SINGAPORE - After sparking much debate among foodies last year, the second edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore will be unveiled on June 29, in a gala award ceremony and dinner held at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore.

Like last year, the award ceremony-cum-gala dinner is opened to the public. The event comprises a five-course dinner whipped up by Michelin-recognised chefs. The wine-pairing dinner will open with canapes prepared by chef Leong Chee Yeng of Jade restaurant in The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, followed by main courses by chef Seita Nakahara from the one Michelin-starred Japanese-Italian restaurant Terra in Tras Street; chef Jason Tan of the one Michelin-starred Corner House in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is known for its vegetable-centric cuisine; chef Tam Kwok Fung of two Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Jade Dragon in Macau and chef Curtis Duffy of the three Michelin-starred Grace restaurant in Chicago.

Tickets are priced at $595++ a person and can be bought online (guide.michelin.sg) from today.

The guide's Bib Gourmand awards, which recognises food establishments offering high-quality meals for less than $45, will be released on June 22.

In the inaugural edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore last year, 29 eateries were given Michelin stars, while 34 restaurants and hawker stalls were recognised with the Bib Gourmand accolade.
