Well-loved 24-hour bak chor mee joint Yan Kee Noodle House along Circular Road, a supper hotspot among the club-going set (back when clubbing was still a thing), is the latest F&B brand to shut its doors. It’s most famous for its dry bak chor mee sua.
The eatery, which has been around 2008, initially operated from a single stall at kopitiam BK Eating House just across the road, before relocating to its larger, standalone air-conditioned premises after a dispute (more on that later) in 2018. Like other F&B joints around the world, their business was likely to have taken a hit during the pandemic.
After all, customers from nearby bars and clubs would have thinned considerably since nightlife as we knew it has been off-limits since March 28 last year.
