Coffee shop bids farewell with a last free meal
Owners of Bugis halal eatery serving free food tomorrow to thank patrons before closing
Tomorrow, Tong Seng Coffeeshop owner Ong Choon Seng is expecting the largest turnout at his halal eatery in its 16-year history.
After all, he is giving away free meals during lunch and dinner to say thank you to his loyal customers before Tong Seng rolls down its shutters for good - another casualty of the manpower crunch.
"We planned the closing to coincide with Hari Raya Haji, so our customers can have one last meal here before the public holiday," said the 36-year-old Mr Ong, who has been running the business with his 34-year-old brother Choon Hui under the supervision of their father.
Tomorrow, every customer will be entitled to one free drink and a choice between chicken rice, laksa, fishball noodles and wanton mee, promised Mr Ong.
