Hawker Chan's signature soya sauce chicken rice will be available for three days in King’s Cross

The world’s first Michelin starred hawker stall is coming to London.

Back in 2016, Michelin awarded the first ever hawker stall one of its prestigious stars. Malaysian born Chan Hong Ming’s hawker stall was awarded the star for his signature Hong Kong style soya sauce chicken.

At SGD $2, Chan Hong Ming’s soya sauce chicken rice is the cheapest Michelin starred meal in the world.

Now, Chan’s signature dish will be available in London. Between Wednesday 14 March and Friday 16 March from midday to 2pm, Chan’s soya sauce chicken rice boxes will be available at Kerb street food market in King’s Cross.

However, there will only be 200 portions available each day. One box of Chan’s Michelin star soya chicken rice will cost £6.

“My dream is to see more Singaporean cuisine and more of the undiscovered local hawker talent enjoyed on an international stage,” Chan said about the London pop up. “Whether you’re a restaurant chef or a street market hawker — with food you can never stop learning.”

Kerb’s director of markets and communications, Ian Dodds said, “it’s an honour to host the world’s first Michelin star street food trader at King’s Cross. We also hope this builds a wider conversation about the growing quality of street food in London — as it becomes more and more a part of life throughout the city we see no reason why one or two in London’s swelling hawker ranks couldn’t receive the same accolade.”
