Part of the Michelin Guide Singapore, the Bib Gourmand category was created in 1997 to recognise establishments that offer diners a value-for-money gourmet experience in Singapore, with a complete and high-quality menu priced at a maximum of S$45. All eateries are nominated by Michelin guide inspectors.
Of the nine additions to this year’s list, five are restaurants, three are hawker centre stalls and one is a street food establishment.
On the hawker front, there are two stalls from Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre in Toa Payoh. Firstly, Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodle which offers blanched rice noodles tossed in a thick gravy. Also making the list is Lixin Teochew Fishball Noodles, well-known for their handmade fish balls, which are springy in texture and mixed in with blanched noodles tossed in chilli sauce with crispy cracklings.
There is also Berseh Food Centre’s Kelantan Kway Chap Pig Organ Soup, which is a hit with patrons thanks to their pork cuts and offal cooked in a soy-based marinade with spices, boasting rich and deep flavours.
