The Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle stall in Singapore has a Michelin star.
Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice And Noodle has made history as the first street food stall in the world to be awarded a Michelin star.
“I am very excited. Never knew hawker food can go global,” Chan Hon Meng, the stall’s Malaysian-born owner, told Reuters back in July of last year.

Known as a “hawker”, there are more than 100 open-air hawker centers in Singapore, with more than 6,000 street restaurants selling similar multi-ethnic meals.
However, only two of them have a Michelin Star – Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice And Noodle and Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles.

While other restaurants and eateries in the country who have received a Michelin Star have prices ranging from $22 to $445 per meal, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle’s signature chicken rice dish costs only about $1.85 a plate.
If this teaches us anything, it is that things do not have to be expensive to be great, especially food. People who have the opportunity to pass by Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle can have a first class meal for less than $2, if that is not heaven on Earth, then I don’t know what is.
