Chicken has always been part of the Filipino dining tables. Whether it’s fried, grilled, or roasted, Filipinos love their chicken.

This might be the reason why a lot of foodies are hyped about the opening of the first-ever Liao Fan Hawker Chan branch in Manila. Who wouldn’t be excited when this Michelin-starred restaurant from Singapore is now serving its signature dishes in Manila?

Hawker Chan is one of the only two hawker stalls to earn a Michelin star in the world, offering their savory signature Soya Sauce Chicken With Noodle and Soya Sauce Chicken With Rice for a low price.

Most Michelin-starred restaurants you know have quite an expensive menu, given the quality of their food is top-notch. However, at Hawker Chan, you get high-quality food at a very affordable price.

They recently opened their first-ever Manila branch at the Entertainment Mall of SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

Humble beginnings

Hawker Chan’s chef Chan Hong Meng started as a tiny food stall in Singapore’s Chinatown Complex back in 2009. It’s a humble eatery with lines of customers waiting to taste their Hong Kong style roasted Soya Sauce Chicken. With his 30-year old recipe, he turned the small business into an international sensation in 2016. Chef Chan has opened a bigger restaurant and thus, Liao Fan Hawker Chan was born.

It has opened some branches abroad like Thailand, Indonesia, and Australia, and now the restaurant has opened its first store in the country.

Hawker Chan’s Manila branch has a casual dining setup, with minimalist wooden tables and chairs for customers. Orders are taken at the counter. After your ticket number flashes on the screen, claim your order.

Affordable world-class chicken

Soya Sauce Chicken With Rice (P128) is one of the tastiest affordable world-class meals you can taste in your life. The chicken melts in your mouth, the glaze of the sauce hugs the chicken skin almost to a crisp. Expect a sweet flavor that will be balanced out by rice, pickled chili or sambal.

If you’re not into rice, you may choose the Soya Sauce Chicken With Noodles instead. The contrast of the sweet chicken and the hint of saltiness of the egg noodle certainly highlights the chicken even better.

You can even customize the meal that you want, there are add-ons such as the smoky pork barbecue chunks Char Siu.

Hawker Chan offers an excellent and affordable food option for those looking for a world-class Singaporean hawker food without emptying your pockets.
