Managing an entire food stall solo is no easy task, particularly when there’s no support staff available and you have to do everything on your own.
Nevertheless, in Bedok, one man appears to handle it all with exceptional finesse.
33-year-old Andy Week, who runs Meaty Western Cuisin in Bedok at Block 539 Bedok North Street 3, runs hi stall from 2 pm to 2 am daily, except for Tuesdays.
This translates into relentless, grueling hours as he serves up delectable Western hawker delights to eager patrons.
Meaty Western Cuisine boasts a tantalizing array of Western fare, featuring items like grilled chicken chop, steak, chicken cutlet burgers laden with nacho cheese, and more.
Despite the solitary endeavor, Andy ensures his customers are treated to meals that are both mouthwatering and fulfilling.
Survives on 5 hrs of sleep daily
Back in 2017, Andy Wee initially launched his stall with the noble intention of securing a better income for his wife from China, who aspired to seek Permanent Residency (PR) in Singapore.
Despite his best intentions, their marriage eventually dissolved. Nevertheless, Andy’s commitment and devotion to his food stall remained unwavering.
Andy’s unwavering dedication to his stall comes at a personal cost. He manages just five hours of sleep nightly, retiring at 4 am and rising early to prepare for the day ahead.
He’s foregone personal hobbies and outings, channeling his energy entirely into the operation of his unassuming Western food stall. His exceptional commitment renders him the sole provider for his family.
What distinguishes Andy’s stall is not solely the food’s quality but also its affordability. Patrons can relish a hearty grilled chicken chop for a mere S$7.50 or indulge in a chicken cutlet burger infused with nacho cheese for just S$8.
For those seeking a special culinary experience, Andy presents Australian marbled steak paired with his homemade sauce, an offering that has garnered acclaim as being on par with, if not surpassing, the fare at most Michelin-starred restaurants.
