I was selling Harley bikes before working as a full-time cook. It really started out as an interest more than anything else because I used to always watch my mom cook!
Slowly, we opened up a family run restaurant at Joo Chiat. It was good. We managed to stay on for 3 years before deciding to move somewhere else because rent became increasingly expensive. Our next move was to Singapore Poly and now we’re here in Amoy!
Ever since we relocated, we’ve been meeting ex-students who work around the area. So there is always a nice sense of familiarity especially in the midst of the hectic lunch rush. It takes a lot of time to build up your customer base, but it’s very fulfilling once the hard part is over.
