The Michelin Guide continues its steady expansion in Asia with the announcement that the company will be sending inspectors to Singapore to asses the country’s hotels and restaurants.
The news comes after Japan, Hong Kong and Macau were added to Michelin’s list of inspected destinations and sees further expansion from the company who have also made inroads in Latin America with the recent launch of a guide in Brazil.
Singapore is one of the most diverse dining destinations in Asia with a whole host of exciting eateries that mix high end restaurants and some of the best street food in the world.
Speaking about the news, Michelin director Michael Ellis said: “We are particularly pleased to continue our development in Asia in 2016 with the launch of a Michelin guide for Singapore, he added: “The city is a cultural and commercial crossroad and its gastronomy is enriched by influences from all over Asia, which makes it particularly attractive to foreign chefs. Our inspectors are eager to start wandering the streets of Singapore and unearthing some exceptional restaurants.”
There’s no news as of yet on whether the guide will follow Hong Kong’s recent edition with a selection of the best street food destination but with the country boasting hawker centres that cook up some of the most hygienic and tastiest street food in the world, it would seem a mistake not to.
