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.

Thank you for reading my article about the Chinese Supermarket in Mitcham. I think Hoo Hing is one of the most interesting shops in the area. I love oriental food so I think we are very lucky to have a local Chinese supermarket nearby.
