Singapore, the city notorious for its fanatical devotion to food, has joined the Michelin fold.
The tiremaker and publisher handed out its top accolade to just one establishment on Thursday — French celebrity chef Joël Robuchon’s eponymous restaurant. It was the first time that the Southeast Asian city’s dining scene faced the anonymous scrutiny of Michelin’s inspectors, who rank their meals using a three-star system. Wolfgang Puck’s steak restaurant Cut in the Marina Bay Sands complex was among 22 eateries awarded one star, as were two hawker stalls. Six restaurants received two stars.
