Despite Slow Biz, Maxwell Hawker Sells $2.50 Soupy Claypot Bak Chor Mee To Cater To Seniors

Maxwell Food Centre’s proximity to the CBD makes it a popular haunt for white-collar workers looking for great hawker grub at equally great prices. Still, it’s rare to find a bowl of food there that’s as cheap — or even cheaper — than what you’d find in the heartlands.

Ah Gong Minced Pork Noodle, run solely by 66-year-old hawker Chow Lee Feng, recently caught the attention of netizens for selling a $2.50 bowl of bak chor mee. 8days.sg speaks to the hawker — who specialises in the soup version of the dish — as well as her 39-year-old daughter Nan Tan (who works as a property agent and replied most of our queries as her mum’s unofficial spokesperson).
