Auntie Slayers Alert in Marine Parade – Pang Pang Western Food

The Pang brothers who operate a new Western food hawker stall in Marine Parade Central Market & Food Centre are attracting a fair bit of attention. There seem to be quite a lot of aunties queuing up at the Pang Pang Western Food stall operated by the two brothers offering grilled meats.

We visited Marine Parade Central Market & Food Centre recently looking to use our CDC Vouchers (read our CDC Vouchers Meal at Marine Parade Food Centre). A new hawker stall selling Western food caught our attention. It was operated by two young men. One was doing the cooking at the back. The other was helping with the food preparation, packing takeaway orders as well as dealing with customers. He was a rather charming young man. Perhaps that might explain the rather high number of female customers at the stall. It could also be that females are better at spotting a good bargain.

The big signboard at the front of the stall tells you what the hawker stall offers. There are grilled chicken, pork chops, steaks as well as various sides – all very reasonably priced.

Pork Chop with Pasta

I ordered the Pork Chop with Pasta ($8). The food would be prepared to order. A buzzer was given to me to prompt me when the food was ready for collection. The wait for the food was about 10 minutes.

Pang Pang’s Pork Chop with Pasta dish included a fried egg and boiled broccoli. The two large bone-in chops were marinated well, resulting in a delightful combination of tastes. The surface of the chops was seared to create bits of caramelized crust. The pork chops had a hint of smokiness, and the meat itself was tender. The addition of demi-glace (a brown sauce) made the pork chops even more enjoyable.

The brown sauce spaghetti did not look very interesting. However, the pasta was very well prepared to achieve the harmony between tenderness and firmness, ensuring it embraced the sauce wonderfully. Surprisingly, the brown sauce spaghetti turned out to be quite delectable. I wouldn’t hesitate to choose it as my main course.

Ex-Astons Cooks – Pang Brothers

When I finished the pork chop of Pang Pang Western Food in Marine Parade Central Market & Food Centre, I thought to myself that it was as good as, if not better than, the pork chop in places like Astons and Collins.

A few days back, the title of the article in 8days.sg – Astons Cooks Turned Hawkers: “Our Ex-Colleagues Say Our Chicken Chop Is Better” caught my attention but I did not immediately relate it to Pang Pang Western Food. It was only upon reading the article that I learnt that “Johor-born brothers Lucas and Bernard Pang, 32 and 31 respectively, used to work as cooks at casual steakhouse chain Astons” and that to attract more people to try Pang Pang Western Food, “they have kept prices very affordable, ‘around 30 to 40 per cent lower than Astons’ “.

So the aunties patronising Pang Pang Western Food may be there because the Pang brothers are “lang zai” or “shuai ge”, or more likely because they know that they can get Astons standard food at much lower prices.
