Unless you know where you’re headed, you might never find Hoo Hing (at least that’s what it felt like to me!). Thank goodness for Katie my Irish voiced Tom-Tom girl!
Hoo Hing is a cash-and-carry oriental food specialist shop in a semi-industrial area of Mitcham. From the outside, it looks quite ordinary, but this mid-sized shop offers exceptional variety in its restaurant-grade cookware, produce, meats, shelf goods and frozen foods. Prices are competitive. Restaurant-size quantities are available.
Perhaps what impressed us most about Hoo Hing was the tiny cafe tucked into a corner next to the fresh vegetables. There you can order the most amazing dim sum, rice and noodle dishes, cooked fresh just for you. Char Siu buns and Pork and Prawn Siu Mai were fantastic (the best we’ve eaten in years), as was the roast pork rice. Fried wontons were decadent, but really satisfying.
If you like what you taste in the cafe, you can take it home with you. Hoo Hing stocks an excellent variety of ready to steam dumplings and dim sum in its frozen food section. Perfect for parties.
Definitely worth the trip!
