Watch: This Soy Sauce Chicken Is One of the Cheapest Michelin-Starred Meals in the World

People wait hours for a chance to try Hawker Chan Hon Meng’s signature dish

If a flavorful lunch from a Michelin-starred establishment for less than the price of a latte sounds too good to be true, it's time to meet Chan Hon Meng. On this episode of Consumed, host (and Eater Editor-in-Chief) Amanda Kludt visits the New York City pop-up of one of Singapore's street food stars.

Chan Hon Meng is a hawker, operating one of the thousands of street food stalls in Singapore that fill the country's malls, side streets, and public spaces. Called Hong Kong Soya Chicken Rice and Noodle, Chan's stall is a popular destination for soy sauce chicken with rice, plates of which sell for about two US dollars apiece. Last year marked the first time the Michelin guide visited Singapore, and also the first time that a stall like Chan's was included in the guide. To celebrate the occasion, he visited New York to cook for a new audience and share a plate of his signature chicken with Kludt. Watch the video above to learn more.
