First of all regardless of what the Bib Gourmand Results are, we will like to congratulate all the awardees!! Well many of us definitely do not agree with the result as there are many good hawkers and restaurants in Singapore where some are still hidden within somewhere away from the city.
Bib Gourmand Guide started as early as 1954 where the guide indicated restaurants serving “good cuisine at a reasonable price which in Singapore’s case, it is within $45 for a three-course meal: starter, main course and desert. The Bib Gourmand Guide is to make it easier for readers to identify these eateries and restaurants.
It has been proven with popularity of the public who are always looking for good deals and the Bib Gourmand Guide is also to motivate the restaurateurs to continue and be committed in promoting affordable, quality cooking, thereby combining simplicity, a friendly atmosphere, authentic cuisine and low prices.
The Singapore Very First Bib Gourmand Guide 2016 Results are as follow:
“A true crossroads, a mix of cultures with Chinese, Malaysian and Indonesian influences, Singapore’s history is reflected in its cuisine – the variety, simplicity and authenticity completely won over our inspectors,” continues Michael ELLIS. So with 19 styles represented, including Indian, Cantonese, and even Vietnamese, the first Bib Gourmand selection is testimony to the richness and diversity of the city’s culinary landscape.
All listed restaurants, regardless of their star- or Bib Gourmand-status, also receive a “fork and spoon” designation, as a subjective reflection of the overall comfort and quality of the restaurant. Rankings range from one to five: One fork and spoon represents a “comfortable restaurant” and five signifies a “luxurious restaurant”. Forks and spoons coloured red designate a restaurant that is considered “pleasant” as well. In the latest 2016 edition of the Paris guide, a brand new L’assiette or The Plate symbol was launched to recognise restaurants that ‘simply serve good food’.
