Michelin One Star - The Original Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle (Now Known As Hawker Chan) @ Chinatown Complex Hawker Centre [Singapore]

Many friends have warned me; don't bother with the air-conditioned outlet of Hawker Chan at Chinatown even though it hailed from the same guy given the highly acclaimed michelin star for its soy sauce chicken rice! 

I did heed their advice and decide to check out the original stall at Chinatown Complex Food Centre instead. Now, it's hard for me to come to this decision as i ALWAYS go back to Kazan Japanese Cuisine in the same hawker centre when i am in the vicinity.

However, i was in luck as there was no queue! 

Turned out i had missed the queue that's opposite the stall; damn! Thankfully, it wasn't insanely long (about 12 persons ahead of me) since it's already past the busy lunchtime and i estimated my wait to be about 10-15 minutes; which honestly wasn't that bad. 

It's good to know that the stall limits the number of packets that one can take away! I have ever encountered a person in front of me (of another hawker centre) who ordered more than 20 packets! That's really frustrating as all i wanted was one plate yet i had to endure my hunger for an extra 20 over minutes! 

Tadah - the cheapest michelin-star food in the whole world and even for a local, the S$2 a plate is rare even for our usual roast / steamed chicken rice sold in neighbourhood stalls.

The dark, savoury sauce was the appetising, braised kind that i would love to have on every single grain of my rice but that aside, it's more important to evaluate the soya sauce chicken. My teeth sank into a piece of the meat and the tenderness of it caught me by surprise! 

It wasn't oily and so delicious; i was deliberating between licking the bones clean or joining the queue to buy another half a soya sauce chicken! If quality has indeed dropped after they secured the michelin star, i really can't imagine how much better it was in the past!
