Singapore has the cheapest restaurant with the coveted Michelin stars: Hong Kong Soy Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle, which is going to open in Manila soon. However, there are still a couple of affordable Michelin-starred restaurants in the neighboring countries.

If you’re planning to travel around Asia soon, here are some budget-friendly Michelin-starred spots you can include in your itinerary:


1. Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle

Founded in the 1930s, Tai Hwa Pork Noodles is another hawker stall in Singapore which was awarded with a Michelin star last year. It boasts its SGD$5 or P180 Chinese noodle dish with tender pork and liver slices, dumplings, and fried sole fish in savory vinegar sauce.

2. Ho Hung Kee Congee and Noodle Shop

For just HKD$55 or P350 satisfy your cravings for something soupy with congee and noodles at Ho Hung Kee, the very first wonton-noodles restaurant with a Michelin star. You can choose two ingredients for your bowl of congee from sliced fish, pork liver, salted lean pork to sliced beef, meatballs, and egg.

3. Shinjuku Kappo Nakajima

A lunch set at this cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in Tokyo, a city with a high cost of living, is priced at ¥800 or P362. It mostly specializes in Iwashi or sardines which can be prepared in four different ways (deep fried, nabemono, sashimi, or simmered in dashi). This lunch set includes Japanese rice, pickles, and miso soup.

4. Kam’s Roast Goose

One Michelin-star restaurant Kam’s Roast Goose’s dishes are a bit expensive compared to the other ones in the list. Their roast goose leg with noodles is at HK$97 or P620, and roast goose at HK$270 or P1,720 for half, but they do not disappoint for tender ducks with crispy brown skin. They also offer roast duck with thick Chinese noodle for only HK$55 or P350.

5. Putien Restaurant

Another inexpensive Michelin-starred restaurant is in Singapore, of course. Putien offers their famed heng hwa bee hoon, sundried vermicelli milled by hand, at SGD$8.90 or P320 for a small plate. Its flavors also come from stocks of pork bones and old hens cooked for hours and various infused ingredients.
