Soy Sauce Chicken Specialist Lee Fun Nam Kee To Shut Toa Payoh Eatery After 55 Years
“Biz has dropped more than 35 percent,” says boss David Lee. He plans to open a humbler hawker stall or kiosk with the help of daughter, MasterChef Singapore runner-up Gen Lee.
Heritage F&B brand Lee Fun Nam Kee (LFNK), famous for its juicy, silky soy sauce chicken, will be shutting its doors in Toa Payoh after 55 years.
Run by second-generation owner David Lee, 57, the family-style eatery is an institution in Toa Payoh. It was started as a hawker stall by his father in 1967 before moving to its current premises below a block of HDB flats a year later.
