The list, revealed on June 24, is the eighth edition of MICHELIN Guide Singapore and features 283 restaurants that wowed inspectors.

“Singapore's multicultural character extends beautifully to its world-renowned food scene,” MICHELIN Guide’s International Director, Gwendal Poullennec, said.

“The variety of options – from fine-dining establishments to iconic hawker centres steeped in tradition – offer a truly captivating culinary experience for visitors.”

Chef Melvin, who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Sydney in 2013 with a Diplôme de Cuisine, was deeply humbled by the recognition.

“I am immensely grateful for this prestigious honour,” he said.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my exceptional team, both past and present, for their unwavering dedication and remarkable talent.

“I look forward to achieving even greater milestones together in the future.”

Melvin’s culinary career spans the globe, having worked in Australia, San Francisco, Tokyo and the United Kingdom.

His philosophy is influenced by his time working with renowned chefs such as Dan Hunter, fostering a strong commitment to farm-to-table practices and high quality, seasonal ingredients.

At Terra restaurant he focuses on delivering contemporary Italian cuisine with a fusion of premium Japanese ingredients to create a unique and refined dining experience.

Congratulations to Chef Melvin and the wider Terra Tokyo Italian team on this achievement!
