Nine new spots were added today to a prestigious foodie list of joints that won’t burn that big a hole in the pocket.

A total of 67 – down two from last year – eateries were selected for Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand in Singapore this year, the French food guide announced this morning. Of those, 22 were restaurants, 40 were hawker center stalls and five were street food establishments. 

“Hawker centre stalls and street food are fully part of the very unique Singaporean culture, and our inspectors were amazed to deep dive into these authentic dishes that are full of flavour, culinary experiences, and led by talented professionals who enhance common ingredients,” international guide director Gwendal Poullennec said in a news release.

The newly recognized restaurants include Indonesian Cumi Bali; wine bar Fool, from owners of Cloudstreet and Kotuwa; prawn noodle house One Prawn & Co, Unagi Tei (formerly Man-man), and Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, which specializes in northeastern Thai cuisine.

The three hawker stalls were Berseh Food Centre’s Kelantan Kway Chap Pig Organ Soup, Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre’s Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodle, and Lixin Teochew Fishball Noodles. The lone street food stall was Beach Road’s Sing Lung HK Cheong Fun.

The main event, at which Michelin updates its constellation of stars, goes down July 12 at Marina Bay Sands. 

The guide’s Bib Gourmand category was created in 1997 to award establishments that offer a value-for-money gourmet experience.
