It’s a case of Newton Hawker Centre to California, USA! Founder Mr Lau Thye Hong started his family business in 1970, specializing in local delights Fried Prawn Noodles, Char Kway Teow and Fried Oyster omelette. What he has been doing differently from the rest is he serves his fare on Opei leaves, strongly believing that the leaves have a unique ability to bring out the full flavour of the fried dishes. Opei leaves are from the bark of Palm Trees, specially imported from Malaysia and Indonesia.
“It’s best to wrap the food 15 minutes before savouring “shared Mr Lau himself and he must be right as an average of 500 portions of his signature dishes are sold every day!
What’s more, last year, Mr Lau was hand picked by the Singapore Tourism Board to showcase his Char Kway Teow as one of our nation’s most celebrated local specialities at the Culinary Institute of America in California!
