For those who travel in Singapore (which I’m planning to visit soon), I believe that there’s always something awesome to look forward to their beautiful country more than just the “Sentosa” and the “Merlion Park.” Their Singaporean Cuisine has been the most “top of the list” of all travelers. And here in Metro Manila, the bustling dining scene has just zoomed several notches higher with the opening of the Singapore’s BEST: Hawker Chan.
This internationally acclaimed Singapore-based restaurant promises to rock the Philippines with its gloriously delicious dishes, especially its soya chicken rice. Enough with the intro, let me share to you the 5 things you should be SO EXCITED about this Singaporean BEST.
1. Hawker Chan’s global popularity belies its humble beginnings.
The restaurant was founded by Malaysian Chef Chan Hong Meng, the son of a farmer, who flew to Singapore in the 1980s and trained under a Hong Kong chef. It was under his mentor’s guidance that he learned to prepare the now famous Singapore Soya Sauce Chicken and Noodle.
2. Their “Soya Sauce Chciken Rice” is “worth waiting the line.”
In 2009, Chan Hong Mong opened a small store at the Chinatown Complex, the largest open-air hawker centre in Singapore, where he served soya sauce Chicken rice – a dish that quickly caught the imagination of diners across Singapore. Through the years, Chan Hong Mong painstakingly refined his recipe, to the delight of diners who lined up hours on end at the stall.
3. Hawker Chan is the CHEAPEST Michelin-starred restaurant in the world
In July of 2016, Michelin’s Singapore Guide debuted and among those recognized was Hawker Chan, making it the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world. Just this month, Liao Fan Hawker Chan at 78 Smith Street in Singapore was among the 50 restaurants included in the 2018 Bib Gourmand Awards, which recognizes eateries with menu items that cost no more than S$45, for their value for money. More than just the price, it’s the taste that count most that makes them earn a Michelin Star. Now that’s something.
4. Hawker Chan opens its doors at SM Mall of Asia
Located at the Ground Floor, Entertainment Mall at SM Mall of Asia Complex, the restaurant seats 86 and is perfect for those who want a great, affordably-priced, hearty meal for all barkadas and family gatherings.
