At $1.50, This Hawker’s Specialty is the World’s Cheapest Michelin-Starred Meal

Great Big Story caught up with Chan Hong Meng, the Singaporean chef behind the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world. If you’re in the food trade – even tangentially – you’ll likely have heard of him, or better it, meaning his food. Still, I like seeing behind the curtain a little. Fascinating stuff.

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.
