I just couldn’t help laughing when K recounted how he had ordered hokkien mee at Sek Yuen. Hokkien mee is one of K’s favourite stir-fried dish and he will ask for it without a second thought, even in a place that serves mainly Cantonese food.
The elderly uncle told him point blank that they don’t serve it and he can always get it from across the road. I can imagine the snubbed look on his elderly face when he said that.
What I like most about Sek Yuen is how it seems almost unchanged through the years. It’s as if this place has stood still in time – from the authentic dishes, wood-fired stoves, retro ceiling fans and furniture, to the quaint wrapping for takeaways.
Here’s hoping it will always stay the same.
