Fitness Trainer Takes Over Parents’ Popular Longtime Wanton Mee Stall In AMK
The second-gen hawker reopened Pong Noodle Village – once called Mei Ji Wanton Mee – after a seven-year hiatus.
Pong Noodle Village may sound unfamiliar, but Mei Ji Wanton Mee is a well-known name among Ang Mo Kio residents. The hawker stall at Blk 338 AMK Ave 1 has been around since the ’80s, but closed in 2015. Stall owner Low Ah Sim, 66, who worked at the stall with her husband Pong Seng Hock, 60, had suffered a fall and fractured her arm, which made her unable to work.
But seven years later, the couple’s son Zack Pong (who towers over his parents at 1.86m), 32, is reviving his folks’ wanton mee business. In February this year, he reopened Mei Ji Wanton Mee at Teck Ghee Court Market & Food Centre, just a few blocks away from its original location. He also renamed it Pong Noodle Village after his family’s surname (but more about that later).
