Michelin guide recognizes Singapore hawkers

Michelin guide recognizes Singapore hawkers



Culinary bible Michelin on Thursday, July 21, awarded one star each
to two street food hawkers in Singapore, the first in the guide’s

Launching the inaugural restaurant and hotel guide to the Southeast
Asian city-state, Michelin inspectors gave one star each to Hill Street
Tai Hwa Pork Noodle and Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle.

“For the first time, you would be able to have a Michelin-starred
meal for under Sg$5 ($3.70),” said Michael Ellis, international director
of the Michelin guides. (…)”

Congratulations to them! This is amazing and a huge step forward for food culture, that the Michelin guide is willing to recognize and recommend chefs who don’t have white-tablecloth service and a tony address behind them. Not to mention a wonderful compliment for the chefs!

This is the fantasy I was envisioning when I had Steve win a Michelin star for War On Hunger. 😀
