The Michelin Guide Singapore has just announced the list of restaurants who have been awarded the Michelin star(s). This news is much anticipated and we are sure you are as stoked and curious as we are.
When the Michelin Guide Singapore released its Bib Gourmand Awards 2016 last week, it received mixed comments. While some are happy that our hardworking local hawker masters are finally getting the recognition that they deserve, many others lamented at the fact that the list hardly represents the best hawker stalls in Singapore.
With today’s announcement, more Singapore names will join the coveted list. And whether you agree with this list or not, the Michelin-starred restaurants in Singapore will have attention all on them, and see more patrons in the next few months.

Little Bao – a modern Chinese diner in Hong Kong – shot to fame with its signature mini sliders, sharing plates and cocktails since its opening in Hong Kong three years ago.
Chef and owner May Chow is now bringing Little Bao to Bangkok – its first overseas outpost. Like the original Little Bao in Hong Kong, the new Little Bao in Bangkok follows the same formula by dishing out familiar and sexy renditions of our Asian favourites over the counter and in many unpredictable and refreshing manners.
Our love for liu sha will never die. The delectable rich ingredient is more than just a passing trend. It has stolen the hearts of generations across Singapore and is present in practically every menu everywhere.
We have seen it buns, crabs, croissants, doughnuts, fries, pizzas, waffles and whatnot. But have you ever had the brined creamy golden lava in a roti prata?
Yes, your eyes are not tricking you. If you have yet to hear, our beloved glorious roti prata has taken on new form at Big Street Singapore and has successfully evolved into an addictive Prata Bomb stuffed with molten salted egg custard.
If you want to get fat, go to London. The British city has cuisines from all over the world, and the sheer number of options is mind-boggling to say the least.

Hidden in the basement of Tokyo’s Ginza Tiffany Building is Seryna, one of the Best Dining Destinations in Japan for Premium Kobe Beef Shabu Shabu.
The reputable establishment has been serving the finest gourmet to affluent guests since more than half a century ago, and today, it remains a highly sought-after restaurant visited by epicureans from all walks of life.
While a scrumptious meal at Seryna could easily rake up to at least over a hundred dollars per patron, its unrivalled Kobe Beef is very much worth the hefty price tag. Reservations are highly recommended as the lavish Japanese restaurant is typically packed with business associates, indulgent foodies and even celebrities alike on weekdays!
This August sees Singapore turning 51 years old, Charlie Puth performing in Singapore for just a night, and a series of performances taking place in conjunction with Singapore International Festival of Arts.
Get your calendar ready, because we are just about to share with you several highlights this August that you would be interested in.
From the annual Durian Festival, Universal Studios Singapore’s Soak Out Water Party to the last leg of The Great Singapore Sale, here are 7 Exciting Events That Are Taking Place in Singapore This August 2016.
All ground-breaking food trends will definitely have the whole world trying to out-do each other with renditions to call their own. And in Singapore in particular, we have a multitude of cuisines and foods to satisfy all sorts of cravings – a lot of these are derived from inspirations overseas, of course. Local restaurants and cafes often look to establishments overseas – mostly in the region – for trends to emulate and to pioneer in Singapore.
However, some cafes and restaurants in Singapore choose to blatantly copy an entire recipe or idea and brand them as their own. This can be quite questionable because it is almost like plagiarism. Getting inspirations is one; wholesale copying and calling ideas their own is another.
While we are all for bringing the best ideas to Singapore, it is important to remember the importance of being on the forefront of trends. Recreating a dish is not sustainable in the long run and F&B operators shouldn’t always be in a rat race to catch up and “copy” the next trend to bring in crowd; innovating is the way to go, and only that will instil faith in consumers in the long run.
Here are 10 Food Copycats in Singapore and Where They Were Originally From. While some are well-executed, some are just a far cry from the originals.
Senate Coffee is a one-month-old cosy dining establishment in Great Eastern Centre that specialises in artisanal coffees and nutritious grain bowls. The cafe is actually by the same people behind The Populus Coffee & Food Co. and now-defunct Department of Caffeine.
