Ming Chung Restaurant established in 1933, is one of Singapore’s oldest Henghua restaurants.It was started by the late Ho Ah Tong, a migrant from Putian in Fujian province, China. During the older time, the restaurant was on Weld Road, opposite the present “Thieves Market” in the Sungei Road area. The restaurant serve it purpose of catering to the Henghua immigrants’ cravings for home-style Henghua food have also became a meeting place of sorts for the local Henghua and Hokkien communities. Henghua is a minority Chinese dialect of the immigrants from Putian in Fujian province. The dialect and cuisine are closest to that of Foochow and Hokkien dialects, but is also unique in its own ways. The restaurant was named “Ming Chung”, meaning “People” in Chinese. It is to reflect the affordable home-style Henghua food for the diverse clientele including rickshaw riders and labourers.

Henghua Lor Mee (braised noodle) is a must have with the regulars. Unlike the Hokkien style dark sauce version, Henghua Lor Mee is a white broth wok-cooked version with a hearty serving of ingredients which include vegetables, seafood, pork and clams.
