21-Year-Old NSman Sells Restaurant-Quality Pizza & American Barbecue From Home
To think he learned how to cook from YouTube.
Most NSmen spend their weekends chilling out with friends and girlfriends, getting some rest after a hard week in camp. Not Hendra Yeo. The 21-year-old spends his free time flipping pizzas and tending to hunks of beef short ribs in hulking smokers in the backyard of his family’s semi-detached home in Kembangan. This is where he operates his home-based business, Cuts & Slices.
Pizzas and American-style barbecue (where meats are smoked at low temperatures over a long period of time) are his passion. So much so that in the space of three years, he’s bought three pizza ovens and two smokers using his savings and his salary from NS. “Honestly, I don’t spend much on other things,” he says shyly.
