My experience eating the cheapest Michelin’ awarded dish

[Português em breve, ou use o tradutor linkado <3]

Forget everything you know about Michelin restaurants being expensive and luxurious. I truly believed myself that could be impossible to eat a Michelin’ dish for less than 10 dollars.

I had the chance to “meet” the hawkers in Singapore, what is more than a simple food court: it takes you to the best kitchen experience in town, maybe in all Asia. And also, the new town of the cheapest Michelin’ awarded restaurant.

In Chinatown, at the Maxwell Food Centre, was time to eat one of the best chicken and rice in the world. So, after 25 minutes in the queue and no air conditioning to combat Singapore’s roasting heat, to buy one of the most famous dishes in Chinatown’s Hawker: rice chicken. The now famous stall “Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle” is now a milestone for street food in the history of the reputed Michelin Guide.

A giant queue shows that something happened there. Behind a small balcony, three people squeezed into a minimum space to serve one of the dishes that costs from 2USD and tastes like heaven!

According to the Michelin guide, one-star award is given to restaurants that offer “high-quality cooking, worth a stop”. If you ever have a chance to go to Singapore, take a time to dine at this or one of the innumerous Hawkers around the city. An experience for life.
