Chan Hon Meng is the master chef behind “Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle,” the food cart home to the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world.

So that's $150 a day at the Hawker stall, less what he paid for his chickens, and the cost of the added ingredients and the power required to cook them and staff costs. If this was Dragons Den, I'm afraid I would be out! Plus I'm a vegetarian, poor chickens. <3
