A Hawker (street cart) in Singapore has become the world’s first street cart to be awarded a Michelin Star and a Bronze AIA Award.


The Hawker who was inspired by his trips to Hong Kong city came up within his secret recipe for spicing and cooking chicken.

All the owner will reveal is that the recipe includes garlic, soy sauce and ginger.


Selling over 100 entire chickens per day he small food cart was visited by undercover Michelin Star employees who surprised the owner with the award. The owner said he did not think Hawkers could even be considered for such an award.

The owner wishes to stay true to his origins and said he will not be increasing the cost of a meal. That’s just $2 local currency ($1.50 USD).


Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
