Try the cheapest Michelin star Hawker stall
Where to find the world’s most affordable Michelin star meal? Go to Singapore!
The local food in Singapore is fantastic, and the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred eatery can be found in one of its hawker centers.
Trying its signature dish – Soya Sauce Chicken Rice, has been on my bucket list since I read about it, and I must say that this dish is worth traveling for.
The chicken is soft, juicy, well-marinated, and each bite brings you a fantastic experience. The rice that goes along with it is quite dull and tasteless, in my opinion, so I’d recommend buying a half-chicken to enjoy instead.
Where to find it?
You can either try out the dishes at Mr.Chan’s Hawker stall in the Hawker center or a restaurant opposite the Mall.
The restaurant is located near the entrance of Chinese food street, and there is more space to sit down.
Explore China Town
After finishing the chicken meal, spend some time exploring the rest of China Town.
Wandering around China Town, you can see narrow roads with tons of restaurants serving traditional food or spot the souvenirs shops offering clothes, crafts, and antiques.
At night, don’t forget to visit Club street and enjoy the fancy nightlife with different wine bars and clubs.
Wander around Little India
What I love most about Singapore is its diversity, and you can find it in the area such as Little India. It’s amazing how the area resembles India, from the food to the buildings.
Little India is a perfect place to try tasty Indian food and understand a bit about India through its buildings, temples, and local markets.

Take a picture of Merlion – Singapore Lion Statue

Party at Clark Quay

I had drinks at an all-you-can-drink beer bar in Clark Quay, and their dishes were tasty too!
