Candlenut Collage

Boasting high ceilings, a bigger space and decked out in Peranakan-inspired tiles and furnishings, one-Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant Candlenut offers an Omakase menu—which they cheekily call ‘Ahmakase’.

The restaurant has a different, somewhat contemporary approach towards Peranakan cuisine, delving away from traditional methods.

Boasting a wider array of dishes (ranging between S$20 – S$30 each), we got to try a good many dishes, with our favourites being the Blue Swimmer Crab Curry, Turmeric, Galangal, Kaffir Lime Leaf and Westholme Wagyu Beef Rib Rendang, Serunding, Turmeric Leaf.

2018 Michelin Guide Singapore – The Best Restaurants In Singapore

Singapore Michelin 2018

The Michelin Guide Singapore has just announced the list of restaurants who have been awarded the Michelin star(s). This is news that has gotten everyone on the edge of their seats—especially with the release of the Bib Gourmand Award winners for 2018 just last week—and we bet that you are just as excited to know the results as we are.

One thing that we do know is that the culinary kings of fine-dining, 2 Michelin starred,  Restaurant André and 3 Michelin starred, Joël Robuchon Restaurant is definitely not up to win the titles again given both their restaurants’ closure in early 2018. Which begs us to wonder from the edge of our seats—will there be any that can take their place?

With today’s announcement, more Singapore names will join the coveted list of Michelin-star recipients. And whether you agree with this list or not, all eyes will be on them from here on.

Here, we share the results of 2018 Michelin Guide Singapore.
