The same company responsible for car tires began reviewing eateries in 1926 and issues an annual guide for select cities, nominally for upscale and expensive shingles.

But the guide is hardly elitist: This week, word circulated that they had awarded a star to Chan Hon Meng, a street food vendor at the Chinatown Complex in Singapore. From a tiny cubicle in an open-air food court, Meng serves some of the most delicious chicken and noodles around. His trademark dish—chicken slathered in a Hong Kong-style soya sauce—is just $1.50 per plate, the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world.

“When I received the invitation, I was uncertain,” he told a Michelin videographer. “I asked, ‘Are you joking? Why would Michelin come to my stall?’”

The notoriety has increased business by an additional 30 chickens per day, up from the usual 150. If you want to sample the dish, you might want to bring a snack; the stall is usually surrounded by a queue of people, some of whom wait several hours for a taste.
