Two humble food stalls in Singapore became the first street vendors to receive a Michelin star last week. These Michelin-starred stalls were included among the dining venues of the new Singapore guide.
Singapore is the first south-east Asian country in the world, and the fourth in Asia, awarded by the Michelin Guide.
The owner of one of the food stalls was very delighted with the international award and expects it will stimulate young people to run the hawker food business which actually is managed by senior chefs.
The stalls recognized by a Michelin-star have not immediate intention to raise the price of their dish so they don’t reach the high levels of the Michelin-star prices.
There are other Asian countries that have been recognized by the Michelin guide such as Tokyo becoming the first Michelin-starred ramen noodle bar in the world. The modest seat-avenue with low prices was rated for its amazing foodie options.
And a Japanese ramen restaurant had been crowned with a star Michelin. Of course, it was unexpected because ramen has been regarded as cheap and tasty fast food. And I thought it was a good idea to have Michelin modest restaurants with a cheap menu where customers are seduced by the quality of a bowl of noodles. It’s not easy to make good ramen because the noodles are alive so they can absorb too much water or become too wet.
So maybe expensive restaurants aren’t always the best restaurants because local restaurants with bargain prices can make dishes which are exceptional using the high quality of ingredients and unusual flavours in order to make something new. So foodie food isn’t linked to price.
