3 questions with Tan Yang Choong
1. What do you love most about being a hawker?
It makes passing time very easy. But it is still hard work. The satisfaction comes when I see customers from all over the world coming here to eat my laksa.
2. What’s your favourite local dish?
I like laksa. My brothers and sisters all love laksa too. But I also like fishball noodles, especially the handmade ones but there aren't many stalls left that do things without a machine. I think good food needs to be made from scratch with love.
3. Why do you think your laksa is the best?
I don't think my laksa is the best. That's just what customers say. But there are so many laksa stalls in Singapore that have been around longer than mine.
