Got tired of having breakfast at Thomson Plaza, so we drove just a bit further down to Hwa Nam.
FYI, if the parallel parking lots outside Hwa Nam are fully occupied (usually the case), go down to Sin Ming plaza and park at their open air carpark! That was what we did 🙂 many empty lots.
Hwa Nam was expectedly quiet on a Saturday morning – we reached there at about 830am. Maybe too early? Sat inside coz outside tables all filled.
Their steamer baskets are also displayed in full view for you to pick and choose. These pork ribs and chicken feet I chose were good! Pork ribs had hardly any bones – fatty and nice. Chicken feet had quite a lot of flesh too.
The bill, plus 2 canned drinks, came up to $17.20. Oh we ordered the popiah (told 2 of the staff in fact), but it didn’t arrive.. So we just went without. Their egg tarts are apparently quite good too, I see people packing them home.
Overall Hwa Nam is a simple nice place for homely dim sum dishes. I think they serve Zhi char dishes in the evening too. It’s the only place at upper Thomson serving dim sum, hubby observed. Service is okay, I like the friendly patient uncle!
