Low End – High End

Tidbits about great food and restaurants on both ends of the spectrum.

Massimmo meet Chan

At the moment 3 Michelin Star chef Massimmo Bottura’s restaurant Osteria Francescana is considered the best in the world and argubly he is considered the world’s best chef. You’ll need to travel to Modena Italy to experience his latest tasting menu featuring some of the most outrageous deconstructions of food anywhere. (We probably won’t be getting a resevation anytime soon so enjoy the images and the snarky comments without the benefit of taste)

(Yes, Pleeze)

This experience will set you back about $250 without wine.

 

On the other side of the globe in Singapore chef Chan Hon Meng just received a Michelin star for his amazingly delicious and cheap soya chicken.

Located in a food stall in Singapore’s Chinatown complex, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles and Rice, is all the rage. There is a no reservations policy and the wait at lunch time is one to two hours.

These plates will set you back around US $2.50.

We are not sure,that Chef Hon Meng who works 17 hours everyday in his stall deconstructing nearly 200 chickens- will be available for interviews;produce an artful food video and book; be the subject of a Netflix documentary and acheive celebrity status like Mr Bottura. But, that highy regarded Michelin star is surely a good start. Check out the video.
