If you walked passed this restaurant and had a look, you’d never in the world have thought it had been recognised by Michelin…

From the falling apart menus kept together with sticky tape, to the yellow mustard plastic chairs; quality and Michelin are not words that come to mind when you think of J.B. Ah Meng.

J.B. Ah Meng has been awarded a Michelin Bib (A.K.A. Bib Gourmand: recognising good food at an affordable price) by Michelin (yep, you guessed it, the same organisation that awards Michelin Stars), and boy-oh-boy does it sure deserve it!

Although this looks like your typical local restaurant in an Asian country, with little thought having being put into the design of the place, the quality and taste of the food was just simply unbelievable (personally I think, the time they’ve saved on making the place look pretty, they’ve used to make the food taste as good as it does!).

Each individual dish has been put together so carefully with the flavours and textures complimenting each other like ….umm…. cake and coffee ….or…. Oreos and milk ….or…. roast chicken and gravy (never mind, you get the point!).

So if you ever go to Singapore, this is one place to visit, but be sure to book in advance or you’ll be waiting for at least an hour!

King Pork Ribs: This wasn’t one of my personal favourites in terms of flavour, but the meat was still cooked very well – crispy on the outside, moist on the inside.
