New Zi Char Shop Owner So Grateful For Biz, Writes Thank You Notes To Diners

“My entrance into the F&B industry was an unexpected one,” says 40-year-old Abel Tan. His career was in chartered accountancy — he has been in the industry for 16 years and opened his own accounting firm in 2015, which he still runs, serving mainly SMEs.
Early last year, Abel took over the reins from the previous owner of 36-year-old zi char restaurant Miki Snacks in Katong Shopping Centre after they decided to close down — rebranding it to Happy Wok — he says this is “in order to save the staff from losing their jobs”. He could not retain the Miki name as the previous owner had trademarked it.
