The response was almost immediate when chef Chan Wing Kin, former executive chef of Crystal Jade Culinary Concept Holdings for eighteen years, opened a HK-style wanton mee hawker stall in Yishun in September. His eponymous biz Chef Kin HK Wanton Noodle drew snaking queues that lasted up to one-and-a-half hours long – despite being in a nondescript kopitiam deep in the heartlands. Lines have since abated to a more manageable 30 to 40 minutes at peak meal times, the stall’s PR rep tells us.
Now, there’s no need to go all the way to Yishun — Chef Kin HK Wanton Noodle will soon be launching two new outlets. The first stall will open at a kopitiam along New Upper Changi Road in Bedok on November 26, with the second beginning operations on December 14 at a coffee shop in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4.
All three outlets are solely owned by the Hong Kong-born chef-turned-hawker.
