Here’s how to get the cheapest Michelin-starred lunch in London

Kitty Drake

A street food hawker called Chan Hon Meng made history in 2016 when his Singaporean street stall became the first in the world to be awarded a Michelin star. Well, lucky us, because now he’s coming to London.

Called ‘Hawker Chan in London’, the stall will be popping up for three days at Kerb, King’s Cross from Wednesday March 14.

Malaysian born, Hong Kong-trained Chan Hon Meng will be dishing up his signature soya sauce chicken rice box for £6 a pop. Yup, people, that’s a Michelin-star-standard lunch for six quid. The downside? There are only 200 portions on offer each day, which is giving us hunger anxiety already. It could be worse, though: back in Singapore, you have to queue for this rice box for two hours.

Hawker Chan in London is popping up at Kerb, King’s Cross from Wednesday March 14-Friday March 16, noon-2pm. You can also enter a draw for a three-night trip to Singapore, courtesy of Singapore Airlines.
