Singapore's multicultural character extends beautifully to its world-renowned food scene.

Their passion injects fresh energy and creativity into the scene, pushing boundaries and ensuring Singapore remains a leader in culinary innovation. While their individual styles are distinct, these young chefs share a common vision to collectively elevate Singapore's reputation as a global gourmet paradise for discerning food lovers worldwide.”

Meta is Promoted to Two MICHELIN Stars

Chef Sun Kim hails from Korea's Busan, and his refined modern cooking combines Korean traditions and bold flavours with contemporary minimalist aesthetics. The dining room shares the same space as the kitchen, for a chef's table feel. The steamed Jeju abalone with gochujang seaweed risotto is a hit, with its contrasting textures – the tender mollusc, creamy rice and crunchy lily bulbs. The seafood-heavy single set menu will also appeal to meat lovers.

4 Restaurants are Newly Awarded with One MICHELIN Star

Araya is helmed by Chilean chefs Araya and Guerrero, who worked together at a restaurant in China. Their ingenious creations are deeply influenced by Araya's time in Spain and Japan, showcasing an eclectic mix of Chilean and Japanese produce, all woven together with a South Pacific theme.

Chaleur is awarded one MICHELIN Star for its 10-course dinner menu that fully expresses executive chef Masahiko Kawano’s culinary vision. After helming some prestigious kitchens in Singapore, Japanese chef Kawano curates a menu that showcases a juxtaposition of French and Japanese ingredients, further elevated by his mastery of solid French techniques. Painstakingly tweaking the consistency of his duck consommé daily, he shows his attention to detail is second to none.

Matera is a stone's throw away from many tourist attractions in Singapore. The dining concept by experienced German chef Bjoern Alexander pushes the boundaries of Italian cooking with its bold Asian influences. Diners can enjoy watching the chefs work their magic in the open kitchen, all while taking in breathtaking views of Marina Bay Sands and the Esplanade. The signature whole red prawn features the perfectly smoked, juicy crustacean with a crispy prawn toast on the side to add contrasting textures.

Pangium offers diners a serene view of the lush green garden. Singaporean chef-owner Malcolm Lee's exquisite tasting menu takes guests on a journey to explore the untapped potential of Straits cuisine. Named after the pangium plant, which produces the buah keluak seed, a key ingredient in Peranakan cooking, Pangium pays homage to family recipes passed down through generations, with carefully crafted dishes that taste exceptional.

Second MICHELIN Green Star in Singapore Awarded to Fiz

Within the MICHELIN Guide restaurant selection, the MICHELIN Green Star highlights establishments at the forefront of the industry for their sustainable practices and dining experiences that combine culinary excellence with outstanding eco-friendly commitments.

Joining Seroja, the city-state’s first MICHELIN Green Star recipient, the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2024 welcomes modern Malay restaurant, Fiz (MICHELIN Selected) to the list. Chef-owner Hafizzul Hashim and team offers a set menu inspired by the chef's childhood memories in Malaysia and is designed to give diners a deeper understanding of Malaysian flavors, incorporating a variety of Malaysian spices and ingredients.

MICHELIN Guide Sommelier Award

The 2024 MICHELIN Guide Sommelier Award recognises the skills, knowledge, and passion of talented sommeliers of the industry. This year, the Sommelier Award is given to Tomas Tapia from newly awarded one MICHELIN Starred restaurant Araya.

MICHELIN Guide Young Chef Award

Presented by Blancpain, the 2024 MICHELIN Guide Young Chef Award recognises a young chef working in a restaurant of the selection, and whose exceptional talent and great potential have impressed the inspectors. This year’s award is given to Seth Lai from MICHELIN Selected restaurant, Ce Soir.

Chef Seth's childhood in the idyllic Malaysian countryside nurtured a profound respect for fresh, seasonal ingredients. Despite his young age of 30, chef Seth’s lauded tenures at Singapore's prestigious establishments, including 28 Wilkie and Iggy's Cuisine, cemented his reputation as a rising culinary star. At the helm of Ce Soir, chef Seth continues to create evocative, boundary-transcending dishes that achieve a harmonious balance between bold flavours and refined simplicity.

23 Other New Establishments Join the MICHELIN Selection

23 other new locations also join the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2024 selection as MICHELIN Selected establishments, bringing the total number to 151.

Popular Singaporean dishes steadily shines in the new selected establishments, such as Food Street Fried Kway Teow Mee, Guan Kee Fried Carrot Cake, Maxwell Fuzhou Oyster Cake, Zheng Zhi Wen Ji Pig's Organ Soup, and more.

Some interesting newly selected restaurants include: Tambi, a collaborative effort by chef-owners Sun Kim, of newly promoted two MICHELIN Starred Meta, and Mano Thevar, who helms two MICHELIN Starred Thevar, an innovative restaurant featuring the rare mix of Korean and Indian food. The menu is short but sweet, with creative combinations such as oxtail bone marrow murtabak with kimchi, and a fusion take on Korean cold spicy noodles known as "Tambi's Bibimmyeon". Path presents Asian fare underpinned by classic French techniques, such as its mildly hot crabmeat and tofu spread – a perfect accompaniment for the bread baked in the charcoal oven, or the pork trotter wrapped in caul fat doused in a sauce inspired by the Chinese classic of braised pork with pickled mustard greens. Podi & Poriyal - a vegetarian joint that prides itself on the spicy ground lentil condiment known as podi, and sautéed vegetables, or poriyal. Replicating South Indian grandmas' cooking, the menu covers all plant-based dietary desires, with gluten-free, allium-free and vegan options.
