Nine new eating establishments have been added to the second edition of Michelin Singapore's Bib Gourmand list, released on Thursday (June 22).
The list recognises restaurants and street food establishments offering quality food for not more than $45 a person.
New entrants to the list of 38, up from 34 last year, include Bar-Roque Grill at Amara Hotel; Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant in Keong Saik Road; Blue Ginger in Tanjong Pagar Road; Ah Er Herbal Soup at ABC Brickworks Market; Zai Shun Curry Fish Head, also in Jurong; ramen joint Tsuta at Pacific Plaza; Shirokane Tori-Tama in Robertson Walk; and New Lucky Claypot Rice in Holland Drive.
Hawker Chan, a spiffed-up eatery spun off from the Michelin-starred Liao Fan soya sauce chicken stall in Chinatown market, also made the Bib Gourmand list this year.
Five eateries which made it on the list last year, are gone: Alaturka in Bussorah Street, Hjh Maimunah in Jalan Pisang, The Fishball Story now in Timbre+, Wedang in Aljunied Avenue 2, and JB Ah Meng in Geylang.
However, some of these names might well turn up on the list of Michelin-starred establishments, to be announced on June 29 at a ceremony at The Fullerton.
Hawker stalls, which made up 17 of the 34 names on last year's Bib Gourmand list, are less in the limelight this year. Eighteen of the 38 names on this year's list are restaurants.
