Hawker Chan, Singapore's Michelin-starred street food vendor, officially opened its first outlet in Jakarta on June 20.
The eatery is located on the second floor of Tim Ho Wan, a Hong Kong-based Michelin-starred dim sum chain, in Pantai Indah Kapuk, North Jakarta.
Hawker Chan is a spin-off of a food stall named Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle. Founded by Chang Hong Men, the food stall, which is located at Singapore's Chinatown Food Complex, caught the public's attention after receiving a One-Michelin star in the Singapore Michelin Guide 2016. The eatery was later recognised as the world's cheapest Michelin-starred meal.
Similar to Hawker Chan's Singapore outlets, the Jakarta branch serves the restaurant's signature dishes, including soya sauce chicken rice, soya sauce chicken noodle and more, with price starting from Rp 28,000 (US$2.10).
The restaurant's marketing manager told kompas.com that the eatery gets most of its ingredients from Singapore, but also sources local produce that meet their requirements.
Meanwhile, Hawker Chan's business development brand staff Evelyn said the Jakarta's outlet employs a local chef who received intensive training in Singapore.
"After opening [the outlet], chef Chan still [oversees] the operation," she added.
