A Michelin-Starred Meal for $1.50



Download videos:


Chan Hon Meng is the master chef behind “Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle,” the food cart home to the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world. Ringing in at a mere $1.50, Meng’s perfected braised chicken recipe was passed down to him by his uncle. Now, he’s serving hundreds of meals a day out of his hawker in Singapore. And while his food has gained acclaim and recognition across the culinary community, Meng hasn’t forgotten his roots. He’s still serving up the same great food, all for under two bucks.SUBSCRIBE:

I visited India last year And travelled to two cities . Most of the street food vendors were serving meals for less than a dollar . And the cheapest I found was a 8 cent meal in a state called Chandigarh ( Sorry If I spelled it incorrectly).

Ahhh hahahah.. so funny seeing people clammer over 'Michelin Stars' as though their complete subjective criteria rooted from evaluating high class French cuisine suddenly is valid or applicable to cuisines all around the world

Kinda mad it was cut off. It sounded like he was gonna talk more about how his business changed when it got bigger. I would've been curious :/

No offense but Michelin's move seems to be generating buzz for fame alone. Michelin stars used to be about the full package. The food has to be exciting, seasonal and different every time they visit, the service has to be impeccable, there shouldn't be even a speck of dust on the table and when you see the 3 stars on their door, you know there's something special and perfect about this place. Giving stars to this hawkers is frankly an insult to the chefs who meticulously checking their restaurant every morning, constantly coming up with new ideas for their menu, study different cuisines, ingredients and techniques under other chefs for years just to get the first star. I guess Marco won at last.

Damn how can you make even money? Tasty damn cheap affordable you can tell it’s for the passion not for the money ! Be humble

I have had a hundred soy sauce chicken dinners but this is something special! And people who are complaining about the quality of the editing should first be talking about this man's honor for receiving a Michelin star!! Who in the hell cares about the editing? It's the story that's important!

So he is speaking Mandarin, right? And he speaks some other dialect originally and because of that his Mandarin doesn't sound normal, right?

Maybe a stupid question, but did he get the Michelin star for that one meal or for his whole cart/restaurant? I've always thought that restaurants get Michelin stars not meals so that's why I ask.

I think it's over hyped. I went to the original stall in chinatown's food court, the queue is long, the little granny is rude, and the chicken is bland, and dry.. Not really worth it, the stall around it is better..

You need more subscribers!!! It frustrates me that Youtubers like Logan Paul get millions of views everyday when these videos are so much more interesting and neat. Keep up the fantastic work!

This is why I never allow low price to be an excuse for bad food. Some chefs ought to be ashamed of themselves.
Sarah
its amazing after all this time he is able to preserve the low price without sacrificing taste

Much respect for not charging more or using cheaper ingredients after receiving the award.

I'm so hyped for this to open up in my city, can't wait to try it.\n\nI live in a third-world country and could only dream about trying out Michelin-starred food, this dude is a legend.

Sadly his business has become too commercialized. I had a chance to try the food at a larger outlet of his during a trip, and the quality of the food was quite poor. Meat and noodles were cold and dry. Maybe it used to be good, or it's only really good if it's prepared by him and not the mass-market restaurant that sprung up as a result of his fame from getting a michelin star. Honestly there were similar stalls in other hawker centers that tasted better.
