Michelin Guide Singapore: Five Restaurants We Rate

Whether you love it or loathe it, Michelin Guide’s annual sprinkling of stars is always a lively conversation starter amongst the fooderati.

While here at LUXE we're steered by the recommendations of our in-the-know resident editors rather than Michelin (or other gongs), there’s always an overlap between the eateries they rate as much as we do. Now into its third year, Michelin Guide Singapore announced its latest constellation of eateries in July: here are five Singapore Michy-starred restaurants that make the LUXE cut too.   



Braci


Awarded one star for the second year running, this divine 20-seat shophouse with a coppery open kitchen is a sure-fire winner. Helmed by Beppe de Vito, the food is fresh, creative, contempo Italian served as dégustation or à la carte. Don't miss aperitivo on the rooftop bar, best timed with sunset. braci.sg


Nouri


Progressive pan-handler Ivan Brehm struck out on his own in 2017 by opening his slick yet homely dining room, and he’s been rewarded with a Michy star as a result. Expect complex plates which draw on Brehm's eclectic Euro-Brazilian-Mid-East heritage and globetrotting – he'll happily share the story behind each dish and ingredient. The Teishoku-style lunch menu (where dishes are all served at once) makes for quick n' easy fine-food sampling. nouri.com.sg


Burnt Ends


Although new to Michelin in 2018, this achingly hip, uber-mod Aussie BBQ joint with just 18 counter seats has been smoking, slow roasting and grilling the finest hunks of meat into submission for 5 years. No res unless you’re willing to eat early, Potato Head Folk is but a charcoal toss away… put your name on the list and wait it out with one of their stellar rum tipples. burntends.com.sg


Candlenut


The world's first Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant repping Malcolm Lee's elevated take on trad Baba-Nyonya cuisine is a must for foodies and spice fiends alike. Sample his punchy taste-tinglers amid an elegant, modish dining room in the COMO Dempsey compound. comodempsey.sg


Odette


One of only 4 restaurants to win 2 stars is Julien Royer’s study of elegance at The National Gallery. Creamy 1930s Hollywood-esque interiors backdrop the maestro’s contemporary take on classical French cuisine, made with top-notch ingreds but natch. Set courses only, between 4 and 8 depending on the time and day. Book at least 2 months ahead to guarantee a table. odetterestaurant.sg
