City envy: Singapore's Michelin-starred street food


There's no denying that London has some stellar street food. But a Singapore chef has just been crowned official king of the kerb - becoming the world's first street-food vendor to be granted a Michelin star. Vietnam-born chef Chan Hon Meng was awarded the prestigious accolade for his stall, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle. It may be a mouthful of a name, but the mouthfuls it serves ñ including (yes) chicken with soy sauce and rice, as well as dumpling soup and pork ribs ñ regularly draw queues of over a hundred hungry punters (which we're predicting will now get longer - soz, guys). Prices start from the equivalent of £1.14 and go up to £8, which also means the stall offers the cheapest Michelin- starred grub on the planet. Even an underpaid Londoner could dine like royalty at this place. Long live food democracy!

We also want an ice cream museum like New York and Shanghai's Uber hot air balloon rides.
