Ready to chow down at Singapore’s Michelin Guide Street Food Festival?
THE MICHELIN GUIDE Street Food Festival is returning to Singapore this April and foodies from far and wide are already pulling out their adult bibs from the closet and shining up their dedicated tasting spoons.
To make sought-after Michelin-starred dishes more accessible to those who might otherwise never get to sample such international tastes, the organizers have brought together 15 establishments recognized in the 2017 Michelin Guide.
The Michelin Guide faced some hardship in 2017 as French Chef Jérôme Brochot from Le France, a hotel restaurant in the small town of Montceau-Les-Mines, gave back the world’s most coveted accolade, a Michelin Star, after he conceded that pressure to maintain the high standard was too costly.
Another French chef, Sébastien Bras, recently gave back his three stars after admitting that the pressure of knowing a Michelin judge could come at any moment became too much for him.
Despite these setbacks, The Michelin Guide has expanded its presence across Asia. Last year, the guide platform released its eponymous restaurant guide for Bangkok. Thailand’s capital joined Hong Kong, Osaka, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo on the list of Asian cities with Michelin stars.
Now with Singapore’s culinary event forthcoming across the city, The Michelin Guide hopes to expand its portfolio even further.
The event promises to be a multi-cultural showcase from Singapore’s best street food and Michelin-starred restaurants. New to the line-up this year from local hawker favorites is the renowned Man Man Unagi restaurant with their signature Una-Don.
Hungry-pups can also feast on Joël Robuchon Restaurant dessert favorites and Song of India’s perfectly baked naans and butter chicken. Each of the sumptuous dishes at the three-day event are on offer from just US$3 per plate.
“Food is the fabric of Singapore’s culture and a part of the country’s national identity. It is well-loved around the world for its rich multi-ethnic influences and The Michelin Guide Street Food Festival is the perfect way to celebrate that,” Michelin Guide Singapore wrote in a blog post.
Three sessions will be held starting March 30, starting at 6pm. Tickets are sold out for the Saturday sessions, but foodies can go along to the Sunday sessions, also being held at the same time, to sample the last supper of the Easter weekend.
