Singapore soya-sauce chicken chain for Taipei
Singapore’s soya-sauce chicken hawker outlet is heading overseas with Taipei as its first stop.
The Michelin star restaurant’s Taiwanese debut will be at Hoyii North Station in the first half of this year.
Owner Chan Hon Meng says he is excited to share Singapore’s food culture with the rest of the world, and hopes this will encourage more young people to join the hawker profession.
Like Hawker Chan, which opened in Smith Street in November, the Taipei outlet will be a quick-service restaurant.
Chan’s signature soya-sauce chicken dish earned a one-star rating in the inaugural Singapore Michelin Guide last July. His hawker stall at Chinatown Food Complex is touted as the cheapest Michelin-starred food establishment in the world, with its award-winning noodles selling at only S$2.50 (US$1.76).
If the Taipei branch succeeds, Chan hopes to next expand into Malaysia.
