Tucked away in a quiet corner of this slightly ulu kopitiam in Woodlands is Ain Popiah Basah, which proudly proclaims to be Vietnamese-Muslim owned. The cheerful family business offers halal rojak, popiah and, unusually, beef pho, and the stall is a little bit hard to spot (hint: it’s next to the drinks stall). The owners are husband-and-wife Mohd Azwan, 35, and Ain, 33. Ain is Vietnamese, having moved to Singapore from Ho Chi Minh City twelve years ago. She met Azwan, who used to work in security, shortly after and the duo have been married eleven years now with two kids.
