Chan Hong Men, the world’s first Michelin-star street chef, is bringing his delicious cooking to the capital for a limited time only.

The acclaimed chef, otherwise known as Hawker Chan, will be flying from Singapore to serve up his signature “soya sauce chicken rice” box at KERB King’s Cross market.

For a Michelin-star chef, the dish that is going to be on offer at the market is delightfully affordable.

At £6 a box, Londoners will be bagging themselves a bargain with this tasty lunchtime meal.

However, you’ll have to head to the market fast if you want to get your hands on one.

There will only be 200 portions available per day from 12 until two in the afternoon from Wednesday until Friday this week.

In 2016, he became the first street food chef in the world to achieve a Michelin star.

“It’s an honour to host the world’s first Michelin star street food trader at King’s Cross,” said Ian Dodds, head of KERB Markets.

“We also hope this builds a wider conversation about the growing quality of street food in London - as it becomes more and more a part of life throughout the city we see no reason why one or two in London’s swelling hawker ranks couldn’t received the same accolade.”

Chan is the chef and owner of Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle, a stall situated in Chinatown in Singapore.

The stall in King’s Cross has been designed to emulate the original in Singapore.

People who head to the market this week will also have the opportunity to take part in a competition, which could see them win the chance to visit the original stall in Singapore courtesy of Singapore Airlines.
