5 Restaurants Newly Minted with One Michelin Star

1. Born

A modern dining room embellished by shimmering double arches, a high glass ceiling, and an ethereal paper sculpture is housed in Jinricksha Station (a former rickshaw depot circa 1903). Chef Zor Tan, a protégé of André Chiang’s, prepares a tasting menu inspired by the circle of life and his personal experience, fusing French gastronomy with Chinese cookery. Dishes offered are inventive and handcrafted with locally sourced ingredients, creating texture and flavor contrasts.

2. Poise

One MICHELIN STAR was awarded for its tasting menu, which reinvents European and Nordic classics that appear modest but are riddled with ingenious and imaginative pairings, as well as a sophisticated layering of textures and flavors.

Chef Steve Lancaster presents his culinary masterpieces in a monochrome chamber with theatrical lighting to draw attention to the food. The Chicken, Bacon, and Onion meal consists of a chicken lollipop packed with chicken mousse and served above a shallot purée cooked with bacon and onion, which adds flavor depth.

3. Seroja

Chef Kevin Wong, alumnus of prominent institutions in France, the United States, and Singapore, opened the restaurant in 2022 to express his passion for the Malay Archipelago. His seafood-focused tasting menus pay homage to Malaysian culinary traditions by making liberal use of native ingredients, flavors, and methods. The presentation is precise and artistic, and the flavors are delicate and well-balanced.

4. Sushi Sakuta

With a 10-seat counter built from a 200-year-old cypress tree from Nara, Japan, the space is basic yet lovely. Chef-owner Yoshio Sakuta collaborates closely with the all-Japanese culinary crew to create a seasonally inspired omakase menu featuring sushi and Japanese seafood, as well as luxury products such as caviar and truffles.

5. Willow

Singaporean chef Nicolas Tam, who has experience in various prominent kitchens, opened Willow as his first restaurant. His refined, precise, and balanced pan-Asian tasting menu features largely Japanese ingredients and his strong French skills. The meals are served and introduced by the chefs themselves, and they flow flawlessly and build on each other.
