World’s Cheapest Michelin-Starred Meal Comes to Melbourne

When the revered Michelin Guide awarded a Singapore street vendor one of its coveted stars in 2016, the culinary world took notice and so did every other die-hard foodie.

Upon winning the star, the original hawker stall in Chinatown Food Complex garnered long queues for a taste of its wildly-popular soya sauce chicken rice dish—which cost a mere US$1.47 (SGD$2).

Soon after, the chef behind the hawker stall, Chan Hon Meng, was catapulted to fame alongside his tasty offerings and has since opened a chain of Hawker Chan quick-service restaurants serving the same dishes.

Now, chef Chan has set his sights on Melbourne. The first Hawker Chan outpost in Australia will open its doors on December 8, with a menu that mirrors Singapore’s with some local adaptations.

Highlights include the stall’s famous soya sauce chicken dish, as well as roast pork, char siew, and pork rib. All are available with either noodles or rice. Diners can also order wonton soup, seasonal vegetables, Thai-style tofu, and a soya bean-sprouts dish.

The Hawker Chan franchise is owned by Chan and Hersing Culinary, which is also behind the Michelin-starred dim sum franchise Tim Ho Wan in Melbourne and Sydney.
