Michelin-starred restaurants have long been reserved for the few with a large price to pay for exclusive fine dining. But according to travel booking platform Traveloka, treating yourself to a world-famous meal needn’t cost an entire month’s wages.

The website scoured the globe for the 50 most affordable Michelin-starred hotspots and two of them are right here in the UK.

According to research, the cheapest meal can be found at Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle – a now-famous street food stall in Singapore. With prices starting from £1.70 and a humble exterior, the tourist pitstop is never short of queues.

Unsurprisingly, the rest of the definitive list is dominated by Asian restaurants scattered across Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, China and Taiwan. Most notably, Tim Ho Wan’s dim sum will cost a refreshing £3.

Over in Europe, the most affordable Michelin grub on offer is available over at L’Antic Moli in Spain where the set lunch menu will cost you an average of £12.80. For US foodies, the most purse-friendly meal can be ordered at Al’s Place in San Francisco for £13.60.
