Published since 1986, Singapore Tatler’s Best Restaurants has been offering an authoritative snapshot of the nation’s best dining experiences for more than three decades. It has assessed and reflected the exponential growth that our lauded dining scene has enjoyed—celebrating stalwarts alongside new talent who help change the way we feast, one delicious dish at a time.
The dining scene over the last year has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for gourmands, who were left questioning what the future might bring now that some of the biggest names have shuttered, including Singapore’s only three-michelin-starred restaurant, Joël Robuchon. But we’ve gained some fine ones, too, whose stars we predict will shine even brighter in the coming years.
Esora, for one, has only been open for a few of months and is already getting a ton of praise— from pundits and diners alike. And after a successful run at Iggy’s, chef Aitor Jeronimo Orive has decided to forge his own path, serving reimagined Basque cuisine at the newly opened Basque Kitchen by Aitor. With many more exciting arrivals slated for the near future, we can only wait with bated breath and ready appetites for what’s to come. In the meantime, we remain thankful that we’re already spoilt for choice.
