Fried Rice Hawker Says Without FB Posts From “Boy-boys & Girl-girls”, Biz Bad
Without FB posts shared by netizens, sales can go below $200 a day, says Egg Fried Rice’s hawker at Amoy St.
Things have been quiet at Amoy Street Food Centre since the pandemic started. The two-storey hawker centre in the middle of the Central Business District is reliant on lunchtime crowds of hungry office drones. These crowds have yet to reach pre-pandemic levels – even after up to 75 percent of staff were allowed back to their workplaces in April. Now, it’s back to work-from-home mode after the heightened alert measures kicked in since May.
The simply-named Egg Fried Rice stall opened at the food centre on earlier this year in March, not long before the dine-in ban. The hawkers behind it are long-time chef Liew Soon Ping, 60 and his 55-year-old wife, Fanny Loh (who declined to be photographed). It’s right beside Soon Heng Porridge.
