Want to enjoy a nice tze char meal and also satisfy your mala xiang guo cravings at the same time? Visit 7 Wonders to experience the best of both worlds! For their Tze Char dishes, my favourites were the super appetising Curry Fish Head ($25) that went really well with rice, the flavourful Double-Cooked Pork ($10, $14, $18) and the Buttermilk Cheese Prawn ($20, $25, $30) that featured fresh prawns in a rich & creamy sauce! I had mixed feelings about the Chili Crab (1 crab for $30, 2 for $50) though; the crab was fresh and came with free mantous (fried buns) but personally found the sauce too sweet for my liking. For Mala Xiang Guo, each 100g of ingredients (no matter meat, seafood or vegetables) is priced affordably at $1.99 with hotpot base at just $1. With a wide variety of fresh ingredients to choose from, this is easily one of the most value for money mala xiang guo you can get! They are conveniently located at 236 Upper Thomson Road, within waking distance from Marymount Mrt Station.

It is pretty similar to the Fried Nam Yee Pork 南乳炸肉, however, it tastes much better than the Fried Nam Yee Pork, as it is well marinated and serve with a generous portion of crispy fried garlic. I believe it is a perfect snack to pair with a glass of cold beer!

Commercialised Michelin-Starred Hawker Food This is the place where you can have the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred meal. Up to this day, it continues to attract long queues at its original stall although it’s now commercialised. Prices start from $2.80 and it’s served with either rice or noodles. I had the soy sauce chicken, roasted pork and char siew noodle ($6.80). The soy sauce chicken was tender (possibly cause I had the drumstick) but it’s certainly not the best I tried. Char siew here is prepared Hong Kong-style which was a balance of fat and meat with the edges nicely caramelised. As for the roasted pork, the skin is crispy and the meat is tender which was not bad. Noodles are springy and is served in a mix of lard and sambal belachan. In my opinion, I feel the char siew and roasted pork are better than the soy sauce chicken. For all the hype and accolades, there are better stalls out there who are more deserving of them.
Michelin doesn't always mean amazing. Honestly, the branches severely disappointed me, but an opportune short queue allowed me to try the OG; the branches do no justice to the brand name β€” it's way better here. - The soy chicken noodles ($3.30) had a decent bounciness, well complemented by the sauce and chili. The chicken was tender, though a tad too tough, and carried a good amount of flavour and fragrance. Good but not amazing or Michelin star good. - Is it worth the queue? Opt for Maria Virgin Chicken instead, it's in the same compound β€” better and has no queue. ----- πŸ“ 335 #02-126 Smith St, Complex Market & Food Centre, Singapore 050335 ⏱️ (Mon-Sat) 10.30am-8.30pm; closed on Sundays
I Like It With Rice πŸ˜„ The cheapest Michelin star dish in Singapore and purportedly, the world, is a humble plate of Cantonese-style soya sauce chicken from β€œLiao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle”. It is served with either rice or noodles and most people seem to opt for the latter but I prefer the former. Even though it comes splashed with the same dark sauce used to cook the chicken, I find rice more ideal as it’s a less intrusive sidekick to the juicy, tender flesh of the fragrant and very flavourful chicken. If you want a more authentic dining experience, I recommend checking out the original hawker stall located inside Chinatown Smith Street Market and Food Centre located at 335 Smith Street #02-126. Be prepared to queue though.
