Famous Hokkien Mee Stall Yong Huat Closing Down — But Not ’Cos Of Covid-19
After 50 years, the stall at Katong's mod kopitiam Alibabar is closing for good.
Hawker Pang Weng Hong, 66, has been plying his trade at East Coast Road for a long time. So long, he even knows the food cravings veteran actress Xiang Yun had when she was preggers with her two (now adult) kids. “She liked to eat wa ko kueh (Chinese steamed cupcakes), and she and [her husband] Edmund Chen would always go to the stall beside mine to buy them,” recalls the affable uncle.
