Soong Kee

Purveyor of fine beef & pork mince noodles and beef balls.

 

I chose this particular vantage to show that Maybank inhabits the rest of the buildings on Soong Kee's block. Apparently Maybank had wanted to buy all of the shophouses in that block in order to build a skyscraper as their HQ but the Soong Kee owners refused to sell at any price. :D

 

The Soong Kee business actually started in the laneway behind the current shop and over time they were able to buy the current shop where I am sure they turn over $hundreds of thousands if not $millions a year.
