Hua Nam Restaurant To Close By End of March 2017
With the construction of the Thomson East Coast Line, businesses of restaurants and cafes along Upper Thomson have been affected. The long-standing Hwa Nam Restaurant will be pulling down its shutters by the end of March.
Started in the 50s as a roadside stall, Hwa Nam Restaurant is now managed by the third generation owners who have decided to retire.
Because I live near Thomson Road, Hwa Nam Restaurant is a place which I frequent for cheap dim sum and duck porridge. It’s not comparable to the big hotels but dining here evokes nostalgia. I will miss that sight of tall stacks of steamed baskets, with a backdrop of roast duck and char siew. Many of the dim sum items here have minced meat in them. They have the usual steamed items like siew mai and har kau, and also chee cheong fun with minced meat.
On days when we were more hungry, we went for carbs instead of small dim sum bites. Their duck rice is not bad, my typical comfort food on rainy days. The husband always go for the char siew rice. It has that old school taste just like what I used to have during my primary school days.
It’s unfortunate that they are closing soon. I wish them best of luck!
