12 new names added to the 2021 Bib Gourmand list for Michelin Guide Singapore

The Michelin Guide Singpapore has unveiled its 2021 Bib Gourmand list, this time three weeks earlier than the official broadcast of starred restaurants.

For the uninitiated, the Bib Gourmand is a slate of establishments — restaurants and hawker stalls included — nominated by Michelin inspectors that offer diners very good value for money, with a complete and high-quality menu priced at a maximum of S$45.

This year, the Michelin Guide welcomes 12 establishments to the roundup, bringing the total number of venues up to 69. It also marks the fifth edition of the Bib Gourmand selection, with the exception of last year’s hiatus due to the long period of closure of restaurants during the two-month circuit breaker.

Notable new additions include Kotuwa — a Sri Lankan restaurant by chef Rishi Naleendra of Cloudstreet and Cheek Bistro fame — as well as Da Shi Jia, a CBD favourite serving up humble but delicious bowl of prawn noodles.

The list also welcomed back perennial favourites like Sik Bao Sin and Eminent Frog Porridge & Seafood, both located in the Geylang neighbourhood of Singapore. The Coconut Club, an Ann Siang Hill favourite for their Nasi Lemak, has also made is way back onto the list after being left out from the selection in 2019.
