Exclamation Cheapest (6 EUR) Michelin-starred meal in the world!

Hi FT'ers

Those of you who have already visited Singapore will certainly know that it is the foodie capital of Asia. Because it's a bit of a cultural melting pot, Singapore cuisine features the best of Malaysian, Indonesian, Thai, Japanese and other Asian cuisines - often at very affordable prices.

One of the things we liked most about Singapore was definitely the street food scene. And we figured that there would probably be some people on here who would like to hear about our absolute best find in this respect: a Michelin-starred hawker stall which serves up the best street food we have ever had, at ridiculously low prices. The place is called Hawker Chan - although the official (very original ) name is Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle. We had two mains each and some water (yes, we were hungry and wanted to try as much food here as we could) for... 6 EUR per person. Crazy, right?!

We were expecting to queue several hours for our meal (because that was also mentioned in the article linked below), but we had our food within 20-25 minutes of getting there. The food itself was incredible - the best street food we've ever had. The Char Siu (barbecue pork) was our favourite: it was deliciously succulent and so full of flavour. The inside of the restaurant is nothing special though. It's about as charming (and busy / noisy) as your average McDonalds...

If you are in Singapore and you love food, you HAVE to visit this place. If you're interested in going, we made a short YouTube video about our visit:

FYI: there is another Singapore hawker which also has a Michelin star, but we did not manage to eat there as they were closing earlier than stated by opening hours. You can find more information on both hawker stalls in this Telegraph article:

So... What's your favourite foodie destination?

All the best & safe travels,
