Hai Kee Teochew Cha Kua Teow (sic)

You know it’s a good plate of greasy, lardy goodness when the queue’s already twenty long when you get there, and there are people in line in front of you who know how long it’s gonna take, and have taken the trouble of bringing a book along to read.

It’s not that long, really, the wait. Barring family representatives who order by bulk, usually just before it’s your turn, you usually get your plate / packet before you figure out how much money Mr Hai Kee Cha Kua (sic) Teow makes in a day.
