Known for its history and rich tradition, the Chinatown Food Street also serves the success stories of its tenants such as Famous Eunos Bak Chor Mee, which originated in the 1920s. 

Ex-banker Ler Jiewei is currently the fifth generation hawker for the bak chor mee stall which he took over from his parents. Remaining faithful to the recipe and ingredients, he has gone on to perfect the recipe that was passed down from his great-great grandfather.
