Chef Wei HK Cheong Fun is a newly-opened stall at a coffee shop in Bedok Town Centre.
It is opened by chef Thoo Chang Wei, who has 20 years of experience at dim sum restaurants.
The Malaysian chef started his culinary career at age 18, working at Min Kok Restaurant, a reputable Cantonese eatery in Seremban.
Ex-Peach Garden dim sum master
In 2010, he moved to Singapore where he served as a dim sum chef at the popular Peach Garden Chinese Restaurant.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Thoo decided to venture on his own and start his own business.
As its name suggests, the stall specialises in cheong fun, a rice noodle dish served with sauces and fillings.
He uses four types of flour (potato, chestnut, tapioca and wheat starch) to make the batter for the rice noodle sheet from scratch.
Fillings are then added to the batter before the rolls are served and cooked.
Thoo serves a variety of cheong fun:
Plain Cheong Fun (S$3)
Char Siew Cheong Fun (S$4)
Mushroom Cheong Fun (S$4)
Prawn Cheong Fun (S$5)
209 New Upper Changi Road #01-633 Singapore 460209
Opening hours: 7am to 9pm, daily
