Asian-American Solo Traveler INTRODUCTION: HAWKER CHAN TAIPEI

HAWKER CHAN TAIPEI, TAIWAN (了凡油雞飯‧麵), known as the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in Singapore expanded its first overseas operations to Taipei, Taiwan in November 2017. After hearing about it, I decided to try it out with a couple of my friends.

So is the Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodles here worth the hype? 

Asian-American Solo Traveler THE RESTAURANT

The layout of the restaurant is like a modern fast-food joint. Upon walking in, you walk straight to the counter and order your food. Once your order is ready, you pick up your food at the counter and sit at a table of your choice.

There are 4 main-courses that you can choose from, but you can also order additional meats on the side. If you are super hungry, the best combination would be the Soya Chicken (Top left) with either rice or noodles plus a side order of the three meats combination. This way, you can try out everything they have, and the price comes down to ~NT$300-320 (~$10 USD).

Now on to the actual food. Is it Michelin-star quality? 

I enjoyed the flavors of the meats as well as the sauce that was mixed into the noodles. However, the vegetable portion looked sad–Like common, that’s less than one bite! Compared to the food you can find elsewhere around Taipei, I do not think this stands out.

Summary

6.3 Review Score Overall, the food at Hawker Chan is good, but not jaw-dropping. The service is fast enough that you can get in and out of there within 20 minutes. Indeed, it is pretty cheap for a Michelin-starred restaurant, but it is not worth the hype. I can get a lot better food for the same price elsewhere in Taipei. However, if you are still curious, I do recommend giving this place a shot.
