It’s one of the most exciting nights in Singapore’s culinary scene and after two years, the Michelin Guide 2022 has returned with a physical event for the sixth edition of its annual star revelation.
Fittingly, this year’s ceremony took place on Tuesday night (Jul 12) at Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay Sands. The last physical event for the guide’s release was in 2019 at Capella Singapore. For 2020, the star revelation was cancelled due to restaurants’ prolonged COVID-19 closures and in 2021, the guide was revealed online via a livestream.
This year, 52 restaurants were awarded their stars, up from 49 last year. Seven new restaurants made it onto the one-star list. These included Burnt Ends (which relocated to Dempsey in December last year), Raffles Hotel’s La Dame de Pic, Japanese restaurant Hamamoto and French-Japanese restaurant Reve.
Also gaining their first one-star were gastro-botanical restaurant Euphoria, helmed by chef Jason Tan (formerly of Corner House fame), and modern Korean restaurant Nae:um, helmed by chef Louis Han. Han was also awarded the Young Chef Award for 2022.
Located at Gardens by the Bay, Marguerite, led by chef-owner Michael Wilson, also got its first star.
