The ‘Circuit Breaker’ period has dealt a tough blow on many local businesses, who’ve had to either close completely or find alternative avenues to operate.
For small establishments like this fishball noodle stall in Redhill, adapting to the changes have been hard.
Probably unaware of how to take his business online, the middle-aged uncle who runs it has had to rely on the few walk-in customers daily.
Before the Covid-19 outbreak, the many offices and car showrooms in the area meant that the stall welcomed a steady stream of diners daily.
But with many workplaces asking employees to work from home, the customer base went away with them, leaving the fishball noodle stall high and dry.
With few customers and no orders flying out for delivery, business was terribly slow throughout the nearly 2-month long ‘Circuit Breaker’.
As a result of that, the uncle running the stall has been struggling to keep it open, and needs all the help he can get.
Of course, the only solution for that is to physically visit his stall to get some noodles.
If you need a good reason to go, perhaps the glowing reviews from former customers would convince you. Several of them commented on a post in Facebook group Hawkers United – Dabao 2020.
Here’s a photo of what you can expect when you order a bowl of their signature noodles. Minced meat noodles are also on the menu if you prefer that.
The noodles are so good that they became the focus of an entire article in The Straits Times (ST) in 2018. A bowl cost $3 then, which likely hasn’t changed much.
If you’re raring to support the uncle and keep his business open, here are some important details you should note:
Address: Seng Hong Coffee Shop, 58 Lengkok Bahru, Singapore 150058
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 7am-2.30pm, Sat & Sun 7.30am-1.30pm
Nearest MRT station: Redhill
We hope the uncle will start getting more customers again, so his business will improve.
