Bib Gourmand Adds Kok Sen, The Coconut Club and 17 newly-awarded Hawker Centre Stalls in the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2023.

Today, the MICHELIN Guide has revealed the 2023 Bib Gourmand Selection for Singapore, featuring a grand total of 79 food establishments. This year’s selection includes two restaurants and 17 hawker centre stalls, an increase from the 67 establishments honored in 2022.

Among the notable additions are Kok Sen, renowned for its traditional local dishes such as tze char classics and prawn paste chicken, and The Coconut Club, which offers a delectable nasi lemak set and other tantalizing dishes like ayam goreng berempah and sago pudding infused with pandan, palm sugar, and coconut cream.

The 17 newly awarded Bib Gourmand hawker stalls are

  • Adam Rd Noo Cheng Big Prawn Noodle in Adam Food Centre serves prawn mee using a recipe inherited from the owner’s father. Opt for the “dry” noodles tossed in prawn paste of your desired spice level alongside a bowl of prawn soup.
  • Bahrakath Mutton Soup, also in Adam Food Centre, has been serving its secret mutton soup recipe since 1973. The broth is rich, dense, and full of herbal flavours. 
  • Beach Road Fish Head Bee Hoon in Whampoa Market Place serves sliced fish bee hoon (rice vermicelli) in a flavourful, milky fish stock with fried garlic bits for extra fragrance and crunch. 
  • Cheok Kee in Geylang Bahru Market & Food Centre is famous for its soy-marinated duck that boasts velvety flesh. The duck sits on a bed of steamed rice perfumed by duck fragrance. It comes with chilli vinegar that aptly cuts through the richness and an aromatic duck soup made with Chinese herbs. 
  • Du Du Shou Shi in Jurong West 505 Market & Food Centre carries two varieties of tu tu kueh—coconut and peanut. The steamed rice cake is chewy and springy on the outside; while both fillings are nutty, sweet, and aromatic. 
  • Heng Kee in Hong Lim Market & Food Centre was founded in the 1970s and is currently run by its second-generation owner. The stall’s hallmark dishes are mild, well-balanced curry broth, custom-made tofu puffs and fish cakes, as well as generous helpings of velvety chicken. 
  • Hui Wei Chilli Ban Mee, also located in Geylang Bahru Market & Food Centre, serves ribbon noodles with “soup” or “dry” options. The latter is tossed in homemade chilli sauce and topped with minced meat, meatballs, poached egg, and fried lard. 
  • Ji De Lai Hainanese Chicken Rice at Chong Pang Market and Food Centre has been a selected stall in the MICHELIN Guide in the previous years. The hawker stall is promoted with a Bib Gourmand recognition for its reasonably priced chicken rice sets served with either roasted or steamed chicken, rice, soup, and vegetables.
  • Kwee Heng located in Newton Food Centre has over 40 years of history, making boneless braised duck that is tender, juicy, and flavoursome. It can be served with rice, congee, or noodles. 
  • Nam Sing Hokkien Fried Mee in 51 Old Airport Road Market has been serving just one item since it opened in 1960—Hokkien fried mee with prawns. The egg noodles and rice vermicelli are tossed in a rich broth made with prawn shells and tomalley to impart deep umami. 
  • No.18 Zion Road Fried Kway Teow in Zion Riverside Food Centre serves kway teow noodles fried to order, topped with fish cake and cockles. The wok hei is impressive,with robust flavours and a hint of spiciness, while the cockles lend extra umami.
  • Selamat Datang Warong Pak Sapari in Adam Food Centre is now run by its third-generation owners. This family business is famous for mee soto and mee rebus, with authentic Malaysian flavours. The former is served in broth, while the latter is served in a thick gravy soup. 
  • Singapore Fried Hokkien Mee in Whampoa Market Place is famous for Hokkien mee made with rice vermicelli and yellow egg noodles, which are topped with prawns and squid for umami. Each serving of noodles is made even better with a helping of spicy home-made chilli sauce. 
  • Soon Huat in North Bridge Road Market & Food Centre serves both “dry” or “soup”noodles, topped with butterflied prawns, fish cake, bean sprouts and fried garlic. The delectable prawn soup on the side is also a treat. 
  • Spinach Soup in Geylang Bahru Market & Food Centre is the place to go for a bowl of comfort. The broth is tasty and sweet, while the spinach remains crisp and fresh. 
  • Tai Seng Fish Soup in Taman Jurong Market & Food Centre is a third-generation family business, which prides itself on its delicious fish soup made from scratch, served with sliced fish, deep-fried fish, or fish head. 
  • Young Chun Wan Ton Noodle located at 115 Bukit Merah View Market & Food Centre serves springy egg noodles, best enjoyed in its “dry” form —balanced and dressed in a savoury sweet sauce, topped with wonton with minced pork.
