12 New Hawker Food Entrants For Michelin Food Guide Singapore’s Bib Gourmand 2019

What is Singapore without its street food? Unlike most other parts of the world, the Little Red Dot reveres its street cuisine, so much to the point that they’ve been awarded with the Michelin Bib Gourmand.

To be awarded with the Michelin Bib Gourmand, you’d need to meet the prerequisite of being a food joint with entries that cost under S$45. And in a place like Singapore, that bar makes for a head-scratchingly hard time to pick out a potential winner, simply because there are way too many options for popular affordable bites across the island.

In any case, Michelin Guide Singapore has announced their latest lineup of Bib Gourmand recipients in 2019. There are 58 in total (8 more than last year), including 12 newcomers – majority of which are street and hawker food – having been awarded with it.

The new Michelin Bib Gourmand recipients are:

It’s quite the list of new Michelin Bib Gourmand entries. No doubt, some Singaporeans reading this might recognise some of these restaurants and hawker centres near their homes. Award or not, local Singaporean street food is still arguably the lifeblood of this nation.
