Shiok Curry Mee At Toa Payoh Hawker Stall By “Chinese Girl From An Indian Village”
The stall owner is in fact, from Myanmar. Confused yet?
Since relocating to Singapore over two decades ago, Myanmar-born F&B entrepreneur Melody Yen, 45, has worked at and opened various shops selling iconic local dishes like wanton mee and bak kut teh.
Her one-year-old hawker stall at a Toa Payoh food centre – Melody Curry Chicken Noodle – marks Melody’s first venture selling a dish from her hometown Lashio in northern Shan State, Myanmar. The dish, curry chicken noodle, is based on a curry recipe that she grew up eating. “I’ve always felt close ties to my roots in Myanmar and I wanted to introduce my hometown dish to customers in Singapore. Curry is already a popular food here, and our version has a unique taste that would be interesting for people here to try,” shares the Singaporean PR in mandarin.
