Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice And Noodle Review: The Cheapest Michelin Star Meal In The World

26th July 2016

$2 for a one-star Michelin meal? YASSSS

Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken (2)

Everytime I hear someone talk about “Michelin star” restaurants, I think of fine dining establishments and their hefty prices. But hey, tides have changed and the very first Michelin guide in Singapore states that we can now afford to eat at a Michelin star HAWKER STALL for just $2.

Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken (1)

Situated in the heart of Chinatown, on the second level of Smith Street Food Centre, Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice And Noodle was bustling with a long (and I mean, loooong) line of people when we arrived at 2.30pm.

To get a taste of this highly coveted dish, we queued for not 1, but a whopping 2 hours! We knew this stall has been popular even before they were awarded with  a Michelin star, but what ensues now is a snaking long queue past lunch time and during off-peak hours (consider yourself warned!)

Their opening hours on weekdays are from 10:30am to 7pm, but they were already starting to close for the day at around 4.30pm because there were no more ingredients left.

The soya sauce chicken was tender and silky, with a combination of savoury and subtly sweet flavours bursting in my mouth as I chewed on a piece.

Together with the bowl of rice that was doused in a special brown sauce, the dish was fragrant and delicious.

Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles ($2.50)

The noodles was tasty and not soggy at all, while faring as a good complement to the chicken without being overpowering – I enjoyed it thoroughly.

The Verdict

If you do spend 2 hours of your life queueing for this meal, consider going all out by getting a half or whole chicken – you won’t regret it. Feel free to wait for the craze to die down a little before queuing for this, but if you would like to soak in the Michelin craze then why not? After all, it is the cheapest Michelin star dish around right now and why would you say no to a mouth-watering plate of goodness for just $2?
