- If you don’t bring your own egg, you can still get a plate for $2.50!
We’ve all heard – or told – the food stories of the good ol’ times over the dinner table. Tales of the 30-cents bowl of noodles bought from a roadside stall? Check. Recounts of the now-mythical ice ball, gloriously colourful and drenched in sugar-sweet syrup? Check. Our favourite, though, has to be the stories about bringing your own eggs to zichar stalls for a cheaper plate of carrot cake or char kway teow.
So we were pretty stoked to find out about this char kway teow stall offering $2 char kway teow this National Day – provided you provide your own eggs!
Blast from the Past
Owner of Liang Ji, Dominic Neo, is holding this promotion this National Day because he wants to keep the old memories alive.
“I really hope to bring back the olden [days’] memories (bring [your] own egg) to our new generations,” he shared in a Facebook post published on 19 July. He also added that doing so is a way to “[preserve our] … culture”. And he’s done similar promotions before – previous years have seen him offering char kway teow at just 50 cents for customers who brought their own eggs.
He’s not able to do that this year, but at $2 a plate, bringing your own egg to Liang Ji still seems like a pretty good deal! Also, you get to sit in a comfortable air-conditioned food court while chowing down on your plate of $2 sweet-savoury goodness – what’s not to like?
If you don’t want to bring your own egg, you can still get your char kway teow at $2.50 – which is still pretty great!
Neo says his objective for having the promotion is in part to thank “loyal supporters and friends” who have kept his business going all these years, too, which is truly heartwarming.
