You may have no doubts about their true quality, starting from the artistic, luxurious decorations to the menus and how the dishes and drinks are served. But what about the price? Are you ready to experience the taste of delicious foods in Michelin-star restaurants?
So, what are the restaurants in Southeast Asia which have earned their Michelin stars? Do check this list out and give each one a try :
1. Summer Pavilion, The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia, Singapore
Singapore has been well-known as one of the Southeast Asian countries which have many shopping malls, restaurants, and hotels. Summer Pavilion, one of the stand-out Cantonese restaurants in town, earned their first Michelin Star in August 2016. According to Chinese Executive Chef, Cheung Siu Kong, his cooking philosophy in Summer Pavilion requires modest techniques that will bring out the ingredients’ natural flavours.
If you are looking for poached rice with lobster, walk down 7 Raffles Avenue to find Summer Pavilion. It’s in Ritz-Carlton, by the way. It is even better if you are the hotel guest staying over. Just come out of the room and it is much closer.
2. The Song of India, Singapore
Still in Singapore, this is the only Indian restaurant which has received a Michelin Star, boasting top Indian chefs like Atul Kochhar and Vikas Khanna who have earned and still keep their Michelin Stars, thanks to their international ventures. Located in 33 Scotts Road, you get to try Wazwan-style lamb chops or the kufi dessert. The lamb chop portion will be more than enough to fill you up. Of course, since this is an Indian restaurant with a Michelin Star reputation, Chef Mural also adds something more aesthetic to the way the food is designed and served. For example: mustard fish. Chef Mural adds a little twist by shaping the fish meat into a rectangular shape, with purple and orange heart-shaped sauces on the same plate.
3. Bacchanalia, Singapore
Although it is located in 39 Hong Kong street, Bacchanalia is still in Singapore. Having received a Michelin Star, Head Chef Ivan Brehm and his kitchen crew work their wonders to keep up with their quality. The kitchen is open to customers, so they get to see how their dishes are prepared before they are served. For starters, you can try bread and broth, which is made of cheese and olive oil dipping. Hmm, feeling hungry already?
Then you can try other meals on the menu. Poached chicken breast or grass-fed beef striploin, anyone? Do not forget the basil marshmallow and compressed dried pineapple. In this world-class European restaurant, you will dine like you have never done so before.
So far, you have got three different tastes, from Cantonese, Indian, and European. Hopefully, with these three Michelin Star restaurants in Singapore, you get to have the best culinary experience ever. After that, you can start checking out other Southeast Asian countries for more flavours served on your table. Are you ready?
