andrew’s Road, #01-04 National Gallery, Singapore 178957
Opening hoursTues to Sat: 12pm to 1.15pm, 6.30pm to 8.15pm

Zén — Swedish Contemporary (3⭐)

Next up in the same realm of contemporary dishes, Zén takes the spotlight as the titular protégé of the only three Michelin-starred restaurant in Sweden, Frantzén. 

Given Singaporeans’ picky sensibilities when it comes to quality, flavour and pricing, Nordic fine dining might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But what helped Zén’s debut in Singapore succeed where other fancy restaurants have failed is them understanding the importance of catering to the local palate. 

While their foundation lies in Swedish cuisine, they have adapted their culinary DNA to the Singaporean taste. By finding the sweet spot between salty and acidity European tastes and Asian’s penchant for all things umami and savoury, Zén has marinated the best of both worlds together into a truly amazing gastronomical affair.

The final result is a lovechild of a Japanese-inspired, modern French-Nordic fare. The familiarity of Japanese touches combined with European dishes will confuse some (in a good way) but tantalise your tastebuds all the same. You’ll just have to pay their quaint Bukit Pasoh house a visit and decide on a verdict yourself.

Note: Bookings are made at least one month in advance.

Waku Ghin — Japanese Contemporary (2⭐)

Take a walk through any hawker centre, food court, mall eatery, and even supermarket and you’ll ostensibly see how much Singaporeans adore Japanese food (myself included). In this critically acclaimed Japanese fine dining restaurant, you’ll soon discover why it sits comfortably at its two Michelin star tier.

Helmed by award-winning Japanese-Australian chef Tetsuya Wakuda, Waku Ghin demonstrates culinary excellence through elite craftsmanship and stellar service.

Sit yourself at the Chef’s Table where you’ll be taken on a bespoke dining trip through an exquisite multi-layered feast showcasing the best seasons and regions Japan has to offer. This Omakase Special Menu is chock full of seasonal specials, the freshest seafood and premium grade beef, of course! 

Once done, their bar welcomes you to cleanse your palate with some handcrafted Japanese-style cocktails along with quality wine and sake choices including brews like Isojiman and Masuizumi that are unique to Waku Ghin only. 

Note: Only walk-ins are accepted for the bar. Smart casual attire is required.

28@Wilkie — Italian Contemporary (1⭐)

Elegant, classy, and definitely delicious — these are just a few descriptors upon first impressions of the one Michelin-starred contemporary restaurant, 28 Wilkie. Having previously worked at other Michelin notables like Iggy’s and Esora, Chef de Cuisine Seth Lai’s wealth of experience in European fine dining is made apparent through his technical mastery and cuisine innovation. 

Using only premium seasonal ingredients (especially from Japan), we once again meet the crossroads of European delicacies and Japanese flavours as Chef Seth offers an elevated perspective of familiar scents with nouveau tastes.

According to their Summer Menu, patrons can expect French classics like foie gras and caviar along with Japanese seafood indulgences such as Maguro tuna and Shima Aji striped fish. Not forgetting, Iberico pork and Tochigi Wagyu beef are available too. Pair these delectable offerings with classic wine options for the ultimate ‘flavour town’. Full courses are priced at S$248 while vegetarian course alternatives are priced at S$208. Wines are sold separately.

💡 Fun fact: 28 Wilkie is Singapore’s first caviar-influenced restaurant.

Nae:um — Korean Contemporary (1⭐)

Meaning ‘sound’ in English, Nae:um is among the new additions to the Michelin-starred list as a refreshing Korean Contemporary influence in Singapore’s culinary scene. 

What sets this restaurant apart from the others is its fine dining concept introduced as episodic menus. From 16 March until the end of summer 2022, Nae:um is serving Episode 3: Seaside Dreams (Dinner Menu). In this current lineup, diners can get a whiff of the seaside breeze through seafood delights like Duckgalbi, Gyeojache (tuna, cuttlefish, avocado), Gui (coral trout, canola blossom leak), Samhab (pluma, octopus, kimchi) and much more.

Moreover, this 10-course meal is reasonably priced at S$188++ (excluding add-ons) with options for alcohol pairing (full: S$158 / half: S$98) and non-alcohol pairing (S$78). So if you’re a major fan of Korean dishes — especially their seafood — you should definitely consider trying out their full course before their seasonal summer menu concludes.

Note: Their Episode 2: Mountain Lodge six-course menu (S$168++) is available for lunch on Saturdays only.

Innovative Cuisine

Cloudstreet (2⭐)

Ready for a decadent meal that’ll leave your head in the clouds? Dig into luxurious 6-course and 8-course menus offered by Cloudstreet. As a counterpart to Sri Lankan restaurant Kotuwa and wine bar Foolwine, this two Michelin-starred restaurant is a cut above the rest. 

With a focus in progressive gastronomy, Chef Rishi Naleendra specially curated menus consisting of multi-cultural cuisine, each flavour influencing the next. At present, patrons can expect offerings like Organic-aged Duck and Beeswax-aged Pigeon together with sweet, sugary treats like Hazelnut Chantilly, Pomegranate and Cardamom Pate de Fruit and more. 

Dining period Price Availability
Lunch 8-course menu (S$358++) Tues to Sat
Dinner 6-course menu (S$228++) Fri only

Esora (1⭐)

Engage in a magical dining experience at Esora with their unique ‘kappo-style’ fine dining approach. ‘Kappo’ in Japanese translates to ‘cut and cook’, an all-encompassing term referring to less formal cuisine with the chef preparing and cooking the food in front of diners in an Omakase fashion.

Situated in a humble heritage shophouse on Mohamad Saltan Road, Head Chef Takeshi Araki and Chef de Cuisine Noboru Shimohigashi’s attention to detail will surely leave diners wanting more.

Dishes served include tataki-style grilled Kinmedai (golden eye snapper) over claypot (donabe) rice, Hakusai-stuffed (napa cabbage) chicken wing, and Hassun platter just to name a few. Complimented by the bright, soft hues of Japanese washi paper and a generous skylight overhead, the intimate dining setting elevates the heartfelt notes of each dish served.

Not to mention, no authentic Japanese dining is complete without a Tea Tasting Session, where guests are treated to a dedicated tea-pairing programme. A good tea brew is truly the perfect complement to the refined Japanese palate.

Note: Bookings are made at least one month in advance.

Euphoria (1⭐)

Restaurant Euphoria is defying norms and breaking culinary boundaries through Chef Jason Tan’s (read: Mr Onion) rendition of original Gastro-Botanica cuisine. In this rendition, his dishes are carefully sourced and crafted with premium ingredients where vegetables, tubers, herbs, spices, and fruits are heavily used as garnishing to evoke each dish’s botanical flair.

Moreover, their iconic base sauces, Gastro-Botanica Essences – La Symphonie de Legumes, are both a homage and departure from the foundational ‘mother sauces’ of French haute cuisine. 

As a preview, their 4-course (Joy of Euphoria) and 6-course (Voyage of Euphoria) lunch menus comprise Amuse Bouche, Shima Aji, Bomba Fermented Rice, Toothfish, Pork Jowl, and others. Meanwhile, their 6-course (Secret Garden of Euphoria) and 8-course (Journey of Euphoria) dinner menus go a step further by incorporating other classics like Wagyu Beef Cheek, Blue Cod “Crispy Scales”, 35-Layers Carrot “Tart” and more. 

Do also look out for Chef Jason’s signature dish — the Cévennes onion — endearingly coined as “My Favourite Vegetable”. 

Dining period Price
Lunch 4-course menu (S$158++)
Alcoholic pairing (S$88++)
6-course menu (S$208++)
Alcoholic pairing (S$108++)

Putien Restaurant — Fujian (1⭐)

Hailing from its namesake city of Putian, Putien Restaurant is another Chinese Fujian classic that’s beloved by many Singaporeans. Its humble beginnings stem from Heng Hwa cuisines in 2000 before evolving into the Fujian delicacies it serves today.

Since Putian is a coastal suburb located southeast of Fujian, it’s no surprise that Putien’s menu consists of fresh seafood dishes accompanied by seasonal ingredients used all year round. August to October marks eel season, thus diners can anticipate an abundance of eel dish variations to chomp down on.

Feel yourself salivating yet? Satisfy your Chinese seafood cravings with a steaming hot bowl of Fujian Red Mushroom Seafood Lor Mee, ‘100-Second’ Stewed Yellow Croaker, Bian Rou Soup, Stir-Fried Chilli Clams and many more.

For beef noodle lovers, Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodle features dry or soup noodles accompanied by either sliced beef, beef balls, beef stomach or tendon combinations priced between S$5 to S$8. Those that prefer starchy, viscous dark sauce and salty, savoury notes will the dry version as it comes with peanuts and kiam chye (salted vegetables) too.

Lixin Teochew Fishball Noodles


Source: TripAdvisor

Alternatively, Lixin Teochew Fishball Noodles has somewhat become a household name for Singaporeans. Sourcing their handmade fishballs from their central location, their reputation precedes themselves with multiple stalls or standalone shops opened islandwide.

In particular, their Toa Payoh Lorong 7 stall is arguably cheaper, with dry or soup noodle options for as low as S$3.50. Meanwhile, their food court counterparts are pricier, offering bowls from S$5 onwards. Nevertheless, if you’re craving some fishball meepok noodles, definitely consider giving the Toa Payoh stall a try.

Address: 22 Lorong 7 Toa Payoh, #01-20 Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre, Singapore 310019
Opening hours: 7am to 1pm (Thurs to Sun)

💡 Pro-tip: Look out for any Fave or ShopBack QR codes attached at the stall fronts to reap cashback rebates with your food purchases! Some of them might even accept CDC voucher payments.
