The 125-year-old Ser Wong Fun will make its way to Paste Bangkok to showcase an array of signature dishes, made from recipes passed down through several generations of the Ng family.

    About Ser Wong Fun, Hong Kong’s oldest restaurant

    Currently managed by Gigi Ng, the fourth generation of the family business, Ser Wong Fun is the longest-standing Hong Kong restaurant best known for its soul-warming traditional cuisine. Gigi’s great-grandparents first opened Ser Wong Fun in 1895 in the town of Dali, in the Nanhai district of Guangdong province. The business was passed down to Ng’s grandfather and father, and together they brought the business to a Hong Kong street food stall on Gilman Street, Central. In 1989, the street stall moved to a restaurant on Cochrane Street, where it remains today as Hong Kong’s favourite destination for hearty snake soup, among other popular local delicacies.

    On 27 & 28 September, Ser Wong Fun’s pop-up menu will complement Executive Chef Bee Satongun’s modern Thai flavours at Paste, promoting a unique harmony of two heritage-rich cuisines. Below is the full Ser Wong Fun pop-up menu:
