“Thankful! This post worked. Saw a queue at the stall this afternoon,” said Facebook user Vicky Chan.

“The uncle really makes an effort to fry the food in small batches, so they are well cooked. Even though he goes around with a bit of a limp, he endures the physical difficulties to continue with the tedious frying process,” shared Elan T.G.

According to The FAT OWL, Singapore, the stall was sold out on Tuesday around noon. “I went there at 12.30 pm to queue. After queueing for 10 minutes and almost reach my turn, the old auntie said sold out for the day.”
