The sophomore edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore isn’t quite as exciting as last year’s inaugural one. Perhaps the newness of it all has fizzled out a little, or maybe it’s because the two hawkers that made waves when they received one star in Singapore’s first Michelin Guide have remained the only street eateries to be presented with the honor.

Our take? Singaporeans, being so food-obsessed, already know what we love, and a list of expensive restaurants — which mostly remains the same from last year — isn’t gonna change that. Stars or no stars; we’re still gonna go chomping at our fave eateries.

Anyway, if you’re still determined to tick off Michelin-starred restaurants from your food bucket list, here are some quick figures: The 2017 guide features 38 restaurants, with 11 new entrants, 30 one-starred names, seven with two stars, and only one with the coveted three stars (Joel Robuchon Restaurant, of course).

Among the 11 new-to-the-list eateries are Saint Pierre by Emmanuel Stroobant, Cheek By Jowl by Rishi Naleendra, and Labyrinth by Singaporean chef Han Li Guang. Fans of the two hawker stalls — Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle and Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle — will be pleased to know they kept their stars. But on the other end of the spectrum, Seita Nakahara’s Terra and Sam Leong’s Forest were excluded from this year’s guide.

Check out the list in full below.
