Jay Chou fans, we hate to break the news to you but your favourite scallion pancake brand, Liang Sandwich Bar, has closed down all its outlets in Singapore without any explanation.
If you’re a fan of Jay Chou, you’ve probably had a taste of the flaky pancakes from this Jay Chou-endorsed brand. This pancake shop proudly displays the Mandopop singer’s face across their outlets, which serve up flaky, prata-like pancakes stuffed with a variety of fillings.
However, there is a twist to the situation since we first reported the closing of Liang Sandwich Bar on 17 Feb 2020.
According to a press release sent on 21 Feb 2020 by the Master Franchisee for South East Asia, Liang Group of Companies, the sudden closure of all outlets in Singapore was made solely by the local franchisee without proper consultation or authorisation from the Master Franchisee.
And that’s not all. Liang Sandwich Bar may not be closing in Singapore after all.
Happening for two consecutive weekends this April (19 to 21 April 2019 & 26 to 28 April 2019), Singapore Turf Club at Kranji will play host to Shilin-inspired Night Market—a Taiwanese-themed street food festival of massive proportions.
Boasting rows upon rows of stalls selling authentic Taiwanese street snacks such as mee sua, ji pai (Taiwanese fried chicken cutlet), and many more!
Just to be clear, the Shilin Singapore is a Shilin-inspired Night Market concept and not the actual Shilin Night Market from Taiwan.
The Salted Plum pays tribute to hearty, comforting Taiwanese street food that is the hallmark of Taiwan’s ever-popular night markets.
Managed by the same people behind the former FIVE-TEN, The Salted Plum—located in Boat Quay—came to fruition after many months of intensive research while Chef Shawn Koh was travelling through Taiwan in hopes of replicating the same flavours but with an innovative twist back in Singapore.
The casual restaurant serves a medley of Taiwanese street food—from favourites such as Braised Pork Belly, Braised Pig Intestines and Taiwanese Sausage Patties to other interesting options including the likes of Salted Pork and Oyster Steamed Egg.
And just like what you would expect from the street food stalls at Taiwanese night markets, prices at The Salted Plum are kept affordable so you can indulge in Taiwanese-style meals, “tapas” and alcohol all day (and night) long without feeling the pinch. READ ON
