If you are planning to visit, we recommend you get there early because ingredients are limited and some fan-favourite items on the menu tend to go out of stock pretty quickly.

Renewed Entries from Bib Gourmand 2021

Alongside the nine new entries, we would also like to feature some of the restaurants that have made it to Michelin Bib Gourmand Selection for two or more years.

A Noodle Story, Amoy Street Food Centre
