Quiet CBD mall Havelock II is turning out to be quite the hotspot for home-based businesses looking to spread their wings. Meet one-month-old Ten Tenths, a compact 10-seater offering “Cantonese-style” rice bowls topped with har cheong gai, sio bak and char siew. It joins the likes of fusion Portuguese egg tart store Mother-In-Law Egg Tart and fellow char siew specialist Char Seal Bar  – both once also HBBs – in the mall.

Dorcas Gan, 40, runs the show alongside business partner Jeffery Ting, 39 – but it’s her younger brother, Wilson (below, far left), 38, who calls the shots in the kitchen. The latter worked as a chef several years ago manning the barbecue station at Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant in Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel for two years. He also held a similar post for another two years at TungLok Signatures restaurant in Clarke Quay.

If you’re wondering about Ten Tenths’ unusual name, Dorcas explains that it is translated from shi fen shi, which means 10 out of 10 in mandarin.
