One Year After Being A Hawker, Ex-SIA Steward Expands Lor Bak Stall & Sells Bak Kut Teh
While many airline cabin crew members turned to making a living in the F&B industry amid pandemic-driven border closures, ex-Singapore Airlines flight steward Alvan Chew’s hawker story began differently. The 30-year-old left his job in 2019, before Covid-19 hit, plunging headfirst into a gig at his friend’s braised meat hawker stall despite having no culinary skills to speak of back then.
The millennial towkay recently relocated to a “substantially bigger stall” in Maxwell Food Centre on January 1, expanding his menu to include deep-fried chicken cutlet rice bowls with mentaiko (spicy cod roe) sauce and bak kut teh.
