The Hoo Hing Cafe
The store also features a small café which is open from 11:45-16:00, and serves dumplings, dim sum, soup, and noodles. The menu is quite small but the food is affordable and delicious.
The photographs below show what the cafe looks like. I was there just before it opened but it normally gets very busy and there are limited tables. It’s a good place to get lunch at a reasonable price, and the food is freshly cooked and served quickly.
Recommended dishes: The dumplings are excellent, as is the won ton noodle soup, duck with noodles and chicken and mushroom.
Hoo Hing is located at: Bond Rd, Mitcham, CR4 3EB.
The nearest tube station is Colliers Wood on the northern line. From there it is either a 20 minute walk, or an 11 minute bus journey on the 152 bus. If you are driving, the store has a big car park at the front.
