The street vendor in Singapore that has a Michelin star is Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle. This street stall is located at 466 Crawford Lane, #01-12 in Singapore. It is a humble and unassuming shop that serves traditional dishes from the Hainanese cuisine.
The owner, Mdm Tang Chay Seng, has been running the business since 1932 and has been serving the same noodle soup dish since then. The noodle soup dish consists of pork ribs with a tomato-based broth and yellow noodles.
In 2016, the Michelin Guide awarded Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle with one star for its delicious food. This makes it the first hawker stall in Singapore to receive a Michelin star.
The award has brought much attention to this humble shop, and customers have been flocking to it ever since. Despite its newfound fame and glory, Mdm Tang still works hard every day to ensure that each bowl of noodles is cooked to perfection just as she’s done for over 80 years.
The success of Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle proves that good food does not need to come from a fancy restaurant or be expensive; it can come from a small street vendor. It also shows us that dedication and passion always pay off in the end.
