Many would agree that Tsui Wah would be a perfect dish for late-night suppers after dancing all night at the club, especially since it is conveniently located at Clarke Quay. However, given the pandemic, clubs are not allowed to operate and the queue at Tsui Wah may have possibly dwindled.

But this does not dismiss its ever so popular Hong Kong dishes, which are a huge fan favourite among many. Apart from their location at Clarke Quay, they have opened two other outlets at Jem and The Heeren. Head down there and enjoy their ever so delicious Tsui Wah Signature Pork Chop Bun and King Prawns in XO Sauce with Tossed Noodles at this cosy Cha Chaan Taang!
