Woon Woon Pek Beehoon

Say you desire a slice of the F&B action, yet can't cook to save your life - what then? Rope in ex-chef dad as quarterback by all means, thereafter staff up around Martin Yan, budget permitting. Given enough time, ceteris paribus, it's ka-ching, ka-ching baby. Easy peasy lemon squeezy......perhaps not. Enter fledgling hawkerpreneur Reece Wong, who together with business confidant Javien boldly bade their flourishing corporate careers adieu and took the plunge to start Woon Woon Pek Beehoon (稳稳白米粉) at Changi Village Food Centre, papa dearest fully on board.

Admittedly they flew high for a brief moment, having also unveiled presences at two other hawker sites (Whampoa Makan Place and Chomp Chomp) in rapid succession whilst incubating an offshoot concept (Fresh Generation, which sold prodigious lobster soups). But Murphy's law socked disproportionately hard, sending them hurtling back to square one; today only the original Changi Village stall remains.

Woon Woon opens daily from 11am-9pm except Mondays. Take heed that its seemingly expansive menu pretty much just touts a vermicelli y seafood dalliance, so don't go expecting the whole nine yards typical of zi char spots.

Sampling and thoughts:

Truculent lass who took orders aside, the dishes attempted (Lala Prawn White Beehoon - $6/$10/$15, Lala Crayfish White Beehoon - $10/$20/$30) though lacking pizzazz were even-keeled pleasant: amorphous swirls of springy beehoon simmering in an unpenetrating, prosaic broth melded rather judiciously with bounteous clams and fleshy enough crustaceans - wok hei vibed emasculated however.

Oh well, guzzling hard seltzers sure helped assuage our half electrified tits.
