Hawker Chan – the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world is now in Manila

Reading about Chef Chan Hong Meng‘s humble beginning, originally from Malaysia, he is a son of a farmer who flew to Singapore in the 80’s and was trained by a Hong Kong Chef where he got the recipe of his famous Singapore Soya Sauce Chicken and Noodles. He is a true inspiration to those restaurateur, that you just need one good dish and dedication to make it big.

As Mr. Rikki Dee was telling a story about how Michelin approached Chef Chan, “How did Michelin approached you?” He said that they came to the store and tolf him they’ll award him the Michelin Star and he was like “Oh! Ok” then went back to work. In his mind “Who cares? I don’t even know what Michelin award is?” 😀

Roast Chicken (Whole Php598)

The famous Soy Chicken was really juicy and the reason behind that is they get 1 Kilo to 1.5 Kilo net weight of chicken.  They talked to several farm to make it to their standard.

Soya Sauce Chicken with Rice (Php128 plus 70 for the Char Siu)

Now I know why people will flock just to buy one because it really is worth the long queue.  When it comes to the Roasted Pork, you will also love this as it was really tender and smoky. I love the flavors all the way through.

Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle with Roasted Pork (Php158 + 70)

Now with their Noodles, they bring in the recipe and try to look for a new supplier which took them awhile. But now, everything’s good and I am liking the firmness of this noodles.  It was a bit bland but the Roasted Pork/Chicken surely will make up for it. There’s a bit of a Sambal sauce if you wanted a spicy kick.



Thai-Style Tofu (Php160)

We also tried their Thai-Style Tofu and was just amazing! As you know, I love Tofu and this one here was really tasty! It was spicy yet the Tofu was smooth and chewy. Make sure to get one.

Imagine, there’s no need for you to go all the way to Singapore to taste Chef Chan’s masterpiece.
