Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle
Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle is located in the China Town Complex in Singapore’s Chinatown. A simple sign with the names of dishes, plastic dishes, ordinary chopsticks and a place in a common food court – the kiosk is no different from dozens of competitors in the neighborhood and from 15,000 other Singaporean eateries. But it is to this unremarkable showcase that meter lines are now lining up. The news that a simple eatery was among the 29 restaurants highlighted by the city’s recently launched Michelin guide quickly spread across Singapore.
At the same time, the menu of Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle includes the most common dishes: chicken with rice or noodles or vegetables in oyster sauce. The cost ranges from S $ 2.50 to S $ 4, and the most expensive item is considered to be grilled chicken for $ 14. And although Michelin inspectors chose this one from thousands of Singapore kiosks, the owner and chef of the establishment, 51-year-old Jang Hong Myung, is not going to raise prices yet.

MakanSutra Gluttons Bay
Makansutra Gluttons Bay is a street food restaurant located in Esplanade Park, close to the Bay Theater (more precisely, between it and The Float) overlooking Marina Bay. The restaurant has one small central structure where food stands, a series of tables, and benches are located. We can say that this is a modern restaurant, but at the same time, it does not cease to be a typical hawker (street tavern). This is an initiative of Makansutra, a firm that produces a variety of food guides, among which the most famous food in Singapore.
This is where you can taste deliciously cooked chili crab – the most famous dish in Singapore. Do not be afraid of the name “chili” – this dish is not so spicy. The whole secret is in a special sauce, in which a huge crab is drowning, like in rich borscht. The sauce is made from garlic, onions, ginger, sesame oil, black rice vinegar, sugar, tomato paste, chili peppers, eggs, and rice flour are also added.
