Even as The Michelin Guide’s Singapore Street Food Festival is approaching, it didn’t stop Hawker Chan, the Michelin Star soya sauce chicken rice store, from popping up a store to serve Singapore street food in London.
The event held by KERB, in collaboration with Singapore Airlines and the Singapore Tourism Board, showcased the famous and the cheapest Michelin Star soya sauce chicken rice out there.
Mr Chan Hong Meng will be in London from 14 Mar till 16 Mar 2018, serving the delicacy each day from 11.30am.
They are only making 200 portions, priced at £6 (S$11) each.
The world’s first Michelin starred street food trader, Hawker Chan, enjoying a @wheelcakeisland after a tough day of chopping those soya crisp chickens for you on Granary Square. Whose dream it was “to see more of the undiscovered local hawker talent (where he started) enjoyed on an international stage”. Well today he cracked that, it’s brilliant to bring someone like Chan to London to showcase the limitless possibilities of street food. We want a London street food Michelin star in the future ? And big thanks to @singaporeair. • Back tomorrow 11.30 – 2.30 / link in bio for full story, and the chance to nab a free dish on Friday.
A queue of more than 300 people was developed 2 hours before the store starts selling. Some people even started waiting in line as early as 8am.
Due to the limited quantity, many had to be turned away. But those who had the chance to have a bite said they had no regrets waiting so long.
Hawker Chan was awarded a Michelin Star in 2016 for his spin-off of local hawker stall Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle.
It was touted as the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred meal at a whopping S$2.
Mr Chan expanded his business after signing a deal with Hersing Culinary, which allowed him to open outlets around the world, including one in Australia last December.
The Michelin Guide’s Singapore Street Food Festival appearing at the end of this month will also showcase Mr Chan and his famed craft on the soya sauce chicken rice.
