Ming Chung Restaurant 民众菜馆
Established in 1933, Ming Chung (Means ‘People’ in mandarin) Restaurant is one of the oldest Henghua coffeeshop style restaurant in Singapore. Over here, one will be served with authentic home styled Henghua food at affordable price.
I was here on a Sunday evening for dinner with my family as a sent off for my brother for the 17th Asian Games 2014 at Incheon. Would love to be at the games too, however, I missed out on the final spot! I believe God has other plans for me!
Since it was a Sunday, so the crowd was unavoidable and we had a short wait before being ushered to our table.
Out of all the dishes that we ordered, the Lor Mee (Large $8) and Batang Fish (Large $14) were my ‘outstanding’ dishes. By definition, these are food that aren’t in my regular food repertoire, what’s more when I visit a restaurant? Nonetheless, they were tasty and Batang Fish didn’t have the fishy odour and every bite was juicy.
I also noticed that small clams and seafood were added in almost all of our dishes.
Being a fan of Har Chiong Gai ($12) – Prawn Paste Chicken, Ming Chung’s recipe was acceptable and satisfying.
Over all, I noticed that Ming Chung Restaurant serves their food flavour in ‘moderate’ strength unlike the typical Singaporean and Malaysian style where food flavour are on the ‘heavier’ side. Perhaps, this is the Henghua style? I might be wrong though.
Our total bill was about $88 with 8 dishes, rice and a pot of tea for a family of 5.
