"132" means good business in Cantonese. That's right! This is the guess of many for the use of these interesting numbers as their business brand.

However, the truth that lay behind "132" was ... the stall number at Siglap market! That was where they created a name for themselves and therefore it was retained as the auspicious business name as well as for sentimental value.

“132” mee pok kway teow was founded by Mr Chan Sek Inn who had push carted his mee pok from the age of 20, mastering his skill till late 2007. His wife had been peddling teochew noodles with her father since a young girl at Joo Chiat area.

Both passed down their skills to their 2nd son (Wing). Hence that explains why authentic teochew noodles are served at 132 mee pok kway teow till this day.
