Satay street vendor ‘Ah Pui’ suffers illness relapse 2 weeks after reopening stall

AH PUI DOESN’T REMOVE

That said, Ah Pui won’t be retiring anytime soon. Although he will eventually stop working at the grill (because being surrounded by heat and smoke for hours can’t help his condition), Seng said Ah Pui “prefers to go down to the stall because he doesn’t want to stay.” at home.” And he added: “He will continue to come down to perform light tasks”, such as cutting meat. Seng marinates the pork.

Until they find a replacement, Ah Pui and Seng take turns grilling the satay. “Sometimes the uncle makes a barbecue in the middle of the road and he asks me to take charge, because he needs to rest,” Seng shared.

REVISED OPENING HOURS

Due to exceptionally long queues, Ah Pui Satay has revised its opening hours to 1pm-10pm and 3pm-5pm (or until sold out). They have also put up a sign informing customers of the one-hour wait time.

Despite the overwhelming response, Seng said they have not yet recouped their investment as they have only been open for half a month, but he hopes to be able to do so soon.

“Now the main problem is that I am trying to increase the number of satays we can sell,” Seng said. If all goes well, he added that he and Ah Pui hope to expand their business to open more hawker stalls in the future.

Ah Pui Satay is at #01-13 Blk 75 Lor 5 Toa Payoh Food Centre, 75 Lor 5 Toa Payoh, Singapore 310075. Tel: 8393 1669. More information via their Facebook and instagram.
