SINGAPORE - Popular Hong Kong chain Tsui Wah's first outlet in South-east Asia will open in Singapore on June 15.
The Hong Kong cha chan teng (coffee shop-style) outlet will be located in Clarke Quay, with a seating capacity of more than 140.
The outlet will serve signature items, including the milk tea, crispy bun with condensed milk and the curry series, said Jumbo Group and Tsui Wah Group in a joint statement on Wednesday (May 30).
More items on the menu at the Singapore outlet will be announced soon, the statement added.
For months, chefs from Tsui Wah in Hong Kong have been training local staff in Singapore.
"Some of these chefs will also be stationed here to have a hand in food preparation and ensure the high standards of quality and freshness," the statement added.
Tsui Wah in Singapore is a franchise by Vista F&B Services, a joint venture between Tsui Wah Holdings and Jumbo Group, which is behind Jumbo Seafood restaurants.
Earlier, in March, Jumbo Group announced that its subsidiary Jumbo F&B Services had entered a joint venture agreement with Kang Wang Holdings, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tsui Wah Holdings, to expand into the Singapore market.
Tsui Wah, founded in 1967 in Mong Kok, has 70 outlets in Hong Kong, Macau and China, and is known for its Cantonese-style comfort food.
