Singapore Food Stall Michelin Star

If you visit Singapore’s largest open air food market, you may notice that one stall in particular features an unusually long queue. Eager customers line up before the stall even opens, waiting several hours just to place an order. But a delicious plate of Hong Kong-style soya sauce chicken noodle is worth the wait. Need proof? The stall, run by chef Chan Hon Meng, was awarded a Michelin star, making it the first street food stall ever to receive the prestigious honor. Sampling a plate of soya sauce chicken and rice will cost you a whole $1.50 USD — making it the most affordable meal that can be purchased at a Michelin starred establishment.
