June 24th, 2017. Famous for their motto: The Cheapest Michelin-Starred Meal in The World, Hawker Chan finally opened in Jakarta. Yaaaaaay. I heard about their famous restaurant in Singapore. When it came to Jakarta, I was very happy. I was invited to their pre-opening last Monday but could’t come. So today I asked hubby to keep me company visiting the place.
Located above Tim Ho Wan, we can go upstair with elevator or stairs. Lucky us, we came around 11am, so we didn’t have to queue. Not very spacious place, just a typical clean and simple chinese restaurant. We met Eve and Ika *nice to meet you ladies* and they helped us choosing the menu. Anyway, I was curious about the Liao Fan. What’s the meaning of it? I forgot to ask them. Well, if I had a chance to ask them, I will update here.
Chan Hon Meng, the founder of Hawker Chan: As my first post on Instagram, I want to encourage all Hawkers in Singapore to continue learning, experimenting and improving the taste and quality of their food. I never thought that hawker food would be recognised by the Michelin guide. It was a surprise, a good one in fact. In short, I wish that all my fellow Hawkers would be motivated and strive to achieve the Michelin award in the years to come. Thank you everyone, my family, friends and customers for your continuous support!
Soya Sauce Chicken Rice 28k
Tender meat with delicious flavour. I was in love with this dish at the first bite. Well-seasoned chicken with perfect texture of rice and proper portion. The price is just right. Not expensive at all. I think I will be back to order this and not sharing.
Char Siew Hor Fun 52k
It’s my hubby’s choice. Hor fun is one of our favourite dish. And they told us that their favourite was always the char siew. So yeah, we ordered this char siew hor fun, and we didn’t sorry at all. It’s just excellent with ideal portion to company our chicken rice. Recommended.
3 Combination Platter 100k
This was dabomb. And yes, the char siew were perfecto! I didn’t even share it with my hubby. He could have his char siew at his hor fun LOL. I gave almost all of the roasted pork and the pork rib to him hahahaha.. But the char siew, all mine! Very recommended dish for you who loves those porky pigs.
Wonton Soup 36k
Delicious but not very very very special. Impeccable texture with flavourful broth. If you love soup dishes, you should order this one. Tender and delicate wonton with delicious meat inside the wonton.
A wonton (also spelled wantan, or wuntun in transcription from Cantonese; Mandarin: húndun or húntun) is a type of dumpling commonly found in a number of Chinese cuisines.
AIYU Aloe Vera 16k
It’s very simple dessert. Just aloe vera in a jelly. But it’s a perfect dessert to end our big happy meal today. Deliciously refreshing and healthy dessert, for sure.
Congratulations Hawker Chan Indonesia! Cannot wait to visit your next outlet! Please make it nearby my place! LOL.
