Six 2-Michelin-Star Restaurants in Singapore – food lover's essential guide

Singapore maintains a strong food culture. Love for food is quite a strong presence and that is very much evident in the star quality restaurants.

1

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

This restaurant draws its inspiration from its namesake in London. The London restaurant has more than three floors with two restaurants. Interestingly, this restaurant's chefs often research on new cookery methods. That has won them a number of awards as well. And that ensures an exclusive dining experience. Because of its research-friendly environment, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon is compared to an artist's studio.

If you come across a unique flavour, you can approach the chef and inquire more about it. The best thing about the restaurant is that you have the opportunity to dine at your own leisure. In fact, you will be doing them a favour. You will help them better their skill and the next time you will likely have an even better meal.

2

Les Amis

Located within 15 minutes of Somerset Liang Court Singapore, Les Amis offers you an essentially French experience. In French, it means 'The Friends'. Open to the public since 1994, this two-star restaurant takes you to a different plane of fine-dining. The restaurant is known as Singapore's first fine-dining restaurant. The food served at the restaurant has a simple Asian flavour fused with French style.

3

Odette

Interestingly this restaurant is located inside the National Gallery. Open to the public since 2015, the restaurant quickly shot to fame. That fame has made it difficult to find a seat – 40 in all – in the restaurant. Another place to try out French cuisine, Odette was already famous well before it was ranked two Michelin stars. The restaurant is easy to locate if you stay at nearby serviced accommodation. Singapore has most restaurants located close to serviced accommodations.

4

Restaurant André

Restaurant Andre depends on eight signature elements: salt, pure, artisan, south, unique, texture, terroir and memory. Founded by Andre Chiang, the restaurant stands a cut above the rest in Chinatown. Chef Andre has made use of his experiences in many restaurants before establishing Restaurant Andre.

Within the first three years, Restaurant Andre became one of the 50 best restaurants under the S Pellegrino survey. The New York Times handpicked it as one of the top 10 restaurants in the world 'worth a plane ride'. When you get inside, you will feel the pulse of Chef Andre's creativity. Although relatively a small place, it speaks a lot for Andre's creative mind.

5

Shisen Hanten

At Shisen Hanten, you will get to experience the fusion of Japanese and Singaporean cuisine. Chen Kentaro provides a Japanese interpretation to Singapore's traditional meal. This Japanese restaurant has several popular cuisines influenced by a family recipe. Chef Kenmin mastered his culinary skills in Taiwan before settling down in Singapore with his restaurant. Slow and steady, he worked hard ultimately to become a culinary icon in his own way. Enjoying food through five senses is his motto.

6

Shoukouwa

Shoukouwa has excelled in fresh seafood cuisine. Seafood is transported to Singapore from Tokyo on a daily basis. That ensures a unique experience of Japanese-Singaporean fusion.
