Hawker Chan

Hawker Chan was started as an ordinary hawker stall in Singapore by Chef Chan Hong Meng. It became famous when its Soya Sauce Chicken was awarded the Michelin Star. It is now known as the World’s Cheapest Meal to be Awarded One Michelin Star.

Hawker Chan’s Famous Roasts

Hawker Chan has opened multiple branches in the Philippines and one of the branches is located in Ayala Malls Manila Bay. Foodee Global Concepts brought the Hawker Chan to the Philippines.

We had the chance to dine there recently and here’s what we ordered.

Soya Sauce Chicken Rice – Php128.00

For its price, you get to experience what a meal awarded with a Michelin star tastes like. It’s tasty and flavorful. Definitely worth it.

Three Meat Platter – Soya Sauce Chicken, Char Siew and Roast Pork – Php298.00

Getting the Three Meat Platter will let you taste all the signature dishes in one sitting. Add an extra order of rice or vegetable noodles and you’re good to go. This meal is for sharing.

Of course, the Soya Sauce Chicken is so good. I love it. I will choose the Roast Pork over the Char Siew. Tasted better Char Siew. ✌️

Hawker Chan Vegetable Noodles – Php90.00

The vegetable noodles is a better choice than the rice. Its flavorful and it’s healthier. 😉

Beef Brisket Rice – Php158.00

This one’s a little different from their usual roasts, but it’s so tender it almost melts in your mouth.

Bah Kut Teh – Pork Ribs Tea Soup

A Singapore staple, the Bah Kut Teh is a pork rib broth with herbs and spices. Hawker Chan’s version is good especially if you’re feeling a little low and needs an extra boost in your system.

Seasonal Vegetables – Php99.00

Always order a vegetable dish every meal.

Wonton Noodle Soup – Php129.00

This Wonton Soup is not your typical Chinese Resto Wonton Soup. It tastes different so this doesn’t get a thumbs up.

If you’re a fan of Soy Chicken like me, their Soya Sauce Chicken is a must try, pair it with the vegetable noodles though. Plus, they have peanuts as side dish.

Do visit the nearest Hawker Chan near you. They now have 7 branches. Check out their Facebook page Hawker Chan Philippines for promos and updates.

Corner Market @ The Podium

The Podium was just a mini mall until they revamped it and expanded to be the luxury mall it is today.

While it is still mini compared to its Megamall neighbor, it stands on its own. Still many shops are closed but mostly, you go to Podium to eat.

So we are gonna talk about its unique “Food Court!”

On one of its towers, The Corner Market has arrived.

I love this pebbled entrance which says Good Food is Just Around the Corner.

There is a food directory outside so you will not get lost in this maze of good food!

One of the dining areas.

We tried at least 4 of the restos.

1) Ca Phe Saigon – Vietnamese

Cut your own basil leaves and wash.

Vietnamese Noodles with Spring Rolls

2) Bird House Fried Chicken – American

They serve big parts but the breading and spices are too salty for our taste.

Added some sides, kids’ favorite Mac and Cheese and grilled corn on a cob.

3) Char Express – Asian

Their set meal consisted of Char Siew Pork and Rice Toppings plus a bowl of Soup.

I love their Char Siew. I will definitely try their Crunchy Pork Belly and their White Chicken next time.

We ordered an extra Kailan with Garlic.

4) Easy.Tiger – Asian Fusion

Chicken Sate Meal with Bagoong Rice, comes with Papaya Salad and Lemon Grass Juice.

The Bagoong Rice is a little bit fishy (malansa) so I suggest you try other kinds. The Chicken Sate is okay.

This is their Seafood Laksa. Ordered by somebody else. Took a picture while not yet claimed. 😂

Other places to try.

1) Stockwell for coffee

2) Catch of the Day by Cold Storage – seafood paluto (ask them to cook)

You can have lobster at a food court!

Frozen Seafood to take home

3) Gusto – healthy salads

4) Meat Depot Mini – steaks galore

Choose your meat and ask them to cook the way you want it. Comes with sides too!

5) La Taqueria del Chupacabra – Mexican

For your Taco and Salsa needs.

6) Sultan Mediterranean Grill – Kebabs, Falafel, Shawarma

7) Barcelon – Paella

8) Inari – Grill Time

More desserts from:

1) The Rabbit Hole

2) Sundays – to cool off!

So there, go and visit The Podium if you have the time.

More restos to try outside the Corner Market as well.
