Hong Kong chain Tsui Wah’s first outlet in South-east Asia will open in Singapore on June 15, in partnership with Jumbo Group.
The cha chan teng (coffee shop-style) outlet in Clarke Quay will seat more than 140 customers and serve signature items including milk tea, crispy bun with condensed milk and curries, say the partners.
For months, chefs from Tsui Wah in Hong Kong have been training staff in Singapore, and some of the chefs will stay on.
Tsui Wah in Singapore is a franchise by Vista F&B Services, a JV between Tsui Wah Holdings and Jumbo Group, which is behind Jumbo Seafood restaurants.
Funded in Mong Kok in 1967, Tsui Wah has 70 outlets in Hong Kong, Macau and China, and is known for its Cantonese-style comfort food.
