Hawker Family Wears Cute Peranakan Outfits Daily To Serve Nonya Chicken Dishes At Pasir Ris Stall
Only two main dishes are sold at Nyonya Pok Pok Kay — Chicken Curry Kapitan and Ayam Sioh.
Decked out in cheery yellow signboards, Nyonya Pok Pok Kay is right at home on the second level of Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre, where you’ll find a cluster of hipster hawker stalls, including a mod seafood congee joint. Fittingly, the cheekily named stall (“pok pok kay” sounds like the clucking of hens) that also bears an illustrated hen logo serves Peranakan set meals featuring chicken dishes like curry kapitan and ayam sioh (chicken in tamarind and coriander gravy).
SHATEC-trained chef, Leon Sng, 56, with assistance from his wife Eleanor, 51, (who was absent during our visit due to a sprained ankle) cooks at the month-old stall owned by his eldest daughter Sarah, 26, who handles everything else from logistics to marketing while learning to cook the dishes. The couple also has two younger daughters. Sharon, 23, is a fresh uni grad and helps out at the stall occasionally.
