The results of the 2021 Singapore Michelin Star Guide, which celebrates its 5th anniversary, are in. They were announced by Chan Hock Sen, Country Director of Michelin Singapore together with host Nikki Muller during a virtual public live stream today (Sept 1) — the first time the ceremony has been taken online — on Michelin Guide Singapore’s official Facebook page as well as Michelin Guide Asia’s official Youtube page.
A total of 49 restaurants have made the cut this year, up from 44 in 2019. Odette and Les Amis were both awarded three Michelin stars yet again, with Zen helmed by chef Tristin Farmer joining the coveted echelon after getting two stars in 2019. Jaan by Kirk Westaway has also been promoted to join the ranks of the two Michelin-starred restaurants, which include Saint Pierre, Shisen Hanten, Shoukouwa, and Waku Ghin.
Five restaurants have been promoted and seven have been newly awarded one Michelin star. This year, the guide has also introduced a new Young Chef Award, which goes to Mark Tai, head chef of Cloudstreet, formerly of Cheek by Jowl.
