Singapore: Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle


Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle: World's Cheapest Michelin-Starred Meal

The Michelin Guides are a series of guide books published by French tire manufacturer, Michelin. No idea on how a tire company began rating food establishments but it is what it is now. In 2016, Michelin deemed Singapore as a dining destination and a guide specific to Singapore has been launched. In that inaugural guide, Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle was included making it the world's cheapest Michelin-Starred meal. That is if you don't consider the dollar equivalent of the time used to queue for a plate or 2. 



Insane queue at 12 noon
after 2.5 hours, almost there
chef-owner Chan Hon Meng hard at work
 Last I heard he will be selling the business for 2M SGD.

2.50 sgd - soya chicken with noodle

The chicken is so tender and flavorful. Worth queueing for for 3 hours? Not sure but it was mighty tasty.

3.00 sgd pork ribs with rice
I wanted the roast pork but the guy right before me in the queue took all that's left. So I settled for the pork ribs, not too shabby! Maybe one of these days I'll go back and try my luck with the roast pork.
