How did the Michelin Star came about? The brothers who formed the Michelin tyre empire was finding a way to increase demand for cars, and therefore the tyres they sold. So in the early 1900s, brothers Andre and Edouard Michelin came up with the Michelin guide books to let motorists know where to find petrol stations, hotels, or the best meals. They grew ever more popular, with the guide’s influence growing along the Michelin tyre business. They decided to hire a team of inspectors that’ll anonymously rate and judge restaurants, and the Michelin star rankings for restaurants first began in 1926. The rest, as they say, is history.

6. Oshino


For Chef Koichiro Oshino, being a sushi shokunin (sushi artisan) represents a deep, existential calling, one that he has pursued for more than three decades.

From humble beginnings to coveted roles at leading sushi restaurants, he has maintained a profound respect for his work, its unique origins and every experience at the table.

As an award-winning Edomae sushi chef, he is deeply inspired by the poignant beauty of impermanence that makes each moment distinct and remarkable. Every dish must thus be prepared with utmost care and served with reverence.

In 2010, Chef Oshino was appointed Master Chef of Michelin-starred omakase restaurant Shinji by Kanesaka in Singapore – a post he held for almost a decade at both Raffles Hotel and Carlton Hotel.
