Earlier today, Taipei’s first-ever Michelin Guide was unveiled, and saw 20 of the city’s finest restaurants bagging stars. Celebrated chef Andre Chiang’s Raw was among those that received one star, despite his request for his restaurant to be excluded from the guide.

The Guide’s release comes ahead of the highly awaited Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants ceremony, to be held in Macau on 27 March. Just yesterday, it was announced that Manila’s Toyo Eatery has been bestowed with the Miele One To Watch Award. We can’t wait to see who the other award recipients are, and which restaurants make the top 50 list. Now that Chiang’s now-defunct Restaurant Andre will no longer take the number two spot (which it occupied last year), we’re excited to see who will move up on the list.

Closer to home, foodies here have much to look forward to as well. At least 10 new restaurants have popped up over the past weeks, with interesting concepts and cuisines ranging from modern Chinese food to French fare and Taiwanese zichar grub. Read on for the new restaurants in Singapore you need to visit this month.
