About Liao Fan Hawker Chan – The World First Hawker Michelin-starred Meal

Hawker Chan’s culinary journey began during in his daily preparation for the family’s meals. The early exposure to cooking developed his passion to cooking.

The foundation of Chef Chan’s culinary passion was based strongly on the belief that good food should be made simple and affordable. At a tender age of 15, he left school and his hometown to Singapore in search of work. During these early years of his apprenticeship under a Hong Kong chef, he learned and developed the soya sauce chicken recipe. In 2009, Chef Chan started Liao Fan Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle in Chinatown Complex Food Centre.

He started his hawker stall because he wanted a change from the more common Hainanese-style chicken rice, where the chicken is typically poached and chilled. Instead, he first cooks the chicken in the Cantonese style of siu mei, where meats are typically roasted in a wood-burning rotisserie oven. He has since perfected his craft for over 30 years—it’s no wonder that his dishes have always been a favourite with locals, boasting hour-long queues during peak hours even before the stall received the coveted Michelin nod.

The award of one Michelin Star from Michelin Guide Singapore in July 2016 gave him great pride. It was beyond his imagination that his humble soya sauce receipt would be recognized by the most prestigious Michelin Guide and to receive the titles of “The World First Hawker Michelin-starred Meal” and “The Cheapest Michelin-starred Meal In The Word”.Website: can also view his Michelin-star story here:
