Story Behind the Restaurant
Hawker Chan refers to Chan Hon Meng, a Singaporean chef who gained international recognition for his street food stall, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle.
The main stall, located in Chinatown Complex Food Centre in Singapore, shot to fame when it was awarded a Michelin star in the 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore, making it the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred meal at the time.
Chan Hon Meng’s stall specializes in Hong Kong-style soya sauce chicken rice and noodles, offering a simple yet delicious menu. The recognition from Michelin brought attention to the hawker center and to the affordable yet high-quality food that can be found in Singapore’s hawker culture.
Following the success, Chan Hon Meng expanded his culinary ventures, opening more restaurants under the “Hawker Chan” brand in various countries, including Australia, Thailand, Taiwan, and the Philippines. The expansion has allowed people outside Singapore to experience the flavors of his renowned soya sauce chicken.
Hawker Chan’s story is often celebrated as an example of how traditional street food and hawker center fare can achieve international acclaim, showcasing the rich and diverse culinary scene in Singapore.
