Dong Ya Building is a prime example of an Art Deco shophouse. With its sleek lines and smooth curvature, its sits pretty on the intersection between Keong Saik Road and Teck Lim Road. Since 1939, when the shophouse was built, the iconic Tong Ah Eating House was where people gathered for a humble breakfast of kopi and toast. It saw through the 1960s to 1980s, when the surrounding Keong Saik area was gripped with vice – brothels, gambling, gang fights and opium abuse.
