Street Food Stall Becomes Best Restaurant in the World

Street Food Stall Becomes Best Restaurant in the World

The Michelin Guide series has represented the gold standard for fine dining all over the world - for over a century. Though of late, it has been criticized for not being an accurate measure of the planet's "best" restaurants, generally because most can't afford it.



So Michelin has expanded its reach to include a variety of food from all corners of the globe. And that's how a street vendor in Singapore just became the first Michelin-starred chef in the world.



The hawker stall called "Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle" is run by Chan Hong Meng, a Malaysian born, Hong Kong trained chef. Their chicken, pork, rice, and noodles are so popular that lines form around the block to get served.



Meng has been doing it for 35 years, from the age of 16. He was surprised to recieve a phone call from Michelin in July this year informing him of the award.



He was invited to the Michelin Guide Singapore Gala Dinner and was honored along-with some of the most famous chefs in the world.



And that's how you can now get a Michelin-starred dish for under $2! Even if you have to wait for more than 3 hours in line, it's worth it!
