(This column was written by me for a Continual Assessment back in mid-August, and it just comes full circle to the first article I wrote last year, Singapore’s own Michelin Star Fiasco of 2016. Apologies for the sudden lack of content, I have been really busy with schoolwork, and I am once again, flying solo on my blog! I am still looking for writers to join me, click here if you are interested to find out more!)
The guide is in its 2nd edition, and I am still unconvinced by it, for the second time in a row.
Honestly, if you were to ask me about my opinion on the number of Cafes ‘part of the Third-Wave’ sprouting out in Singapore, I would say… Half of them aren’t even worth a visit… But first, let’s ask this question… What defines a Cafe? Good Food, Artisanal Coffee, Amazing Desserts? Or by calling the place a Cafe, it automatically beomes one…
If you are even slightly interested in the Food Scene here in Singapore, you would have known that Singapore is about to have its own Michelin Guide, expected to arrive in the second half of this year… There have been mixed feelings by the skeptical foodies among us, and some food bloggers have also done up a list for restaurants that they think is worthy of a Michelin Star. But today, I am not going to do that, maybe on another occasion… What I want to discuss about in this article is whether a Michelin Star guide will do more harm than good for Singapore…
