Singapore Michelin Guide 2016 aka "Err...That Restaurant Got A Star?"

If you thought the Bib Gourmand awards had a few funny names in it...well, wait til you see the full Michelin star list. The guide has always had its bashers and critics but it's still the most iconic and coveted rating for restaurants. So to see this list for Singapore...

I think Lennardy put it well here in his post:

Yes, many of these restaurants deserve the star(s). Seven out of 10 of my predictions came true, and those are crowd favourites anyone can come up with. But as Lennardy put it, "there are some very questionable restaurants on the list."

3 Michelin stars 

Joël Robuchon Restaurant (Resorts World Sentosa)

2 Michelin stars

Restaurant Andre (Bukit Pasoh Road)
L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon (Resorts World Sentosa)
Les Amis (Shaw Centre)
Odette (National Gallery Singapore)
Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro (Mandarin Orchard Singapore)
Shoukouwa (One Fullerton)

1 Michelin star

Alma by Juan Amador (Goodwood Park Hotel)
The Kitchen at Bacchanalia (Hong Kong Street)
Beni (Mandarin Gallery)
Candlenut (New Bridge Road)
Corner House (Botanic Gardens)
Crystal Jade Golden Palace (Paragon Shopping Centre)
CUT (Marina Bay Sands)
Forest (Resorts World Sentosa)
Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles (Crawford Lane)
HK Soya Sauce Chicken Rice Noodles (Chinatown Food Complex)
JAAN (Swissotel the Stamford)
Lei Garden (CHIJMES)
OSIA (Resorts World Sentosa)
Putien Restaurant (Kitchener Road)
Rhubarb Le Restaurant (Duxton Hill)
Shinji by Kanesaka (Raffles Hotel)
Shinji by Kanesaka (St Regis Hotel)
Summer Pavilion (Ritz-Carlton, The Millenia Singapore)
Sushi Ichi (Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel)
Terra Tokyo-Italian (Tras Street)
The Song of India (Scotts Road)
Waku Ghin (Marina Bay Sands)

I don't know. I'm naive. Maybe when they get more local reviewers and do not take sponsorships (especially those that may involve a conflict of interest), we can have a more impartial list. And do it before all credibility is lost. Wait, oh, it's too late?

The beef fillet Rossini style came shielded in this dramatic glass dome

Meanwhile, I'll go back to binge-watching Suits and wondering what the **** stormtroopers are doing in the Maldives ocean. Noooooooo!!! This is a much bigger travesty!
