About Us

Wok N' Staple is a brand extension of Dragon Phoenix, a heritage restaurant in Singapore that was established in 1963 by our culinary director, Chef Hooi Kok Wai. 

Chef Hooi is renowned for creating many iconic Singaporean dishes such as Chilli Crab, Yam Basket, and the famous Singapore Yu-sheng, a lunar new year festive dish that has become part of Singapore food culture for the celebration of Lunar New Year in Singapore. 

Wok N' Staple was established to offer Chef Hooi's culinary creations as well as some iconic Singapore delicacies to promote Singapore's UNESCO-inscribed Hawker-food Culture in a multicultural urban context across the world.  

We have started our first store in the US, and in just a few months since we opened, we have prided ourselves as the best-selling Singapore-style chilli crab store in New York City.

We believe that food has the power to bring people together and showcase the best of a culture, and we're excited to share our unique Singapore flavours with you.  We look forward to embark with you on a voyage of gastronomic discovery.
