[Hong Kong] Some of Singapore’s most popular “Michelin” hawker stalls, including A Noodle Story from Amoy Street Food Centre and Tian Tian Chicken Rice from Maxwell Food Centre have opened up in Hong Kong.
The Singapore Michelin-themed sit-down, full-service restaurant is called “Tian Tian Plus”, located at the prominent Fashion Walk at Causeway Bay (銅鑼灣記利佐治街11-19號).

Co-owner Gwern Khoo from A Noodle Story revealed that many have approached them in seeking a franchise, but he has previously turned them down due to quality control issues.
However, this particular overseas partner “… is different from the others, and very focused on quality.”
Even though this means that there will not be any revenue for the first few months as time is spent on hiring and training, they hope they are off to a good start with the quality control.
The Michelin Bib Gourmand stall is best known for its Singapore-style Ramen.
A bowl consists of tender cha-su, Hong Kong-style wontons, soy-flavoured hot spring egg, crispy potato-wrapped prawn, freshly sliced scallions and red pepper which sit neatly on top of the thin, springy noodles.
Over at Hong Kong, the Deep Fried Shrimp Wanton and Japanese BBQ Pork Noodles is priced at HK88 (SGD15.20) – considered towards the higher side when compared to Singapore’s pricing.
The noodles had a pleasant combination, but it felt like the sauce needed a bit more oomph to appeal to the Hong Kong diners.
The Hong Kong locals who are used to heavier and flavourful food, could find the combination towards the bland side.
Other than A Noodle Story, other stalls to expect at the same space include Tian Tian Chicken Rice, 1950s Coffee and Toast from Chinatown, and Lao Jie Fang Beef Brisket Noodles from Mei Ling Street Food Centre.
