Michelin Guide releases 2019 Bib Gourmand results

There are eight more awardees compared to last year, and 12 new eateries on the list.

The Michelin guide announcements are a little later this year (possibly due to the World’s 50 Best awards being held in Singapore), but it’s finally coming.

Ahead of the actual awards reveal on Sept 17, they’ve announced the Bib Gourmand awards, which are doled out by the guide’s inspectors for restaurants and eateries that “offer diners good value for money”, where food is priced at a maximum of $45. Since entering the Singporean market, a large number of the Bib Gourmand awards have been given to hawkers and casual spots.

For 2019, 58 F&B establishments have been awards, with 12 new spots entering the list. Four restaurants have also been removed: modern zichar restaurant New Ubin Seafood; Rolina Traditional Hainanese Curry Puff at Tanjong Pagar Food Centre; and wildly popular nasi lemak restaurant The Coconut Club.

The lattermost closed, and re-opened in a different location just this year, which might account for them dropping from the list; while New Ubin — with foie gras and carabinero prawns spotted on its menu — might have overshot the $45-per-pax maximum on Bib Gourmand entries.

New entrant this year include side projects from Michelin-starred establishments: Shisen Haten’s fast-casual offshoot Chen’s Mapo Tofu, as well as Chef Kang’s Noodle House, which offers wonton mee by, well, chef Kang.

There are also new hawkers on the list — Bedok Chwee Keuh at Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre, and To-Ricos Guo Shi, more popularly known as the kway chap store from Blanco Court.
