MICHELIN Guide Singapore awards three restaurants with three MICHELIN stars; six with two MICHELIN stars, and 42 with one MICHELIN stars, for a total of 51 Michelin-starred eateries in the Lion City in its newly announced 2024 edition.

The latest MICHELIN Guide Singapore was unveiled earlier this week, the annual food guide bestowing restaurants across the Lion City with its stars. In total, 51 establishments were awarded – three with three MICHELIN stars, six with two MICHELIN stars, with the rest earning one star – via an announcement on the MICHELIN Guide’s official website, the first time it has released an edition without pomp or ceremony.

The biggest winner in MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2024 was contemporary French-Asian restaurant Meta (main picture), which was promoted to two MICHELIN stars. Four new restaurants joined the one star list this year: modern South American restaurant Araya, innovative French-Japanese eatery Chaleur, contemporary Italian Matera, and Chef Malcolm Lee of Candlenut fame’s other Peranakan concept Pangium at the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

The latest edition also saw the largest shake up since its inaugural guide was first introduced in 2016. Shockingly celebrity chef Tetsuya Wakuda’s contemporary fine dining restaurant Waku Ghin over at Marina Bay Sands lost one of its stars, dropping to just one star.

Then there are the restaurants that fell out of the list altogether. Among them are La Dame de Pic by Ann Sophie Pic at Raffles Hotel Singapore, Table65 at Resorts World Sentosa, and Braci, all of which have officially closed earlier this year (although Braci is said to be looking for a new location). Also losing their stars are Cure, Beni, Putien at Kitchener Road, as well as Rêve, the latter of which only just got its first star in last year’s guide.

Earning the accolades just eight months after opening, the establishment is led by Chef-Partners Francisco Araya and Fernanda Guerrero who both hail from Chile.

Chef Francisco Araya of Araya says its MICHELIN star just eight months into opening is extremely encouraging. “We are proud to pave the way for a lesser known cuisine and introduce it to the rest of the world, especially after the recognition from MICHELIN Guide! It’s food that is very close to mine and Fernanda’s hearts, and we hope that more people get to experience it,” shared Chef Francisco.

MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2024 also awarded modern Southeast Asian restaurant Fiz with a Green star, which joins Seroja on that vaunted list.

In an earlier announcement, MICHELIN welcomed 11 newly awarded Bib Gourmand establishments. Nine of the new entries are brand new additions to the Guide, while two – hawker stalls Jalan Sultan Prawn Mee and Ru Ji Kitchen – were moved from the MICHELIN Selected category.

Also unveiled were the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2024 Young Chef Award, which was won by Seth Lai from MICHELIN Selected restaurant Ce Soir, while the Service Award and Sommelier Award went to Lufianti Susetyo from MICHELIN Selected Buko Nero and Tomas Tapia of one MICHELIN starred Araya respectively.
