This month, the world’s first Michelin-starred street food trader, Hawker Chan and Bib Gourmand winning A Noodle Story were flown in to KERB King’s Cross (via Singapore Air) to serve you all lunch for three days.

Thank you to everyone who came down to be part of this cross-continental kerbside flavour-fest! 1800 char siew rice dishes and Singapore-style ramens later… here’s what happened:

And some close-ups of the day.

Slickening that char siew pork belly with Chan’s hot, hot chilli

Hawker Chan’s wife, Madam Irene Quek, on board (we needed her there for  #internationalwomensday ?)

Four hours later – almost at the front of the line

The first time Singapore-style ramen has been served on UK soil. Here’s A Noodle Story’s lava egg, chilli, pork chashu and deep fried wonton Bib-Gourmand winning dish.

…topped with boiled prawn and pork wontons (hands down one of the best dumplings we’ve eaten).


KERBanist, Rosie from Smokin Lotus tracked them down  on her travels this summer and was made up that they found her this time.

A Noodle Story founders, Gwern Khoo and Ben Tham, who started their  business in 2013. In true Singaporean style, they graciously handed out buckets of wontons to our traders after service. Now, the question we wonton know is will they be back next year…?

#KERBSingapore for all your tagged photos, and a big shout out to Iwona [SUPERFAN] who came through to see Hawker Chan two years on the trot:
